Project No.0378 by AIM ARCHITECTURE, is an exhibition that offers an insight into architecture, interior design, and furniture projects.
An invitation to understand the design journey, of AIM’s founders: Wendy Saunders & Vincent de Graaf.
The exhibition is inspired by buildings and their future: their ambiguity, ever changing, always questioning.
Here we celebrate their power, blurring boundaries, their disruptiveness and being the creators of social change.
Seeing buildings for what they really are: ever-evolving structures, never static. As we are.
Structures that are reprogrammed, redefined, reimagined, reinvented, reframed. As we are.
Buildings as rebels, creating new urban landscapes, creating new possibilities of use. As we do.

Our HARMAY Beijing store has been named a Gold Winner at this year’s WIN Awards in the Independent shops or small chains category!
what the judges say: this is a very strong entry with a great use of storytelling about product logistics/manufacture and display. The industrial space on the ground floor is bold and well articulated. And contrasting to the industrial ground floor, the smaller rooms in the upper level lend a variety of opulence and character. Sleek design, fun story, beautiful and exciting pods!
Bold concept executed well. Contrast between industrial and sleek is refreshing.
Quriky, unusual, interesting spaces. Great story.

Are you an architect that believes good design can change the world? Do you still get excited when seeing an amazing project, wishing you had designed that? Do You still love pushing the boundaries of our profession and don’t give up easily?
If your passion hasn’t been dampened by those difficult projects where you have poured your heart and soul in and then painstakingly never gets built… If you have experience in designing and building in China but the years haven’t beaten you down. If you are a smart and strong designer, are fast and love working on different scales of design and know that concepts and details are equally important…
Then YOU are whom we are looking for!
We are a multidisciplinary office where AIM-ers are a handful of idealists who manage to strike the balance between satisfying our clients and satisfying our own design vision. How do we do this?
We put things into context: it’s surrounding and its purpose and in the context of what we want to say with it – resulting in a unique range of projects.
We also try to do the right things – not only BIG things but the right things. We approach design with authenticity and honesty and a touch of grit. This has been our mission from day one and we expect our designers’ work etiquette and attitude to be the same.
We believe that always thinking in the context of people and places, some of the compromises that have to be made are merely solutions leading to unexpected outcomes.
If this sounds like the kind of environment you would like to be part of and help build then send your cv to:
we are looking for :
Studio Manager with 15+ years of experience
Senior Architects/Interior Designers with a minimum of 6 years experience
Junior Architects/Interior Designers with a minimum of 3 years experience
Humphrey (aka AIM office cutie pie) is waiting for you =]

2020 has arrived, not just an amazing number but the beginning of a new decade, the year of the smallest creature on the Chinese zodiac – and also the year where AIM turns 15 years old.
But for now we are just saying goodbye to the year of the pig with gratitude, to our clients, our team, our family and friends. Wishing you all a fabulous Rat Year ahead with a few glimpses of what we have been busy with these last 12 months.
