Hugo de Clercq and Jur­gen van der Ploeg forged a bond between Den­mark and the isle of Ter­schelling. The year was 1988, and on the deck of a sal­ing boat dur­ing the nighly watches they came to an agree­ment. Pieter Wei­j­nen, house mate and friend of Jur­gen joined in 1991. After work­ing together on the sec­ond round of a com­pe­ti­tion for Granade, we decided to con­tinue as one firm. We chose FARO as our name: short, easy and rec­og­niz­able. In 2000 Coen Kamp­stra joined. In 2010 Pieter started con­cen­trat­ing on Zwarthout and left FARO.

We now work as four archi­tects that fully share their author­ship in a joint oeu­vre. As part of our firm, many pro­fes­sion­als have shared our ent­hou­si­asm and ambi­tion over the years.

Since 1997, we’re located in a beau­ti­ful orchard between apples and pears. On the estate ‘de Olmen­horst’ we restored a potato barn from 1930 into our office. In 2018 we ope­nend a sec­ond loca­tion in Arn­hem. Our projects and clients are through­out the Nether­lands and also abroad. With this loca­tions we are close to the both in the east as in the west.
