Mira van Beek
ir. Senior architect Mira van Beek (1970) is member of atelier PRO's management team as of 1st January 2019.
She joined our studio in 2003 because she was attracted to the large variety in projects.
Since then she has worked on a number of urban plans, varying from a plan combining retail, housing and parking in Halsteren, to a programmatic-functional research for expansion of the shopping area in the center of Leiden. As an architect-project leader she worked on a private home in The Hague, a number of (broad) schools, multifunctional accommodations including those in Achtmaal and Krimpen aan de Lek, as well as the Nieuw Waterlandplein project in Amsterdam Noord.
Mira studied at the Delft University of Technology 1991-1997. She also studied architecture for six months at 'Arkitektskolen Aarhus' in Denmark. She did an internship at Richard Rogers in Tokyo and Geurst and Schulze in The Hague. During her studies she gave many architectural tours, including in the Hilversum town hall designed by Dudok.
After her graduation Mira worked at Bureau 5 in Maastricht for a year and then spent four years at Storrm CS in The Hague. In 2001 she won a prize in the 'De Zeven Hemels' competition with her vision on Personal Living.
With the layout of the Zeist town hall she has gained experience with custom furniture design and the New Way of Working. In 2020 Mira is engaged in the (re)design of schools and residential care architecture. Her latest project, the Hague VCL lyceum, was put into use at the beginning of December 2018.
