Saskia Oranje co-founded DOOR architects alongside Karin Dorrepaal.
DOOR architects stands for open design, because a truly sustainable result grows through collective development. We believe in strong long term strategies and a simple first step.
Since we started our office five years ago circular thinking and acting has changed our daily practice. From making the municipal buildings in Eindhoven more sustainable to the circular breeding ground for C-Bèta in Schiphol Valley. From affordable circular housing at the Fridtjof Nansenhof to our own circular office building, the PIT lab in the BRET Garden in Sloterdijk, Amsterdam. Every experience takes our team a step further. We combine fresh ideas with a realistic approach. We believe that boundaries in the construction sector must be broken and it is part of our DNA to come up with new tools when old mechanisms fail.
Only when every stakeholder stands behind the design, the result is good. We look for the shared story.
