LENS°ASS
& collect
Bart Lens (°1959) obtained his diploma from the Provinciaal Hoger Architectuur Instituut in 1982. After carrying out an internship with Jo Spaas at St-Huybrechts Lille he gained professional experience working for several different architects such as M. Jaspers and the Headquarters of the Kredietbank Real Estate Division. In 1995 he he started up his own business in Hasselt called LENS°ASS. The designs bear witness to a pragmatic realistic approach to building assignments. Ambiance that is not a result of decorating and adding accessories, but ambiance that is an actual part of the ensemble of the architecture. In 2007 he opened his second office in Brussels.
