Francis Catteeuw

Compagnie-O is an open design platform. We operate within the free field of spatial design, centrifuging around our architectural production. We exploit spatial potentials using architecture, from detail to landscape. We call our work conceptual, but build at the same time: we are both generalists and specialists. Compagnie-O emerged from the initial collaboration between Joke Vermeulen and Francis Catteeuw. At present, a diverse team with mutually different viewpoints, interests, educational and professional background, age, nationality and skill set surrounds them. We refuse to develop a “signature-language” and aim to avoid typecasting as we accept uncertainty as a daily reality. We question the question. Initially unbiased, we make decisions through targeted insights.
Modus operandi is an uncurbed versatility. This flexibility steers the entirety of the design process and allows us to remain open to the complex richness of society. Versatility – because we don’t believe in a delimited architectural arsenal.
Versatile thinking and acting, for dancing around an issue is infinitely more effective than gaping at it.
