  1. I came across this website while researching Architecten DVVT work. I have enjoyed your personal review of their work. What do you think about their raw (but crafted) use of materials? Many people find it hard to chew, but I believe the aesthetics are slowly shifting.

    • I like it. I think it’s honest. Or at least they do it in an honest way. The raw aesthetic can come off like a kind of fetish and be too self conscious, but I feel with dvvt it’s about saving cost to allow for more spatial and constructional inventiveness. They also seem to understand contrast very well. Sometimes it’s a wonderfully constructed metal window box added to an old house and other times old materials in a gut renovation. I don’t think it’s easy to do. They have a good eye for it.
