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!



OP DE HILL drinks!

Last Tuesday, the proud new owners of the houses in the OP DE HILL project met their future neighbors on the construction site. They had the opportunity to leave a time capsule with a message in their foundation. The content varied from children’s drawings to a personal note to the year 3000.

The OP DE HILL project was initiated in our development division and was designed by our architecture department. OP DE HILL is a small-scale new housing project in Hillegersberg, consisting of seven gasless and energy-efficient homes.

Practice what you preach - interview architectenweb


"Practice what you preach" - according to Maarten Polkamp. Read this interview by Architectenweb on the development branch of P·A and our project OP DE HILL (Dutch only).

The development division of P·A carries out real estate development projects on behalf of (private) investors as well as independently. Our focus is on the (re)development of high-quality, small-scale buildings that are carefully integrated into the urban fabric. To quote Maarten: "we develop buildings we would want to live in."
