Studio Verter is an architecture practice based in Rotterdam. Established in 2014, Studio Verter is a collaboration between Claudio Saccucci and Roxane van Hoof, working in the fields of architecture, research and education.
With their practice they aim to produce a clear architecture that differentiates evident spaces with attention to detail and materiality, invariably relating to the capacity of architecture to contain the activities of daily life. The produced projects are part of an evolving research into material, composition and experiential qualities, showing an understanding of context through architectural detail, regardless of scale or program. It is here, where intentions and practice coincide, where their interest lies.
Previous work includes commissioned research projects like their work for ONSBANK and private interiors. They have participated in several international design competitions and have most recently completed the scenography for the 50th edition of the Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk.
Their work has been widely published in international publications including FRAME Magazine and Icon Magazine. Currently, they are working on several research projects and a series of private commissions.
