NOAHH = Network Oriented Architecture.
NOAHH is an allround international operating architectural office and was founded by Patrick Fransen in 2014. The office is specialized in complex projects, such as cultural and leisure buildings. The International Education Culture Cluster (OCC) in The Hague and the Music Centre TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht are examples of its designing ability. TivoliVredenburg won the Rietveld Award 2015. Schools also form an important part of our knowledge, loyal to a strong renewing pedagogical concept. NOAHH believes in the social aspects of the architecture and urbanism. For Schoolenaer we won the ‘Lieven-the-Key penning’, the first prize for best urban project in Haarlem of the last decade. The projects are always the result of an intensive, service-oriented interaction with our clients, our partners, the budget and the project context.
Driven by the ambition to meet the challenges of an ever-changing society, NOAHH – Network Oriented Architecture – explores a network-based approach to deal with the embedded nature or the building tradition and the unexpected factors of the architectural and urban processes, continuously keeping the social aspects of architecture and urbanism at heart. The core of NOAHH’s approach is to create buildings that stimulate social encounter in open spaces that enable people to meet and connect.
