About Powerhouse Company
We are an award-winning architecture office based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Founded in 2005, we have grown into a multidisciplinary office of around 100 professionals, with international studios in Beijing, Oslo and Munich. Along the way we have won a number of prizes, including the Dutch Design Award, the Maaskant Prize and the World Architecture Festival Award. Today we are led by founder Nanne de Ru along with Stijn Kemper (Rotterdam/Beijing), Stefan Prins, Paul Stavert, Sander Apperlo (Munich) and Johanne Borthne (Oslo).
Our mission is to give meaning to space through profound form and function. Our multi-disciplinary team and collaborative ethos allow us to take full responsibility for any project, from sketch to construction. We pride ourselves on the sensorial richness of our work, which results from our constant search for the sweet spot between constraints and possibilities. This process enables us to make conscious design decisions that enhance the subconscious design experience.Bezoek website
