Neutelings Riedijk Architects is a leading international architectural practice based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. We offer a strong commitment to design excellence: realizing high quality architecture through the development of powerful and innovative concepts into clear built form.
Neutelings Riedijk Architects is specialized in the design of complex projects for public, commercial and cultural buildings. We have designed and built theatres, city halls, museums, libraries, hotels, schools, office buildings and mixed-use developments. We have wide experience in balancing the complex functions and logistics of these projects with their often delicate and urban contexts to give them the iconic significance in the public realm that their clients desire.
In our belief, contemporary ornamentation results in buildings with a powerful expression that create new local identities in a globalized world. In 2018 we published the book ‘Ornament & Identity’, a multi-layered essay that presents the results of our search for expression and identity through a selection of thirty-six of our projects.
Neutelings Riedijk Architects was founded in 1992 by Willem Jan Neutelings and Michiel Riedijk. Since 2020 the office is led by principal architect Michiel Riedijk and managing director Carl Meeusen.
We have an international team of talented, highly educated and motivated architects. 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.
