Casper Schwarz Architects
Casper Schwarz Architects was founded in 2006. Since then, more than a hundred clients have consulted this Dutch-based studio for challenging projects. Casper Schwarz formed a creative and skilled team with an eye for human aspects of interior design. We are involved and dedicated to our clients and the end-users of our designs. Our key features are ‘creative, communicative, cooperative and consistent’. High-end 3d software and a thorough knowledge of the tender and construction processes makes us a strong and reliable project partner in every sense.
The CSA design language is evolving permanently in several directions. Next to the human, environmental and workspace related aspects, Casper Schwarz has a growing interest in the refinement of interior design. He concluded that there is a remarkable difference in aged buildings before and after Modernism has arrived in the early 20th century. Casper Schwarz: “If we look at the charm of old houses or premises, we all love its atmosphere, its storytelling materials, its semi-ruined decorations, the elegant shapes and craftsmanship inheritances. Even if the spaces are empty, they are beautiful and a pleasure to be in. Compare that to the hollowness of the modernism blocky constructions. In empty or deserted state they feel awful. Like a place where you can turn mad if you stay there too long. If you look around you and compare pre-1930 buildings to what is built since then, most of the modern constructions have actually made cities just harder places. Less beautiful, less sophisticated, less human. In interiors, we have seen that too, but fortunately, that has turned around. Interior design is nowadays very human orientated and that is a great thing. Slowly architecture is getting there too. We are now seeking for the next step in interior design, to bring the sparkle back! What used to be the extra refinement, the final layer of beauty, the touch only an architect or artist could add, has been lost for many decades. Our aim is to bring that back. An inviting, human, embracing, energizing and sparkling interior design. A workspace to live in, to enjoy and to excel in. Old and new values can perfectly melt together and as ways of working keep evolving, we keep evaluating and refreshing our ideas. Designing is challenging ourselves, our clients and human habits.
