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!
On February 21th, minister Van Engelshoven and representatives from governmental organizations singed the ‘Erfgoed Deal’ (Heritage Deal). We presented our project Weerbaar Weert to the minister and Rijksbouwmeester Alkemade and offered the minister a copy of our research.
The ‘Erfgoed Deal’ is an agreement on the use of heritage in the major spatial challenges of our time: energy and sustainability, climate adaptation, and urban growth. Weerbaar Weert is a perfect example of this approach. In the project, we took cultural historic values as the starting point for climate adaptive measures for the historic city center of Weert.
‘Weerbaar Weert’ is a project of NOHNIK architecture and landscapes, Personal Architecture and Lara Voerman for the Gemeente Weert. Weerbaar Weert was part of the 'Erfgoed en Ruimte' trajectory of the Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie and the Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed.

An article discussing the results of Weerbaar Weert appeared in the local newspaper De Limburger! (read the article here) We are excited to share the results of this collaborative research project.
Weerbaar Weert is a vision for the historic city center of Weert based on (design) research. The focus is on the opportunities that the history of the city center can offer when thinking about climate adaptive measures.
We worked in a team with NOHNIK architecture and landscapes and Architectuurhistoricus Lara Voerman in collaboration with the Gemeente Weert. The research is part of the program 'Erfgoed & Ruimte' by the Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie and the Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed.
