"In every project,

we aim for a perfect symbiosis between the client, the house and our design."

Dieter Vander Velpen Architects is an Antwerp based architecture and interior design firm specialized in high end residential and hospitality projects. We aim for a perfect symbiosis between the client, the property and our designs.

We make what we call "couture architecture", an elaborate and detailed design based on the needs and personality of the client, into the smallest details. With the help of quality materials and extraordinary craftsmen, we aim to create the home of your dreams.

“Working with Dieter was an amazing experience. His vision and ability to communicate it is something you rarely see in this industry. From scribbles on a notepad to beautiful hyper realistic 3D mockups, Dieter takes you along and let’s you see what he has in mind.
He delivers on time, knows which levers to pull to keep you in budget, worked well with all parties involved (and in a NYC Coop, there are a lot).
I can’t wait for the next project to work on with him.“

“Dieter surprised us with a professional and impressive presentation of two 3D concepts for our UPR showroom.
His eye for details and in depth knowledge of the retail business immediately caught our attention and it resulted in a fantastic collaboration which consisted of the complete refurbishing of our showroom.
Dieter is absolutely client-oriented, incredibly flexible and creative at developing esthetic answers to all our challenges during our project.
Working together with Dieter is a real pleasure!”

"It was an amazing experience to work with Dieter and his team. It opened new perspectives for me but the problem is I am now so addicted to his style I want to start another project with him. The listening ear, creativity, professionalism, research of perfection are all part of Dieter Vander Velpen Architects. They know how to transform your wishes into reality going only for the best!"
