In 1985 Bob Kip started BOB Architectuur in Paris. In 2002 the company moved to Arnhem due to the increase in the number of clients in the Netherlands. Bob Kip and his partner Petra Brons who is a fashion and interior designer, form a creative and commercial team. They lay down four conditions on their designs: 1) To transform the client’s schedule of required into a total concept. 2) Exciting and innovative designing, colours and materials. 3) A strong cohesion between exterior and interior. 4) On all levels the building must work aesthetically as well as functionally whereby function is more important than the shape. They use the most advanced CAD software and 3D models for their designs at any time and in any variation to visualize. Their motto is fast and responsive, effective and agile at all stages from concept to completion.
