"There is the outside, the interior and this in-between, which can be only a few millimeters thick or whole meters, and whose study can be summed up in a few sentences, develop in a book , or become a profession in its own right. " - Robert-Jan van SANTEN
VS-A is a set of design offices dealing with design and engineering applied to building envelopes.
The agency now consists of three agencies located in Lille, Hong Kong and Seoul.
Our primary mission is to design facades and covers expressive, functional and economic, thus meeting the expectations of the Client and the Architect.
In time, our missions have diversified to cover complementary areas. Examples include thermal, energy, structure, project management assistant, forensic expertise, and even project management in specific cases.
We operate on projects of new construction or rehabilitation, of variable size, in private or public market, national or international and with all types of programs.
But what brings all these projects together is that we seek to write an original story from the genesis of the project, thus making the architectural and technical reflections indissociable. In doing so, we develop customized solutions, with an assertive character that is part of the architectural project.
Your project is unique, so are our answers.
Mainly composed of architects but also of engineers and architectural engineers, VS-A is made up of a multidisciplinary and experienced team able to answer all the issues raised by the building envelope.
We present ourselves today as a team concerned with designing buildings that are in good agreement with the contexts in which they fit (urban, economic and environmental contexts) and, above all, meet the needs of their users as effectively as possible.
