V8 Architects consists of a team of highly qualified and motivated architects and designers. In dialogue with consultants and our clients we come up with resourceful solutions for existing and new buildings. Strong interventions that are put together with care and precision and that make a valuable contribution to their surroundings and users.

Rudolph Eilander
founding partner
Pragmatic in his pursuit of maximum value. An architect who boldly highlights the hidden ambitions of a project.
Michiel Raaphorst
founding partner
Intuition and a healthy desire for perfection. The synergy and energy of collaboration are the fuel, powerful solutions the result.
David Spierings
associate architect
Feels right at home in a site hut and a virtual 3D environment. Expert in the field of complex geometries and uncompromising when it comes to quality.
Taro Yoshikawa
project director
Project director with a healthy pursuit of perfection. For Taro construction is the best thing there is. But it should be beautiful.
Suzanne van Essen
manager business development & PR
Suzanne knows how to kick-start the engine and the ins and outs of efficient publicity. Always looking for opportunities and capable of reading between the lines.
Emilia Serowiec
architect / 3D visualizer
Mistress of the image. Our expert in visualizations but also wears a hard hat. And Emilia, alone among our petrolheads, also dons a motocross helmet at weekends.
Niels Roodbergen
Thorough knowledge of the discipline in all its varied aspects. With Niels’ technical expertise he translates the archetypical aspect of architecture into beautiful buildings.
Jeroen van Rijen
technical designer / project leader
Architecture is a profession. And for Jeroen it’s the best profession in the world, but without passion and perseverance it becomes mediocre. And that is not the intention.
Martine Baltje
office manager
Every office needs the perfect manager. We’re lucky to have the best: Martine. Knows everything and often well in advance.
Frank Huibers
senior architect
You have experience, you have yet more experience, and then you have Frank. Right at home at V8 to mentor colleagues while also realizing very fine buildings.
Kelly Otter
She is proof that architecture is tremendously multifaceted. Kelly reminds us that you can only make fantastic projects if you work in a great team.
Bob Robertus
Bob has the ability to design on the basis of associations. This is important because it brings out the somewhat intangible aspect that is so crucial in our work.
Egle Kalonaityte
A M B I T I O N. Wonderful isn’t it? Egle wants to build only the very best buildings. Which is fine because that’s exactly what we want to give our clients.
Frank de Vleeschhouwer
A total ‘professional freak’, in the very best sense of the term. Busy with architecture 24/7 and in-between has time for all manner of other things.
Jekaterina Balyšuk
We may not be Hotel California, but it seems that Jekaterina never checked out. Started out as trainee, continued as freelancer and now, back in her place as junior architect.
Martine Duyvis
After her studies, Martine jumped into the deep with Villa K6, then bathed in Japanese architecture on the other side of the lake for a while and now feels like a fish in the water back at V8.
Aistė Rakauskaitė
Aistė being Lithuanian makes it three-of-kind in the V8 office. Unfortunately, none of them plays basketball but of course in architecture they excel! And after her internship with us she will have accelerated this even more.
Ivan Pashov
Number one coffee consumer, but always in style. AutoCAD-pro since kindergarden.
Maarten Menssink
Fresh addition to the V8 team with an unrestrained curiosity about all facets of our beautiful profession. With still a few more years ahead of him, we are confident that he will bring it to a good end. But first... gain some 'solid', 'sound', V8 work experience!
