Newfoundland was founded in 2008 in order to develop buildings of outstanding architectural quality on great sites. Cofounded by Nanne de Ru of Powerhouse Company, Newfoundland believes that exceptional architecture is the result of an integrated design proces where the site, full service ammenities and exceptional engineering and building quality all come together. Building is the result of a long journey of imagining the best possible building for a particular site. This journey is not only about dreaming, but also about reasoning and drawing, fine-tuning and optimizing.
Architecture is in the end a materialized outcome of a long proces of thinking about immaterial things: how is the light? What do I see from this room? How do we optimize the relations between inside and outside? Newfoundland aims to offer exceptional quality of space, because that is in the end where the reality of every day life unfolds.
