Stagiair / intern architecture


SNITKER/BORST/ARCHITECTEN/ is a small and ambitious office, based in the centre of Amsterdam. The focus of our projects is in the field of housing and urbanism. A selection of our work is presented on our website: We are offering an internship for an enthusiastic and talented student in architecture for at least three months. In the internship we want to do research on the possibilities of CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) for the construction of Raumplan apartment buildings.

Theme 1
The Netherlands faces a paradoxical challenge: build more and emit less. To solve the housing shortage, one million homes will have to be built by 2030, but current concrete construction exceeds environmental standards. Is timber construction the solution?

Theme 2
People like high spaces in old houses. Developers nevertheless realize most new-build apartments with the standard ceiling height of 2.6 meters. The mention of a large ceiling height in a sales brochure would not sufficiently capture the imagination of potential buyers and thus would not significantly influence the price of the apartment. We have conducted a study into new possibilities for apartment buildings with variation in ceiling height: Raumplan apartment houses.

We work in an informal atmosphere. Our cad-programs are Vectorworks and Sketchup. Experience with the cad and render programs is an advantage but not required, because they are easy to learn. If you are interested, please send a letter with CV and a portfolio with images of recent work to our office.
