Philosophy

Architectural firm Egide Meertens is a young firm that is located in the town Riemst, Belgium, near Maastricht, The Netherlands. The firm consists of 6 young architects

The projects that we realize are based on a simple, well-considered concept that is a combination of the customer's wishes and the surroundings. While designing we're consciously looking for sober, simple spaces with a high experience value: a design that is easy to fill in and agreeable to live in.

We prefer to use fair forms and lasting materials that because of there individuality give warmth and patine to the project. The result is a reliable simple architecture that meets the needs of the inhabitants and their surroundings.

We choose quality before fashionable ideas and redundant luxury.

As a young team of architects we have, until now, mainly designed houses. Amongst our realised projects, you can find single - family dwellings in Belgium and the Netherlands, as well social housing projects, apartments and allocation.
