interior of office at the carnegielaan The Hague

The collaboration between the two partners of the firm dates back to 1998. Jeen Pot and Jos van Heerde started studying architecture at the Hanzehogeschool in Groningen. Knowing how to make a building is an important element to good architecture. In 2004 TU Delft was a logical next step to actually design good architecture.

In 2007 they wrote the graduation thesis "Dynamic architecture on the Dutch coastline" together after which they both graduated cum laude in 2007.

Since 2018, the two have established themselves under the name J2Creators.

The firm works from The Hague with a young creative team of architects, engineers and interior designers with one goal: to create a harmonious total design with an appropriate balance between emotion and function.

New designs do not come from the drawing board. It are thoughts; originated from a play of facts, opinions, experiences, wishes and desires. Attentively listening to map these thoughts is therefore the basis of every design. This results in a combination of high-end architecture, interior and furniture in both non-residential construction and residential construction that ensures high quality buildings and design.
