housing subtly fitted in dune garden

Atelier PRO has been located at the Kerkhoflaan in The Hague since 1976. What star ted as a small group of enthusiastic professionals has grown over the years into an architectural office of fif ty ambitious professionals.

Due to the organic growth of the office, its accommoda tion has expanded over the years. At every extension, we were inspired by the strength of the location with respect for the dune environment. This idea of ‘genus loci’ lies at the basis of all design solutions of our archi tects. Our own office is a prime example of this.

Redesign and interior renovation of Berlage Lyceum, Amsterdam

restoring old glor y with respect for historical value

The Berlage Lyceum is a Unesco school for bilingual education (for mavo, havo, vwo and gymnasium). Free dom of thought, tolerance, appreciation, challenge, stimulating one another and world citizenship are highly valued and form par t of its DNA . The school has defined its ambition as follows: “Streng then the good things we have and surprise us with things we don’t have”.

In atelier PRO’s vision, the school’s former glor y will be restored, with respect for the historical value of the monumental elements. Through respectful interventi ons, a new, modern learning environment is created. And by making the interior contemporary, the Berlage Lyceum will have a building that matches its learning vision and identity

Internal renovation within the Meander MC

In 2021, Meander Medical Centre Amersfoort was given its own centre for oncological care, a special clinic for all oncological conditions. This brought the philosophy behind the original design of the hospital, ‘people first’, a step closer. Where previously these specialisms were scattered around the hospital, forcing patients to go to dif ferent depar tments, they are now housed in one clinic.

Atelier PRO designed the new construction and reno vation for the Allard Pierson, a monumental university knowledge and heritage institute of the University of Amsterdam. A transparent infill has been realized within the existing building lines.

With the transparent new construction made of steel and glass, this ensemble remains legible and the various heights were linked with a new facade. By connecting the new extension space with the existing spaces in the building, a more compact routing through the collection presentations has been created.

The monumental Zware Plaatwerkerij (Metal sheet factory) shipyard building in the hear t of Vlissingen, and the adjacent site, is transformed into a residential care complex with residences and public functions. The closed facades is open up through the extensive use of glass. Internally, three levels of residences were suspended like a standalone piece of furniture in the vast space. The new building beside the factory fits well in scale and appearance with the surroundings, built from yellow masonr y with a small scale corresponding to the side street. The residences are organised around a winter garden. The structure and infrastructure are especially designed to enable the dwellings to adapt to changing functions in the future.

focus on the pupils

Atelier PRO has designed a completely new learning environment, encompassing both the architecture and interiors, for the senior general (HAVO) and pre-univer sity (VWO) students at Carmel College in Raalte. The landscape design was made in collaboration with Oase Stedenbouw en Landschap urban planning consulting agency.

The challenge

The aim was to create a school that would provide over 1500 students with an intimate, comfortable atmos phere a school where students themselves are top priority. To do so, a special focus has been placed on small-scale design aspects. The result is a building with comfortable and engaging learning environments, where interior and exterior merge seamlessly with one another.

a new interior for outdated office floor

Completed in 2005, the Prinsenhof is a metropolitan, multipurpose building located in het Beatrixkwartier, The Hague. Ten years af ter the completion the original tenants lef t, relocated or downsized. Owner Bouwinvest and property manager CBRE commissioned atelier PRO to completely transform one vacant office floor in Tower C in one season, within a specified budget. The aim of the transformation was to create a modern ‘floor model’ in order to show contemporary companies how this modern space can be used.

To make use of the spatial quality of the vacant rentable floors as best as possible, atelier PRO has adapted the first layout with the clearest logistics, the best orienta tion, and the most beautiful light. With the resources that the method of Activity Based Working provided, the space is divided into several work ing and meeting spaces.


With its robust structure the PRO Table is ideal for the modern, largely paperless home and office.

‘the new world of waiting’ beside ‘the new world of working’

Atelier PRO was responsible for the renovation and res toration of the monumental par ts of the new city hall. We brought back as much as possible the old glor y of the rooms and offices in these historical par ts and have further strengthened them by creatively using color. The rooms have been carefully decorated with both antique and contemporary elements, incorporating the latest technology. These new additions fit nicely and naturally in the historical character. Our design is focused on the possibility of making choices and the extent of making adjustments. The tables can be used multi-purpose and can easily be adjusted in a large conference table set-up or divided into separate par ts for smaller conver sations. But also as a visitor you can choose options. Do you have to get your passpor t? Then you take a seat on a wooden bench. However, in preparation of a long appointment, you can withdraw into a quiet corner We have called this concept ‘The New Waiting’.

Healing Sofa

Sleeping in a hospital is not the same as sleeping at home. Especially af ter surger y or long term illness. To have someone around you whom you can trust is comforting to the patient. For this purpose atelier PRO designed a multifunctional Healing Sofa. This roomingin piece of furniture is unique in the Netherlands and has been developed in collaboration with the Meander Medical Centre. It is one of the first multi-functional pieces of furniture for professional care institutions. The Healing Sofa has combined functions of a writing desk, guest bed, sofa and table.

The manufacturer of the Healing Sofa is Keijsers Lun diform.


During the day the sofa functions as a sofa. It has been designed in such a way that it is easy to adjust, easy to manu facture and can be combined with other furniture of the patient’s room.

herinrichting financier t zichzelf door meer efficiënt ruimtegebruik

The basis of the design is formed by the culture change process of the municipality of Ede. To suppor t this pro cess, the offices of the current town hall, designed by architectural firm Broekbakema in 1977, will be redeve loped. This new interior suppor ts and strengthens the following issues: Ede’s position as a ‘Green, Sound and Active’ municipality; the core values of the organization: Confidence, Responsibility and Transparency; and the theme ‘The New World of Work’.

We have examined the existing building and the pos sibilities it of fers. Ede’s town hall is an elongated buil ding varying from 2 to 4 storeys high, and built up in 4 volumes which are interrupted by central stair wells. The routing through the existing building has been transfer red from a central passage with rooms on both sides, to open spaces with the walking route alongside the facade: an asymmetric corridor creating dif ferentiations in the area, and making it possible to have more tran quil working places at the opposite facade.

De Statie, Sas van Gent

folded volume provides public space

De Statie in Sas van Gent is a multifunctional accom modation. Besides a librar y, several community facili ties and a spor ts centre, the complex accommodates two primar y schools, a childcare centre, playgroup and municipal health ser vice (GGD), and a residential com plex of 23 apar tments.

The shape of this location is rather whimsical, and the complex responds to this shape by means of random ness and plasticity. The building cannot be sur veyed at a single glance, due to the angular rotations, overhangs and variety in sur faces.
