“Powerful Architecture with reduction of means”.
Bedaux de Brouwer Architects is an architectural practice with 25 employees and a high-quality portfolio. Over the years, a large number of projects have been recognised with prestigious awards. The work has been published in many countries throughout Europe and beyond.
The practice was founded in 1937 by Jos. Bedaux, when he built his own house. Here he also started his office. Later on, his sons George and Peer Bedaux, together with Jacq. de Brouwer, continued the practice. Nowadays Pieter and Thomas Bedaux have followed up their grandfather. Together with Jacq. de Brouwer and Peter Keijsers they form the head of the architectural practice.
The work has been characterized by a continuous stream of work with a distinct signature and great eye for detail. In former years the work mainly consisted of villas and governmental projects. Today’s work also includes integral interior projects, large scale residential and commercial projects and urban planning.
The work is characterised as timeless modernism, with great care for people and context. The designs are restrained, make clear gestures and have an overall concept. The common denominator of all the different projects is a reduced, clean-cut architecture with a pronounced material palette and sharp detailing.

Project selected:
Houtloods
Location:
Tilburg, the Netherlands
Year:
2014

The ‘Houtloods’ is the oldest, still remaining building in the ‘Spoorzone’, a former site of the Dutch Railroad Company. The ‘Houtloods’ is located in Tilburg, the Netherlands, and originally served as the railroad’s lumberyard. The exposed masonry arched structure opened up to the elements and allowed the lumber to naturally dry. Later on the masonry arches were filled in with brick and the enclosed building became a workshop.
During the renovation, the infilled arches were reopened to highlight the structure and let natural light in. Behind the arched wall, we placed a glass façade that complements and preserves the ‘newly’ opened structure.
Inside the building, detached from the glass façade and timber roof, we placed a large oak clad “furniture box” that houses the newly added functions and program. Inside this ‘box’ are offices, restrooms and storage while on the outside of the box public spaces are placed. The oak clad outside of the box offers room for an auditorium on one side and the open kitchen and bar of a trendy restaurant, appropriately named “the Houtloods”, Dutch for timber yard, on the other side.
