Luuk Borremans, architect 

Luuk has been working at cepezed since 2020. He has a heart for complex tasks, which is not surprising because of his specialization in heritage and architecture.

After receiving his bachelor's degree in architecture, Luuk started working at the architectural firm Braaksma and Roos, which specializes in heritage transition and urban transformation. But studying continued to attract him and after two years of work experience he switched to TU Delft, where he got his master's degree in architecture, as he did at HBO in heritage. Immediately after he was able to start working as a BIM expert at Cadanz, the construction consortium that had been set up for the design and realization of the Amare cultural complex in The Hague - - in 2022, Luuk completed his professional experience period at cepezed.

It appeals to Luuk that cepezed is an interdisciplinary agency. This suits his conceptual approach to architecture "as a process from development to realization. Architecture is not a separate discipline, but closely linked to technical, financial and other process factors. Architecture is a spatial discipline, including a social and cultural component as well. 'Above all, a design must add value,' says Luuk, 'regardless of scale, and whether it is new construction or an adaptation of existing construction.'

Luuk has an analytical way of thinking. He designs from the intrinsic motivation to contribute to the livability of places. This is already evident from the graduation subject for his master: a redevelopment plan for the inner city of the Indonesian city of Bandung. He likes the fact that cepezed also does international projects, has a large team and is averse to fuss. His attention to the existing context of a building and to inner-city complexity in general are a valuable addition to the team. Which is not to say that he does not have an eye for detail - also in that respect he feels at home at cepezed.

Within cepezed, Luuk works on the expansion and renovation of the West Betuwe town hall. He finds it an interesting assignment because of the public function of the building, the connection with the surroundings and the relationship between old and new construction. But also because of the consistent application of wood - new for cepezed - in which constructions and wood connections remain in sight, just like with the steel kit of parts.
