Mecanoo architecten, officially founded in Delft in 1984, is made up of a highly multidisciplinary staff of creative professionals from 25 countries. The team includes architects, engineers, interior designers, urban planners, landscape architects and architectural technicians.
The company is led by its original founding architect and creative director, Francine Houben, technical director Aart Fransen and financial director Peter Haasbroek, who are joined by partners Francesco Veenstra, Paul Ketelaars and Dick van Gameren.
The extensive collective experience, gained over three decades, results in designs that are realised with technical expertise and great attention to detail. Mecanoo’s projects range from single houses to complete neighbourhoods and skyscrapers, cities and polders, schools, theatres and libraries, hotels, museums, and even a chapel.
