The firm was founded on April 1, 2001 by two partners John Kerssens and Peer de Ruiter, who met in 1993 at the academy of architecture in Amsterdam. During their studies it soon became apparent that both thought in the same way about the essence of architecture. After graduating in 2000, they decided to start Kersens | to erect the equestrian architects. The designers, project managers and draughtsmen at kerssens | the riders are all all-round professionals. In addition to solid construction and process knowledge, all employees have a preference for architecture. The goal is to realize high-quality and solid sustainable projects together with all parties.
