Paulien Bremmer Architecture + Urbanism is an interdisciplinary studio working on all scales of the contemporary urban landscape.


Every project is seen as a multidisciplinary process whereby the ongoing relationship between program and context is being tested and researched. In the process of design, choices are made to develop a project which opens up new scenario's and possibilities.


Through intensive collaboration with clients, users, advisors and other stakeholders, a project is conceived as a multiple authorship resulting in a design as a precise construction of choices and ideas. Especially in the contemporary European condition where, both in architecture and planning a shift is made from a focus on the 'new' to the transformation of the 'present', the office claims a modern, innovative and critical position. A stand which is both sensitive to the past as daring towards the future.


Paulien Bremmer graduated with honourable mention at the department architecture of the Technical University in Delft (NL) and attended art school at the Rietveldacademie and the Sandberginstitute in Amsterdam. Prior to starting her own studio she worked for several offices in the Netherlands including five years as a project architect for Wiel Arets Architect and Associates. Paulien Bremmer uses her autonomous work as a breeding ground for the studio's commissioned work.
