Our mission is to create vital buildings:
buildings that move, motivate and activate people.
We design bold, original, and highly functional spaces.
Always working from the perspective of our clients and end-users. 
As architecture is not about buildings, but about people.
Welcome to P·A. We are looking forward to getting to know you!



P·A at the rotterdamse dakendagen


At the Rotterdamse Dakendagen Jip promoted one of our projects 'Zon in de Stad' at the info market in the brand new 'Luchtpark' on top of the Hofbogen.

Zon in de Stad is a project we initiated together with Climate Focus and HilgersomDeen Duurzaam. Our goal is to promote solar panels in Rotterdam, starting in our neighbourhood Middelland, and to make solar energy accessible for all in a fun way.

This week, Ellen and Juliette visited one of our building sites in The Hague to check out the immense stairs being installed. The staircase was prefabricated, hoisted over the building, and is now being hauled in piece by piece by the true craftsman of Volders smederij & constructiebedrijf - really spectacular!

The early twentieth-century house is transformed into the dream house of our ambitious clients. We proposed a series of bold interventions - including this eye-catching staircase.

van alen workshop

On Friday and Saturday, Jip Pijs and Sander van Schaik joined the members of the international council of the Van Alen Institute on their two-day design charette exploring different sites in Rotterdam Zuid. The Van Alen Institute is a New York-based architectural design center that investigates the pressing urban challenges of tomorrow on a global scale.

It was great to exchange ideas with this diverse group of reputable designers and other experts from New York, London, Stockholm and beyond. We thank the Van Alen and AIR Rotterdam for hosting this event and inviting us!
