Atelier PRO’s philosophy is that the quality of an environment is the basis for people to develop themselves. Therefore a major part of their portfolio consists of social property in the public domain. Atelier PRO’s view on education and health care has been translated into various schools, multifunctional accommodations and health care institutions. Their portfolio also covers cultural and public buildings such as theatres and cultural centres and other multi use projects.
Atelier PRO involvement to improve the social environment is also converted into a great interest in and affinity with renovation and re-use. Recognizing and using the unnoticed beauty of existing buildings often resulted in surprising designs. Atelier PRO highly value the historic background of the built environment and always consider what qualities should be maintained and how to create added value.
