About Zantos

ZANTOS was founded in 2000 by Ernst Jan Zantingh.

With more than 20 years of experience in building management, design, furnishing and decoration. ZANTOS brings a unique sophistication to projects in Amsterdam, London, Dubai, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Monaco, and the French Riviera.

The company started out by designing large corporate offices before becoming an expert in the design and decoration of interiors and exteriors of residential projects as well.

Many of our clients seek ‘turn-key’ delivery, therefore projects are taken right from concept to completion. Ernst Jan personally supervises all phases from beginning to end.

The key steps of the process are:

First we begin by having a meeting. Initial meetings allow for a complete understanding of clients’ ideas, needs and budget. Preliminary contracts are established at this stage and flexible payment options are explored.

After the meeting we move on to the planning phase. A roadmap is created to achieve clients’ wishes within budget. By creating a plan and 3D images of the site and a detailed layout of the interior and exterior design (including the required building materials, furnishing, decoration considerations), a solid foundation on which to deliver each project is established.

Then, the plans are presented to the client for agreement, the final contract is sealed and the budget is agreed on. Construction begins shortly after, when detailed drawings are finalised. ZANTOS oversees and manages all project construction phases.

Finally, as we complete the project, all finishing touches are added in with the clients approval in order to deliver a space tailored to all needs.

Our team

Today we’re very proud to say that Zantos is a family owned business with an international network of highly skilled professionals. Management and the overseeing of major processes are mainly done by ourselves to protect quality and delivery.
