Neutelings Riedijk Architects was founded in 1987 by Willem Jan Neutelings and Michiel Riedijk. We offer a strong commitment to design excellence: realizing high quality architecture by developing powerful and innovative concepts into clear built form.
Over the past twenty-five years Neutelings Riedijk Architects has established itself internationally as a leading practice, specializing in the design and realization of complex projects for public, commercial and cultural buildings. We have designed and built theatres, concert halls, city halls, museums, libraries, hotels, schools and office buildings. We have wide experience in balancing the complex functions and logistics of these projects with their often delicate historical and urban contexts to give them the iconic significance in the public realm that their clients desire.
For our international projects the work force at our office in Rotterdam is complemented by technical expertise through our association with local partners specializing in architectural engineering, cost calculation and site supervision. This arrangement allows us to put together a team of specialists to meet the specific requirements of each project. This method has proved successful in fulfilling the commissions of our clients within the given time and budget.
The work of Neutelings Riedijk Architects has gained worldwide appreciation through numerous publications in the international press. The office has received awards such as the Golden Pyramid, the Belgian Building Award, the BNA-Cube and the Rotterdam-Maaskant Prize and has been shortlisted for the Mies van der Rohe Award. Its work has been selected for exhibitions in Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Venice, Beijing, São Paulo, Barcelona, Moscow and Prague, amongst others.
