The founders of CONIX RDBM Architects can look back at a rich company history characterized by innovation, expansion and value creation. In 2013 the Antwerp based architectural offices Conix Architects and RDBM Architects & Advisors joined forces, resulting in an unified office named CONIX RDBM Architects. Managed by the architects Christine Conix, Jorden Goossenaerts and Frederik Jacobs, the team operates from offices in Antwerp, Brussels, Rotterdam and Terneuzen.
Conix Architects was founded in 1979 in Wilrijk by Christine Conix. It has grown steadily over the years ever since resulting in new offices in Antwerp (1989) and Brussels (2005). In 1996 Jorden Goossenaerts and Frederik Jacobs established AMP Architectenmaatschap. The year 2000 was marked by the acquisitions of Rienks RDBM Architects (Hulst, 1938,). In 2006 they acquired Arch-I (Berchem, 1983). That same year the company changed its name into RDBM ARCHITECTEN&ADVISEURS with offices in Antwerp (1996), Rotterdam (2006) and Terneuzen (2007).
As the result of the merger in 2013, CONIX RDBM Architects has become an important player in the Belgian and Dutch world of architecture and is active in various sectors and markets. Conix Architects already made a name through various residential and private projects and got internationally renowned due to the Belgian European Pavilion for the World Expo (2010) in Shanghai and the renovation and extension of the Brussels Atomium (2005). RDBM Architects & Advisors is well known for its expertise in social real estate and its innovative method of Risk averse building and Value-added building which has already proved its reliability for various projects in the care and educational sector. This complementarity of references, competencies and insights allows the multidisciplinary team of 65 team members to ensure an even higher quality for its clients, to realize groundbreaking projects and to further consolidate its international aspirations.
