3plus1 combines the experience, expertise, and craftsmanship of three Dutch studios to offer you the best of Dutch Design in the field of architecture, urban planning, sustainable building and landscape architecture. Crisp lines, imaginative details and reinvention are trademark qualities of our work. 3plus1 & Dutch Approach The Dutch Approach to urban projects has gained increasing international attention as the Netherlands learned to deal with complex urban conditions and an ever increasing population. The need to create new land, intensify existing areas, and create new communities and of course dealing with water has shaped our ideas. At 3plus1 we plan for the future while respecting the past. Our designs combine the new and the historical in exciting ways to enhance the existing potential of a location. A key element in our work is The Mix. By subtly blending different functions, people and materials within a carefully designed public realm, 3plus1 promotes the inner wealth and social rest of a society. 3plus1 & Dutch Design Our projects at 3plus1 embody the spirit of Dutch Design, which the Netherlands is renowned for. From architecture to product design, from graphics to landscaping, our country has developed an approach to design that combines the practical with the beautiful, the historical with the contemporary, the functional with the sensory, the extraordinary with the affordable, and humor with formality. 3plus1 & Timekeeping Time is an important factor in our work. By taking the time to plan a project as a team and preparing well we save time during the building process. But time also plays a factor in our design process as an urban condition: how a project grows and develops its full potential over time as people inhabit it. 3plus1 excels in creating the conditions which allow a project to last throughout time.
