Urbis was founded in 1987 by Donald Lambert. Since then, Urbis has worked on a constant stream of commissions, with an emphasis on changes in the existing city. This is now an impressive list of more than 500 projects, from small-scale urban development to regional area visions. In 1992, Urbis associated itself with Kraaijvanger Architects to form the office for architecture and urban design, Kraaijvanger • Urbis. After 15 years of intensive cooperation, the entire urban design department has continued independently under the name Urbis, bureau for urban design. Petra Sala joined as a partner in 2008, followed by Audrey Coert in 2021. Donald, Petra and Audrey are the directors of the Urbis team,consisting of urban developers, technical designers and landscape designers. Since 2016 we are located in the historical monument of the Heineken Brewery Office in Rotterdam.
