          Loving the ordinary
          Buildings are more than singular objects; they are part of the urban environment they shape – Like a street, a district, a community. Buildings accommodate the people who use them intensively. Today, tomorrow, every day – and every year. That is why we need buildings that stand the test of time. Buildings that stay relevant thanks to their solidity, usability and durability. In that way, they are embedded in our complex, ever changing urban environment. Trends may come and go, but we love the long lasting power of the ordinary. The everyday is here to stay.


          We combine simplicity with sophistication
          Our team strongly believes in the elegance of simple solutions to complex problems, without overseeing the context in which we operate. Our thinking and designs always incorporate the environmental, social and cultural dimensions that are related to architecture and city planning. Our interest in longevity and connectivity of buildings asks for a process of careful observation, adjustment and refinement. The combination of reduction and simplicity on the one hand and enrichment and sophistication on the other hand lends additional meaning to our buildings.


          The ordinary has no boundaries
          Office Winhov started in The Netherlands, working in the tradition of the European city. We built a reputation with designs that are characterized by a careful understanding of the context and an interest in strong formal and material presence. We always aim for robust buildings that become an inextricable part of their environment and answer the varying demands of owners and users. That's how we as Office Winhov transcend our earlier boundaries. Making use of our background and experience we expand our firm’s activities. Today we design a wide range of projects, and we operate internationally. The ordinary is anything but static and placing it at the centre has brought us, and the people we commit to, further than any trend or vogue.

THE OFFICE

Office Winhov started in The Netherlands, working in the tradition of the European city. We built a reputation with designs that are characterized by a careful understanding of the context and an interest in strong formal and material presence. We always aim for robust buildings that become an inextricable part of their environment and answer the varying demands of owners and users. That's how we as Office Winhov transcend our earlier boundaries. Making use of our background and experience we expand our firm’s activities. Today we design a wide range of projects, and we operate internationally. The ordinary is anything but static and placing it at the centre has brought us, and the people we commit to, further than any trend or vogue.

PARTNERS

Uri Gilad, co-founder and partner at Office Winhov, focuses in his work on the renovation and extension of buildings of special historical significance, sustainable housing and multifunctional projects at the intersection between hospitality, culture and commerce. Uri studied at the HIT in Holon and the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture where he obtained his master degree Cum Laude. He teaches at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture and the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and he regularly lectures on the incorporation of environmental, social and cultural dimensions in relation to architecture and city planning.

Jan Peter Wingender, co-founder and partner at Office Winhov, focuses in his work on the development of complex urban ensembles, residential as well as civic building and the renovation and extension of buildings of special historical significance. Jan Peter studied at Eindhoven University of Technology and the Berlage Institute in Amsterdam. He regularly lectures and writes about architecture and is a member of various advisory and editorial committees and juries. He is frequently invited to be a guest lecturer at architecture schools in the Netherlands and abroad. From 2003 to 2007 he was head of the architecture program at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture. Jan Peter has been a lecturer at the Amsterdam University of the Arts and published in 2016 the book ‘Brick, An Exacting Material’.

Joost Hovenier was co-founder and partner of the office until he passed away in 2016. His work focused on renovations and extensions of buildings of special historical significance and on housing projects on complex sites with a particular interest in student housing and residential care. On top of that he was the editor-in-chief of ‘Local Heroes’ and lectured on architecture and the work of Office Winhov throughout Europe. Joost paid particular attention to the relationship between buildings and their place in the city in his work. The importance he placed on the robust embedding of buildings within their context found great resonance within the office and remains a central theme in our designs.
