Both architects want to express themselves by means of architecture, which is where the Dutch abbreviation dmvA stands for (door middel van Architectuur). Together with their team of architects they completed several private and public projects, such as offices, apartments, sport accommodation, schools, social housing, private houses, shop-interiors and art projects. Occasionally design-objects are created. Commissions are frequently won in competition and many of them were (inter) nationally nominated or received national awards.
