The work of Neutelings Riedijk Architects has been characterized as having a sculptural, often anthropomorphic quality and a playfulness of form while following a clear rationality in programming and context.[1] Their use of familiar forms and materials grounds the strangeness and baroque involutions that give the works a distinct identity and power.[2] Because of the public nature of most of their work, Neutelings Riedijk see the sculptural quality as a way to communicate the building's role within its urban or social context.[3] The firm has established itself as a leading international practice, specializing in the design of complex projects for public, commercial and cultural buildings.

Neutelings Riedijk Architects' earlier work consists mostly of public housing and utilitarian buildings such as office buildings, fire stations, and hotels. They have since moved on to designing complex assignments for public and cultural institutions such as museums, libraries, performing arts venues, concert halls, and educational facilities.[4] Their most acclaimed buildings are the Museum aan de Stroom in Antwerp (2010), the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum (2006), the Shipping and Transport College in Rotterdam (2005), and the recently realized culturehouses Rozet in Arnhem (2013) and Eemhuis in Amersfoort (2013).
