In 2017, DTI Group embarked on a major renovation of their offices in Wijk en Aalburg, The Netherlands, tapping the Amsterdam design studio VEVS to handle the project.

The studio’s comprehensive plan reimagined the original structure—a non-descript 1990s building—with an innovative and contemporary design that thoughtfully integrates the indoors and out. Because DTI specializes in dairy and dough products, VEVS looked to the Dutch countryside dotted with barns and parcels of land for inspiration.
