Naomi Schiphorst is a Scheveningen based architect, living and working in the Netherlands. As a designer she is specialised in smart environments – interiors, buildings, streets, cities – which encourage interactions, using a context sensitive approach.
After graduating from the TUDelft in 2002, Naomi has gained experience as a project architect in several medium and large sized Dutch architecture offices. Projects vary from high-schools to headquarters, from concept to realisation. Focussing on designing transformations, adaptive re-use, redevelopments and urban infill projects, her main fascination lies in the way people together shape their environment, and then the environment shapes people. Since 2017 Naomi works on the design and development of a Smart City Infrastructure for the municipality of The Hague. In this Living Lab Scheveningen the city is exploring how to develop an open eco-system for co-creation of new services and applications by actually building it. How can we re-create our surroundings and interaction to make us healthier and less likely to drop litter, enhance nature, decrease our perception of noise and enable us to reach our destinations more quickly?
As an architect Naomi is connecting spatial (urban) design and technology while creating value for citizens, companies and organisations all working in the public realm. Looking for the cross-realm benefit require a true open mind and creative solutions.
