Our office is located in the centre of the world port city of Rotterdam. Traditionally a city of national and international trade, a city with residents from around the globe. This is our home, and we share with Rotterdam the identity of our company: creative, ‘hands-on’, proactive and international. Welcome to Orange Architects!
Orange Architects is a multidisciplinary and internationally operating design firm for architecture, urban design, interiors and outdoor space, headed by Patrick Meijers and Jeroen Schipper. Both partners graduated as architects and urban designers from Eindhoven University of Technology, where their education covered the full spectrum of the design profession. The assignments tackled by Orange Architects vary from feasibility studies to complete commissions, and from general urban plans to detailed interiors. Over the past 25 years, the office has drawn up numerous designs for private and public clients, some 35 of which have been built and another 25 are in preparation or under construction.
People are the central concern in all our projects. We not only want to construct attractive buildings but also create inspiring surroundings. Pleasant places in which to live, work and relax. We believe that the big challenge and the major transition we face in the coming years is an opportunity to make sustainable, attractive and well-programmed urban landscapes. Environments that are not monofunctional and exclusive, but multifunctional and accessible to everybody.
Orange Architects formulates attractive, conceptually advanced and smart answers to complex spatial challenges. What distinguishes us is our rational attitude which we combine with a sensitivity to context, to local culture, to the client’s wishes, and to the future users of our projects. Drawing on our knowledge and expertise, Orange Architects transforms all the ideas, dreams and wishes of clients into inspiring and sustainable living environments.
