Monique van Doorne is an independent architect and interior architect. Registered in the National Architects Register. Since 1990 she has been designing for companies and private individuals.
Monique designs bank branches and offices for the business market. In her designs she responds to developments such as The New Way of Working, customer experience, sustainability and Turn2. At the end of 2012, Monique’s design for Rabobank Zaandam was nominated for the Arc12 interior award by De Architect magazine.
Monique works from the philosophy that the extra floor in usage wishes during the design phase will pay double reconsideration later on; both in an appropriate design where people feel comfortable and in lower realization costs. This is particularly the case for private homes, where Monique focuses on the renovation and interior design of villas and luxury apartments.
Depending on the nature and scope of the assignment, Monique van Doorne works alone or in teams. And changes her role from leading architect to interior architect.
For the greater part of her childhood, Monique spent in Canada where the family business realized construction projects in the outlying areas. In this way she developed her passion for design and nature at a young age. This became the motive for her study Architectural Design & Interior at the Academy of Visual Arts in Breda. As a second study she completed the training as an architect at the Academy for Architecture in Rotterdam.
Monique draws its inspiration from the in-depth discussions with future users, study trips, trade fairs, city trips and last but not least; nature.
