Architecture is not about buildings, but about people.

At Personal Architecture, our mission is to create vital buildings that move, motivate and activate. We do this by crafting designs that are not only bold, original, and functional, but are driven by the unique perspective and experience of our clients and end-users.

When Personal Architecture first embarked on the virtual world four years ago, we began with a very rudimentary set up of cardboard glasses and a mobile phone insert.

Fast forward to the present and we’ve moved far beyond cardboard goggles to HTC Vive virtual reality technology. We discovered along the way that VR is a powerful tool not only in presenting designs to clients but in developing the design alongside them, and the wider consultant team. We now test different design options, lighting, and installation integration. It’s become more and more clear that this tool is significantly impacting how we design, and the quality of the experience we can offer our clients.


The municipality of Weert has selected Personal Architecture, NOHNIK architecture and landscapes and Lara Voerman Architectuurhistoricus for the vision and the design for the redevelopment of Weert’s central park. The city council of Weert has unanimously adopted the vision on the park. It is a follow up on our ‘Weerbaar Weert’ research project.

Located in the center of the park, the Nijenborgh castle is a historic focal point for the city. The project group worked alongside Weert stakeholders to craft a vision for the redesign. The core of this vision is making the historic structure of the castle legible, improving connections between the park and the city center, and enriching its green qualities.



Jip Pijs of Personal Architecture was one of the chairman of the Rotterdam children's climate tables, who came together to tackle climate change in Rotterdam. This intrepid group of kids designed a sustainable Goudsesingel. If they have anything to do with it, the 'street of the future' is car-free with loads of green space and water, to skate through, play in and bike around.

The morning was organized by Archiklas. After the design sessions, the kids presented their work to the Rotterdam Alderman for Sustainability, Arno Bonte, and chairman of the climate table 'built environment,' Alex Moret. They received a lot of good ideas and inspiration from this group of young Rotterdammers. Let's help turn them into a reality!
