The place as client

Who is STIPO?

STIPO offers an open window to a better city. We’re a multidisciplinary urban development team, driven by sustainable quality and the human scale. We work on areas where users feel at home, not only today but also in five, ten or fifty years’ time. That’s how we define sustainability. 

We learn from areas that have functioned well for decades, and that’s reflected in our approach. It’s an approach where we immerse ourselves in the soul of a place to drive the process of revitalisation. We work on the human scale and quality of public space. We work on mixed areas, always adaptable to the wishes of the times. We invest in long-term quality for long-lasting cities. We promote co-ownership of their surroundings by users.

Our work is open source so we can inform and inspire others. Conversely, others also have knowledge and experience and can share this with us.
