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!
This week our first client walked around in our design for his house with the help of real-time VR technology. We showed him some of the design changes we came up with this week.
Real-time VR technology enables us to literally walk a client through our design and guide him along the way. The realism of this experience helps to understand the consequences of the design choices much easier: you can actually see what you get before construction even starts!
FirST POP-UP STUDIO FOR #BOTUNEXT
Yesterday, we had our first pop-up studio in Bospolder-Tussendijken for #BoTuNext together with Over Morgen, Urhahn, and Inicio. In the morning we reviewed the first results of our research: sketches, interviews and data maps, and discussed what to explore further.
In the afternoon we teamed up with International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, De Delfshaven Coöperatie, and Gemeente Rotterdam to identify possible levers that can make a positive impact on the big societal and physical challenges Bospolder-Tussendijken faces.
Want to be part of the conversation? Use hashtag #BoTuNext on social media or come by the next pop-up studio at Studio Delfshaven coming Tuesday.
P·A contributes to iabr-atelier rotterdam
On June 1, 2018, the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR) will launch its eighth edition. The IABR applies this edition to the challenge brought in the Paris Agreement. The urgency to do so is clear, the question is how we are going to adjust. How can we bridge the gap between global issues and local places?
The IABR established three Rotterdam Ateliers to research this 'Missing Link'. Over Morgen, Urhahn, Inicio and P∙A will investigate how the energy transition can act as a lever to promote inclusive urban development in Bospolder-Tussendijken (BoTu). In this atelier, the IABR teamed up with housing association Havensteder, the Delfshaven Coöperatie and the City of Rotterdam. These parties have an interest in hands-on and actionable findings. Hence we will turn our IABR contribution into a concrete business case to develop Bospolder-Tussendijken.
What do our clients and partners think?
"The new design that P·A suggested was quite extreme but we haven’t regretted it for one second."
