Bas ten Brinke

The international team of 70F is led by senior architect Bas ten Brinke (Amsterdam, 1972). Ten Brinke studied architecture at the Technical University of Eindhoven and graduated in 1995 with a 9 for his final project. At the age of 23 he started his own architectural firm that four years later became 70F.

Ten Brinkes ambition is reflected in his designs. He is constantly looking for strong construction and design solutions with which he can accomplish the wishes of his client within the (sometimes limited) budget. His style is progressive, minimalist and straightforward.


70F architecture

70F architecture is a progressive architectural firm that is primarily engaged in residential and commercial buildings. The signature of 70F is best described as spartan hyper-modernism. The designs are functional and the use of material is tough and rugged. The atmosphere is bright and orderly, without compromising.

70F has won several awards, including the World Architecture Festival in 2008. Her designs were published in over one hundred media in more than fifty countries.

70F was founded by Bas ten Brinke and Carina Nilsson. In 2013 they decided to further their architecture careers separately. Carina Nilsson is currently working as an architect in Scandinavia. Bas ten Brinke stayed on as CEO at 70F.
