De Jong Gortemaker Algra is a multidisciplinary design firm with 120 employees. Architects, interior designers, structural and design engineers work on innovative architecture in project teams. De Jong Gortemaker Algra is located in the Las Palmas building on the Wilhelminapier in Rotterdam. De building was build in 1952 and was used as a storage space for the Holland America Line. Our strength lies in strong conceptual thinking and our rela- tionship and communication with the users and owners of our buildings. Trough all the years of experience we have a lot of knowledge in designing for the social sector. De Jong Gortemaker Algra beliefs that the well-being of peo- ple is strongly connected to the experience of their surround- ings. Corporate Social Responsibility is an important factor in the designing process at dJGA. In our projects as well as in the office we strive to make people aware to keep the natural environment available for future generations.de Jong Gortemaker Algra, Rotterdam
HistoryIn 1924, the young Rotterdam architect J.P.L. Hendrikswon the prestigious Prix de Rome for fine architecture. Thisbursary enabled him to spend a considerable amount of timetravelling throughout southern Europe to develop his talentsfurther. He spent four years roaming through South Tyrol andItaly with his friend Van der Sluys, sketching and studying.There is still a suitcase full of drawings of classical buildingsfrom Rome to Florence that Jan Hendriks brought back to theNetherlands. On his return, he started his own company inRotterdam. After the war, he continued this firm as a partner-ship with his brother-in-law L.A. van den Bosch. The last Rot-terdam office – after shifting location around the city varioustimes – was on the Prins Hendrikkade on the Noordereilandin the Seventies. By then the company was called HendriksCampman Tennekes Architects and also had offices in Goudaand Nijmegen. In 1980 a new office was opened in Gouda.The offices in Rotterdam and Nijmegen were then closed. InGouda, new generations succeeded one another under thenames Campman Tennekes de Jong, de Jong Gortemaker andfinally de Jong Gortemaker Algra architects and engineers. Atthe end of 2005, Architectengroep Duintjer BV in Amsterdamwas added to this. In 2007, both agencies were merged in thenew office Las Palmas in Rotterdam.
