We are a Rotterdam-based architecture, development, and urban-research firm. Personal Architecture (P·A) initiates, designs, and manages the construction of bold and imaginative buildings.
P·A's work sits at the crossroads of design (architecture), development (initialization, investment, and construction management) and research (knowledge of the people, places, and market we create for). From initial concept to construction, through to occupation and use, we engage clients in a constant dialogue to clarify priorities and develop future-proof, cost-effective, and inspiring spaces.
Looking beyond the brief, we aim to create spaces that not only meet current needs but have a lasting impact and improve quality of life at multiple scales. To this end, there are few design challenges and building types we won’t take on. However, integral to every initiative we undertake is not the kind or size of building, its use, or its scope, but rather the client's ambition to create a truly exceptional project that serves its people and its place.
P·A strategizes alongside clients to explore how buildings can be used, reused, shared, and maintained. With over ten years of demonstrated design and construction management experience, and a vetted contractor network, we ask the right questions at the right time and ensure an efficient and well-orchestrated design and construction process.
