D/DOCK is a spatial and conceptual design community that aims to develop honest and effective spaces for humans, nature and society. We are a group of 70+ architects, engineers, designers, psychologists, project managers and developers who design for the human scale, from the inside out. Last year we found our new home in the Amsterdam Houthavens where we have transformed an old sawmill into a conscious business community – DB55.
