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!
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."
steel production for tower
Last week, we visited Heijkon Staalwerken to film the production of the steel for the tower at the Natuurpodium Brabantse Wal and Stayokay Bergen Op Zoom. Very impressive to see the stairs we designed coming to life.
The Stayokay hostel & Natuurpodium opened its doors in 2015 and will now be completed with this tower! It is a sustainable and multifunctional building where nature is literally brought right in through the front door. This tower was part of our initial sketches so it is great to see it happen a few years later!
dag van de stad - 29th of october
We will be present not just once, but twice at 'Dag van de Stad' in Amersfoort on the 29th of October! We'll represent our collaborative projects Weerbaar Weert and Zon in de Stad.
Dag van de Stad is a yearly conference for Dutch city makers: policy makers, designers, investors, and active citizens.
Weerbaar Weert investigates how climate adaptation can act as a lever to improve the spatial quality of the historic city center based on cultural-historical values. We work in a team with NOHNIK architecture and landscapes and Lara Voerman in close collaboration with the Gemeente Weert.
Zon in de Stad aims to spread the joy and fun of solar power. Together with Climate Focus and HilgersomDeen duurzaam, we work on spreading this message via solar shields, solar hubs, and solar pop-up stores. Go to www.zonindestad.nl to find out more.
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."
