Brian van der Plaat Design is a solo operated building design practice, which began in 2003.
My connection to architecture is through the process of drawing and making, which comes from my background growing up in the ’70s and ’80s. All projects and concepts are developed by hand as sketches and models. It is a hands-on craftsman solution, which allows me to explore ideas. I use it as an active communication tool to show possibilities and explain concepts to my clients.
I create simple, elegant projects by following the Modernist principles. All projects are based around a simple planning solution and developed around a rational structure. Each job is about possibilities, working closely with each client to create unique, beautiful projects with timeless appeal.
I work on a range of projects from single residential dwellings, whether alterations and additions or new builds, mixed-use and multi-residential architecture, as well as retail and commercial projects. As a sole trader, I have a craftsman-like approach to each project, which suits my skill base and personality.
