Principal architect Bert Bulthuis holds a Bachelor degree in Building Science and a Master degree in Architecture.

He founded Architectuurstudio SITEC in The Netherlands in 1993 and Sitec Studio, a new practice to expand on his Dutch building philosophy, in Hong Kong in 2012. Collectively, he and his team have designed and realised over 200 buildings across the two architectural practices.

The main themes of Bert’s work are: building as an existential manifesto from a circular environmental perspective; and designing from a specific situation (genus loci); and from the needs of specific end users (genus humanus).

His practices’ design specialities include: housing for special needs groups, green building, private housing and the revitalisation and redevelopment of historical buildings.

Bert works as an architect in Hong Kong on projects in Asia and in The Netherlands on projects in Europe.
