Director and Founder of Rients Ltd, Rients Bruinsma’s signature style is classic, yet contemporary. Working on a rich portfolio of high-end residential and commercial projects over the past 15 years, Rients has developed a base of global clients whom he and his team work with time and time again.
After studying Interior Architecture at the Academy of Visual Arts in Maastricht, Rients Bruinsma began his career in Paris, working as an apprentice to Jean Willmotte. Experiencing the rich tradition of French design and inspired by the variety of projects he had worked on, Rients then moved to New York to further his experience.
Here, he worked for Peter Marino Architects on projects such as the Presidential Suite of the Four Seasons Hotel. Rients then moved to London in 2002 to join John Stefanidis. He later set up his own practice in 2003.
Working on projects that span the globe, the Rients team offers a wide range of services from architecture, interior design and bespoke furniture solutions.
From excavating basement spaces, to interior planning and preparing tender packages, they partner with their clients to fulfil any design practice required whether making a space a home, or creating unique commercial environments.
