Possibilities to create future-proof living environments
ROP Architects is a cross-cultural architectural practice with offices in Rotterdam and Istanbul. The practice was established by a group of international partners united by a shared passion for developing high-performance architecture through advanced design processes.
Our motto, ‘research of possibilities’, embodies our working methodology, which is characterised by knowledge-driven processes and a meticulous, inventive approach to developing future-proof living environments.
We aim to build designs that answer the user’s needs in a clear and meaningful way – that are, in other words, fit for purpose. This, combined with a strong understanding of the specific context, elevates the potential of a design beyond the scope of the building, creating environments that respond to people and enhance the cities in which they live. Our mixed-cultural background allows us to adapt to challenging situations by exchanging design knowledge beyond borders.

Wherever possible, our projects implement the latest design technology, such as BIM, to optimise the quality, efficiency and accuracy of individual processes as well as of the wider project.
In our office BIM is not just a tool, its a way of thinking
What you make is determined by how you make it
Our collaborative and systematic approach has resulted in a diverse portfolio comprising master planning, housing development, work-space design and complex mixed-use buildings. Over time, we have established a network of designers, specialists and engineers able to manage challenging projects on different scales and at various design stages.
