“I love simplicity and beauty. For each assignment I will try to find the simplest answer and bring out the beauty that is hidden in that answer in an appealing design. I see this as not a matter of style but as an approach. There is never just one answer to a question, but there is always one that I like the most.”

Henk is an architect and one of the founding partners of Sputnik. He plays a decisive role in all Sputnik’s projects, from the first sketch to the delivery of the built result. In addition, Henk has been architect advisor at the Dutch Railways.

“For me the essence of architecture lies in the way spaces enable optimal use. I enjoy this puzzle solving aspect of architectural design while I always have the end user in mind.”
