Abel van Unen


Abel’s interest in architecture developed during his undergraduate studies in Architectural Design at the Hogeschool of Utrecht. This led him to TU Delft, where he completed a Master’s degree in Architecture in 2015. He took up employment shortly after with building contractor Coen Hagedoorn, but the architectural specialisation continued to beckon.

In 2016, Abel commenced a role as Architectural Designer for Team V, collaborating on design competitions. His enjoyment in this role encouraged him to continue studying and in 2019 Abel graduated with a major in Heritage & Architecture. His thesis focused on converting an historic grenade factory into a mixed-use building including a sports centre, public swimming pool and housing. Luckily, he returned to Team V after completing his studies. Abel is currently working on various projects in the port of Scheveningen.

Abel started the Professional Experience Period (PEP) in 2020 which he enthusiastically completed in 2022.
