innovative by using the familiar

allard architecture is a Dutch multidisciplinary office practicing contemporary architecture, master planning and research. The office is located on Prinsengracht one of the historical canals looping the city of Amsterdam. Allard Meine Jansen founded Allard Architecture BV in 2006 after working in high profile architecture offices like Renzo Piano Building Workshop, Massimiliano Fuksas and Herman Hertzberger.


recycling buildings

allard architecture has extensive experience in the construction, transformation and renovation of historical buildings in and around the city of Amsterdam. Of most importance is shaping identities, finding inspiration in cultural influences and natural proportions. While the office arrives at innovative shapes and designs, it never strays from these founding principles.


revitalising neglected areas

allard architecture worked on a series of groundbreaking designs that include the Matchbox, the Tower Overhoeks, Het Dak, the Arnhem Kunstencluster, the Utrecht De Kade Filmhouse among others. The office works in close collaboration with a wide network of professionals, consultants and partner architects. The office works in a thoughtful manner to ensure that the work is feasible, executed functionally, efficiently, and sustainably. Everything from the large scale planning to minute details are carefully analyzed and thought out.


recuperating living conditions

allard architecture has taken on a social responsibility, revitalizing neglected areas in the Netherlands. This is the firm’s response to the modern architectural practice of expansion through mass building.
