Architects and studios: NU architectuuratelier 1-1 / 1

Linq Communication, Gent

Unlike the majority of the young Flemish architectural firms with spartan attitudes, NU architectuuratelier is ultimately aiming for an abstraction after which axioms are put at risk and where honesty of the material in the final image is reflected rather than expressive making the creative process.

NU architectuuratelier

NU architectuuratelier is founded in 2004 by Armand Eeckels (°1973), Halewijn Lievens (°1975) Arunas Arlauskas (°1967), in Ghent. They studied at the Hogeschool voor Wetenschap en Kunst, Departement Architectuur, campus Sint-Lucas Gent. Arunas left the architecture studio in 2007.

NU architectuuratelier is the working platform for intense architecture and experimental development, led by Armand Eeckels and Halewijn Lievens. Founded in 2004, the ambition of NU is to question, develop and affirm in close interaction with its clients, matters of space, material, landscape and design to contribute to our social and mental environment.

In a great variety of realized and approved commissions, its intense approach has resulted in specific projects, with significant value and meaning. The office pursues tactile and experimental architecture in combining both large and small size projects in its practice, and to turn functional expectations into inspirations.
