reForm Architects’ international team combines experience, commitment and innovation to offer a diverse range of clients a highly professional design led service.
We are friendly and approachable and see a close collaboration with our clients, design teams and contractors as an essential and enjoyable part of any project.
We do not adhere to an architectural style, which can often compromise a relevant design response. Instead reForm offers a contemporary and eclectic approach that treats problems as opportunities to deliver unique and elegant buildings and spaces.
Following a successful collaboration on a number of Award Winning projects in the Netherlands, reForm has established UK partnership with IAA Architecten enabling us to deliver a broader range and scale of projects for our UK Clients.
reForm believes that well-designed buildings and spaces are vital for successful and sustainable towns and communities. All good design must be functional, but it must also be humane and be well loved by its clients, users and the wider community. This benefits everyone and enriches our shared culture, and is only achievable if the needs and challenges of the client are fully understood from the outset.
Our approach is to consider each project and each Client’s needs as unique. We then adopt a rigorous but highly creative approach to bring out the maximum value in each specific circumstance. The right balance of financial, environmental, logistical, social and cultural value is achieved through our highly collaborative, ‘can do’ attitude.
The impact of design on the environment is greater than ever before, for better or worse. We now have the knowledge and capabilities to ensure that our design decisions have a positive impact, and help create a sustainable world.
reForm’s Managing Director, Nik Randall and the reForm team have extensive experience of designing housing, commercial, education and transport projects in the UK and Europe, winning numerous RIBA, Civic Trust, CABE and international awards.
Harry Abels and Nik Randall, the Managing Directors of IAA Architecten and reForm Architects, have collaborated on several award winning projects together in the Netherlands for more than 15 years. UK clients can now benefit from this established partnership, with project teams carefully assembled to combine local knowledge with international expertise, sharing data and staff across offices.
With offices in London, Amsterdam and Enschede their combined resources of over 70 architects, interior designers, building managers, building technicians, engineers, landscape architects and urbanists have successfully delivered a number of joint education, housing, healthcare, hotels, leisure and transport projects.
Our design approach is one where ideas, from concepts to details, are explored through sketches, physical models, CAD drawings and BIM. Combining the inputs of the entire design team and contractor each BIM model is developed as a fully coordinated design tool, reducing problems both during and after construction.
With over 45 years of successful project delivery we provide a highly efficient and professional service for clients in the UK and Northern Europe.
