KCAP Architects&Planners is known for the development of sustainable urban living environments, with buildings and public spaces that enliven and renew the city. In our designs, we combine our experience with architecture, urban planning and landscape design to create social and spatial cohesion. Designs with the necessary flexibility for adapting to the individual needs of users and new social developments.
Characteristic of our design approach is our ambition to add quality to the living environment in the city. Through vital programming, the buildings are connected with their surroundings. In the projects that we develop, new concepts for living and working, culture, sustainability and infrastructure go hand in hand with the social aspects for current and future generations.
