Rob Driessen and Waardewerk Partnership have moved! Our new location is the Amsterdam Olympic Stadium, a historical landmark designed by Jan Wils for the 1928 Olympic games. This iconic building fits in perfectly with my specialism of 20th century applied arts & design. Waardewerk feels right at home as well, since in this partnership Erik Paol and I focus on appraisals and advice in the field of art and cultural heritage.
