ABOUT ZEST

ZEST architecture is an architecture studio founded in 2009 by the Dutch architect Co Govers, after working with architects such as Max van Aerschot in the Netherlands and Josep Lluis Mateo in Spain. Co holds a Masters in Architecture from TU Delft with a specialization in sustainability. Her great talent, and something ZEST has always focused on, is the ability to combine sustainability with elegance, and this is why projects by ZEST architecture always stand out.

在ZEST我们用我们的传统和尖端建筑技术和材料知识,设计具有更好的室内环境的建筑,最大限度地减少需要加热,冷却和人工照明。关于能源效率和可再生能源的决定是从一开始这一进程的一部分。

我们的设计是由天然材料的使用,这是我们在极简主义往往是创新的方式适用的特点。我们相信材料年龄精美导致固有的耐用性,所以我们要特别注意材料的“侘寂”,日语里是指美丽的天然材料获取随着时间的推移。我们要注意在设计和我们的项目的执行细节,是我们与我们的客户取得成功的关键之一。

As well as working for private clients and developers on homes, housing, boutique hotels and offices, we have also had success with international competitions. Our mosque, the Ray of Light in Dubai, won a prize in 2010 and has been published in magazines and websites worldwide. Noted for its beauty and for the fact that it’s the first mosque design that provides equal access to both men and women, it has been exhibited in various museums in Germany in 2012 and 2013 as part of the exhibition “Kubus oder Kuppel”. It continues to play an important role in the discourse on Mosque design, as witnessed by the fact that Co Govers was asked to present and discuss it at the 2019 International Conference on Mosque Design in Kuala Lumpur. In 2014 ZEST Architecture took part in the Venice Biennale, presenting an installation in the exhibition “Time Space Existence”, organized by the Global Art Affairs Foundation (LINK).

我们的团队由该相信好的设计开始与观察和聆听的建筑师。我们都讲英语,但荷兰语,德语,法语,中国,加泰罗尼亚语和西班牙语也讲在我们的办公室。我们已经幸运地工作,谁启发了我们,使我们的工作变化和令人兴奋的梦幻般的客户。从巴塞罗那工作,ZEST结构是完全在西班牙和荷兰csgo竞猜的平台的许可,在葡萄牙,巴利阿里群岛和英国的同事。

你有一个项目你想讨论with us?

We were delighted to work with Co Govers and Maria Matamala in all phases of the project, from planning to the final execution. Being based in Scandinavia much of the communication was done long distance with English as the working language. The professionalism and level of (friendly) service of ZEST architecture was and is exceptional. On our behalf they dealt with all parties involved in realizing the project, which included many bespoke and complex solutions. We have warmly recommended ZEST architecture to our friends and would not hesitate to do so to others.

Co Govers and her team really listen to your needs and wishes, and are full of ideas for spatial solutions and materials that really made our house special. They combined practicality with truly noble materials and delivered clever solutions throughout the house that are perfectly finished.

Co and the team at Zest are exceptional. Importantly for me they spent time getting to know us, in order to understand our requirements. As a result they have designed an exceptionally beautiful home for my husband and I located in The Gavarres. They have held our hand every step of the way, and have filled us with confidence. I know our finished home will be everything we've dreamed of.

In a village on the Costa Brava our apartment with sea view was in need of a thorough renovation. In order to carry out these drastic works, we chose Zest Architecture. From Belgium we could follow the evolution of the renovation. A fine collaboration with Co and her team resulted in a great result and this within the set term. Highly recommended !!!
