So far, we have published a series of catalogues and various monographs in book form about, among other things, our vision, working method and the importance of detail in our architecture. In addition, we issue special occasional publications, such as newspapers, an interior design fan and the collected Cobouw columns by cepezed partner Ronald Schleurholts.

cepezed columns  

A beautifully designed fan-folded book with a selection of the columns that cepezed partner and architect Ronald Schleurholts wrote between January 2015 and autumn 2019 for the construction newspaper Cobouw. The pieces were written from daily practice and also from the perspective of cepezed’s continuous pursuit of quality, innovation and the sustainability and professionalization of the construction industry. Above all, they are an invitation to a dialogue between the many partners inside and outside the building world.

lustrumwaaier cepezedinterieur  

We celebrated the five-year anniversary of cepezedinterieur with, among other things, a special set of cards that provide an overview of work from 2013-2018. During that time, the designers realized an impressive palette of projects, ranging from offices, homes, exhibition set-ups and educational institutions to various other types of public buildings. The concept of the card set was inspired by the colour fan: a design instrument used a great deal by interior designers. The loose cards have a handy size of 155 x 75 mm. On one side there is a project photo, while the other side provides concise project information. The cards are brought together in a felt-like cassette made from recycled PET bottles: a sustainable reference to the frequent use of bio-based and circular materials in our projects.

the work of cepezed – catalogue 5 (2018)  

From research building to cultural hotspot, from collection centre to luxury apartment complex and from town hall to airport pier: like its predecessors, cepezed’s catalogue 5 is full of projects in various stages between initial design and in use. In all the designs, the complexity of technology and functionality has been brought back to the essence. Anything not necessary is left out, while everything really necessary is greatly simplified, thoughtfully systemized and elegantly arranged. At the basis there is invariably an unambiguous concept: the composition, structure and function are clearly distinguishable. That makes the buildings honest, often literally open-hearted.

moreelsebrug special (2017)  

Publication about the Moreelsebrug, the bridge spanning the railway track at Utrecht Central Station and a connection for cyclists and pedestrians between the Croeselaan and the Moreelsepark. From different angles, the special explains the idea of an elongated, slightly curved promenade with trees. Topics include the production of the prefabricated components, the assembly process, the tree technology and the lighting design. The publication was made in collaboration with project partners ProRail, Colijn Beton- en Waterbouw, ABT and Arup.

cepezed@work (2015, 2016)  

Several editions of the company magazine cepezed@work. On the basis of a variety of projects, the editions provide insight into daily practice at cepezed. The newspapers, which are published in large format and on sturdy paper, give employees, design partners and clients, among others, the opportunity to have their say. You can read about subjects such as public-private partnerships, transformation tasks, sources of inspiration and circular building.

relocation newspaper (2014)  

For years, cepezed had its office in a characteristic self-designed and much-discussed building on the Phoenixstraat in Delft. When this became too small, we relocated in 2014. Now we work in the former laboratory of the department of Mechanical and Marine Engineering at the Technical University. Earlier, this building also housed the Museum of Technology and the University’s Refectory. Completely in line with our views on reuse, we transformed the monumental building ensemble, dating from 1911, into a modern multi-company building. The relocation newspaper tells the special history of the complex and shows how cepezed uses it now.

the work of cepezed – catalogue 4 (2014)  

Because we had just moved to the historic TU complex on the Ezelsveldlaan when catalogue 4 was published, this time we chose transformation as our introductory theme. Once again thicker than all the previous catalogues, the spectrum of projects in this book is even broader and more varied. Catalogue 4 also shows the initial results of cepezedinterieur, which started in 2013.

interior newspaper (2013)  

In 2013, cepezed started its own interior design department. Prior to that, we also regularly designed high-profile interiors, including designs for various embassies. But with the establishment of cepezedinterieur, expertise in interiors within cepezed really acquired an identity of its own. The interior newspaper presents the first driving forces behind the department and explains how cepezed sees the connection between architecture and interior.

the work of cepezed - in detail (2013)  

The publication in detail zooms in on the close cohesion between function, concept, technology and elaboration in cepezed’s oeuvre. You can read how this cohesion is reflected in the refined detailing of our designs. The book opens with an extensive essay and continues with the presentation of no less than 15 projects, explained in text and drawings. It demonstrates that, for cepezed, the detail is an essential architectural design instrument at various levels of scale. In 2013, the book was included in the Best Dutch Book Designs exhibition in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.

the work of cepezed – catalogue 3 (2012)  

Among other aspects, catalogue 3 describes how cepezed managed to stay afloat in the financial crisis that started in 2008. And how, in spite of this impactful crisis, we have actually only continued to grow. In addition to numerous new projects presented in words and images, the book contains four introductory essays about sustainability, healthcare tasks and renovations and transformations. You can also read about the use of BIM, which is now fully established but was still in its infancy at the time.

the work of cepezed – catalogue 2 (2009)  

The second catalogue opens with an essay on the different types of sustainability in our work. The various projects are again arranged by function. This time, each category is preceded by a brief description of the approach. How do we deal with tasks in the education sector? What is our view of offices and residential building? Besides all the differences, there are also strong constants, for example the pursuit of clarity, constructibility and penetration of daylight.

westraven - office building for rijkswaterstaat (2008)  

Monograph on our major transformation and expansion of the Westraven office tower situated beside the A12 motorway near Utrecht. The original building was constructed using highly innovative techniques and was seen as a symbol of innovation in the 1970s. However, in later years it became more and more a sick building. cepezed transformed it into a light and transparent complex where people enjoy working. The texts by Olof Koekebakker are amply illustrated with sketches, drawings and beautiful photography by Jannes Linders.

the work of cepezed – prototypes (2007)  

In this book, several authors examine the various aspects of product development, the building process and architecture in cepezed’s work. The writers include architecture expert Piet Vollaard, (by now) emeritus professor Jan Westra and senior lecturer in circular building Ed Melet. The book also documents nine characteristic example projects that explain the different arguments. The edition was originally sold together with the first catalogue in a luxury cassette. The set was nominated for the RIBA Book Awards.

the work of cepezed – catalogue (2006)  

The first catalogue of cepezed’s work, published in 2006 by the then-named publishing house 010. The book was designed by Reynoud Homan, with whom we still enjoy working. The book gives an overview of the transparent, sustainable, humane and technically advanced architecture with which we made a name for ourselves and covers more than 30 years of design expertise. The catalogue was also released in a luxury cassette together with the prototypes collection of essays described above. The set was nominated for the RIBA Book Awards in 2008.
