The core activities of Erick van Egeraats practices consist of design and research assignments (all standard activities from design to execution), providing advice in the field of architecture, urbanism, interior and product design. Erick van Egeraat and his practice strive for an evoking and engaging projects. ‘’Our aim is not to state but to relate; not to consider but to seduce; not to irritate but to persuade and surprise - to create a place of beauty.’’ The designs are not necessarily defined by a style, but rather by a thorough development and materialization of the projects. The essence of the assignment in coherence with de context of the urban environment forms the backbone of the design process. This process is completed with the development of fully integrated mechanical, electrical and structural solutions.
Each assignment is considered to be a unique opportunity to realize an exclusive and unique project. Program and context are the prevailing inspirations in the design. Erick van Egeraat denies looking for a uniform style of his projects and looks for contemporary design that speaks to the imagination and can involve people emotionally.
The ambition of the architect alone can never be sufficient to realize a good durable project. An assignment can only be fulfilled with the right value when client, architect and consultants are fully involved in the process from the initial design stage with enthusiasm and thoroughness.
