13 May 2022 – Our office will be joined by Jeffrey Reule as of 1 June. I have known Jeffrey for a long time through my teaching at the Rotterdam School of Architecture, where he was an enthusiastic student. I got to know him as an intelligent, hard-working and always cheerful student. Het demonstrated his love for high-quality timeless housing that is affordable and built in a sustainable way. At the same time Jeffrey worked for Helga Snel, with whom he has developed the pleasure of building for more than 7 years. Before that, he worked for Mecanoo (as I did myself in a long forgotten past).

Last autumn I was a member of the committee that judged Jeffrey’s graduation work.  He graduated with high marks on an urban design for the inner city of Rotterdam. I am looking forward to working with Jeffrey on the answers to the continuing and changing need for housing.
