Marlous Vriethoff, Noud Paes. NAMO Architecture

NAMO Architecture. The architecture studio NAMO Architecture was founded in 2022 by Marlous Vriethoff and Noud Paes based on their passion for sustainable projects and inspiring design and construction processes.

The word NAMO has its origins in Sanskrit and means "act with respect." For them, that is exactly what sustainability is about. Because true sustainability arises from an attitude, from a way of looking at the world. With respect to the people for and with whom a building is created. But also for the urban and natural environment. And with respect to the future, for the energy that is used, the CO2 that is emitted, and the construction materials that are used. They help build an ecosystem, seeking a balance between maximum quality and minimum environmental impact.

Since her training in architecture and construction technology, Marlous Vriethoff has always had a fascination with sustainable architecture and construction technology. This was reflected in his doctoral research into the possibilities of industrial temporary housing, focusing on flexibility and sustainable use of materials. Later, he acquired a lot of experience in professional practice as an architect of building and interior projects. She is also an advisor on projects regarding sustainable certification (GPR, BREEAM and LEED) and the use of healthy and bio-based building materials. Marlous has also contributed as a visiting professor at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture and TU Delft.

Noud Paes has worked as a project architect for the last 15 years on a variety of projects, both in terms of typology and format. From residential buildings to international schools and from innovation centers to housing. What is essential in his working method is the search for achieving synergy between the elements that make up a good building, such as the environment, architecture, ecology, materials and spatial experience. In addition, Noud has contributed to the public debate on sustainability with various conferences, talks and inspiration sessions.
