De Zwarte Hond is an office of approximately 110 employees working from Rotterdam, Groningen and Cologne. With expertise in urbanism, architecture and spatial strategy, we add value to any assignment and to any urban-regional context, in multidisciplinary teams.

We work on a diverse portfolio of assignments, at all scales. From regional studies and strategies, through area developments, mass studies to designs for outdoor spaces around our buildings. And we do so in a comprehensive way, bringing together many societal challenges such as climate change, energy transition, housing, social cohesion, mobility transition, economic renewal and cultural heritage. For both public and private parties.

With a combination of social commitment and design expertise, we make cities and villages more vital. Both in urban planning and architecture, we can compete with the best Dutch firms, but our ambition is far-reaching and we want to grow further in the (inter)national market.
