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!
Phase I of investment property realized
P·A was commissioned by Hanna, an ambitious young woman, to restore and redevelop an early twentieth century building in Rotterdam and turn it into a long-term investment property. The five-story building, which previously housed a health clinic, will become a private residence. Phase I, the realization of Hanna’s (current) private residence, is complete.
