De Zwarte Hond is a 100 staff design company for architecture, urban design and strategy, based in Groningen, Rotterdam and Cologne. We combine social engagement and craftsmanship to create high quality, precise projects that are sensitive to the context, to the users’ needs and to the visions of our clients.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Our work is based on a profound interest in the people and world around us, from residents and users to our partners. That open view is essential to see and understand interdependence. Intertwining is the soul of our working process.

We are a team of unconventional thinkers with high ambitions for design and society. We can think across all scales from a metropolis right down to an individual brick. With nine partners and a skilled, varied team, we have a broad scope of knowledge and multi-disciplinary, full-service experience. We draw on this expertise to translate any assignment, no matter how complex, into a clear intervention that makes a lasting, positive contribution to people and their living environments.
