Mecanoo is a Dutch architecture firm based in Delft, founded in 1984 by Francine Houben, Henk Döll, Roelf Steenhuis, Erick van Egeraat and Chris de Weijer.
The firm is directed by its original founding architect and creative director Francine M. J. Houben alongside partners Aart Fransen, Francesco Veenstra, Ellen van der Wal, Paul Ketelaars and Dick van Gameren. The firm’s designs include technical, human and playful aspects. Mecanoo combines the disciplines of architecture, urban planning and landscape architecture in a sometimes unorthodox way and with sensitivity for light. Each project is approached in terms of context and how it relates to the larger urban and social fabric; how it impacts the environment and the beauty of place.
