Our Rotterdam studio is located in the central district of the pulsating harbour city. This is the base for our projects in mainland Europe. From the sixth floor of the listed Groot Handelsgebouw, an icon of post war reconstruction, a dedicated team of architects and designers gives shape to the buildings and cities of tomorrow.
We are specialists in integral design solutions in which ecology, climate adaptivity, water management, circularity and social cohesion are strongly embedded. We are passionate about creating sustainable human centred buildings and neighbourhoods in which everyone can feel comfortable, happy and at home.
