STUDIO AKKERHUIS was founded in 2014 in Paris by Bart Akkerhuis, a former associate of Renzo Piano.

Our practice works internationally as architects, interiors designers and urbanists. We engage in projects through which we can explore inventive responses to environmental, technological, cultural and social contexts. In doing so we regularly collaborate with specialists from other fields, from artists and engineers to philosophers and filmmakers.

We are represented by a young and dynamic staff of about 40 architects from 19 different countries, sharing a common passion for architecture and design. The studio is dedicated to creativity and originality while also recognising the pragmatic necessities associated with delivering design and architectural projects. From concept design to construction supervision, it is able to manage all the architectural design stages. Working as a team with our clients and consultants, we pay particular attention to detail and the development of bespoke solutions throughout a collaborative design process.

Realized and ongoing projects of the studio include the transformation of the 55 000 m² monumental ‘Meelfabriek’ into a mixed-use complex in Leiden, a contemporary art gallery in Paris, a boutique hotel and a masterplan for 750 housing units, both in the Netherlands. Furthermore, Studio Akkerhuis collaborates with Renzo Piano Building Workshop on the new Parisian Law Courts, currently under construction in Paris.

Studio Akkerhuis has won numerous awards; the Architectural Record Design Vanguard (2016) and the Innovation Award Bas Carbone at the Biennale of Bordeaux (2017) amongst others.
