NIO Architects is a Rotterdam company with its roots in architecture. With a team of around eight architects led by Maurice Nio and Joan Almekinders, we work on projects involving sports and leisure, retail, infrastructure, culture and private housing. When designing buildings, we are inspired by everyday things such as music, nature and art but only rarely by architecture because this leads to more of the same. We actively strive for innovation and aim to create an inspired and inspiring environment, which generates development that is both functional and above all emotional.
Our organisational structure is simple and direct. This allows us to work in a rapid, focused and flexible way during each phase of the process. We see ourselves as architects and also as advisors with a real sense of quality and a capacity for self-reflection.
We feel responsible for our designs and we act accordingly. Even after completion, you can always contact us for aftercare and additional advice. We are an active partner in the process chain and view this as a sustainable and value-enhancing feature of our designs.
