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.

Read this interview with mayor Aboutaleb on the energy transition in Rotterdam posted in AD Rotterdams Dagblad. Attached to the article you will find a piece on the launch of Zon in de Stad (dutch only). Aboutaleb underlines the importance of awareness when it comes to (solar) energy!

"Inwoners zijn er nauwelijks mee bezig, terwijl het stadsbestuur ambitieuze én dure plannen heeft voor de energietransitie van Rotterdam. Burgemeester Ahmed Aboutaleb: "Als we economisch willen winnen, móeten we voorop lopen.''

first solar badge placed

Posted by Personal Architecture on Saturday, 7 July 2018

On Friday the 6th of July, the Rotterdam alderman for energy transition Arno Bonte placed the first solar badge! He was just one day in office and immediately found the time to support our initiative Zon in de Stad.

Zon in de Stad aims to spread the use of solar power in Rotterdam. This summer, we will install solar shields at the doorposts of Rotterdam residents that own solar panels.
The solar shields create awareness and enable neighbours to connect and get first-hand information on solar energy.

Zon in de Stad is an initiative of Climate Focus, Personal Architecture and HilgersomDeen duurzaam, supported by the City of Rotterdam and the Province of South Holland.
