A very welcoming review by 'The Times' whose reporter Ellen Himelfarb stayed at Pillows Grand Boutique Hotel Maurits at the Park

“A real achievement is the creation of a de facto front porch for the hotel, spilling into the park from Spring – its generous terrace and lawn lead straight to the conifer-lined bicycle paths around Oosterpark. Parakeets and magpies visit Pillows’ birdhouses hung from the plane trees towering over the guest rooms. ‘We are adding the hotel to the park,’ says Uri Gilad, the hotel’s architect. ‘Usually, it is the other way around.’ ”

Construction contract signed for the residential tower at August Allebéplein

Lieven de Key and Bot Bouw signed the contract for the residential tower at August Allebéplein. Soon housing will be there for 174 young people. Office Haratori and Office Winhov designed this sustainable 20-floor 65-metre residential tower. The design was inspired by the post-war reconstruction architecture of the surrounding neighbourhood. Focusing on forming a community, the tower features a common room on the ground floor and a communal roof terrace.

‘Relationship Therapy for Old and New Construction’ by Jan Peter Wingender

‘Relationship Therapy for Old and New Construction’ by Jan Peter Wingender

In times of sustainability, ‘demolition-new construction’ is increasingly becoming a relic from the era of waste. Transformation and reuse of existing buildings will therefore take off in a big way. Jan Peter Wingender of Office Winhov advocates ‘adaptive reuse’, an approach that goes a step further than the usual monument approach to restoration and conservation. Important premise: doubt is a faithful companion.


This article is adapted from a pre-publication of May Doubt Be Your Trusted Companion. Works on adaptive reuse by Office Winhov 2013–2023.

Construction of urban villas in Amsterdam North begins

A design for one of the new urban villas in Elzenhagen, Amsterdam North. The building is part of an urban plan for sixteen urban villas in a park landscape which calls for buildings with a sculptural quality. We are doing this by emphasizing the brickwork by using a special bond which is clearly not loadbearing. This bond is the basis for the dimensions of the villa.


Commissioned by AM
Urban planning: Municipality of Amsterdam
Landscape design: Buro Sant en Co
The other buildings are designed by Marcel Lok, Korthtielens and Bedaux de Brouwer

The exhibition 'Brick'; 10 September – 8 January

Office Winhov designed the folly 'Het Sint-Annabolwerk'. The model is on display at the ‘Brick’ exhibition, Kunsthal KAdE in Amersfoort.
 

The ‘Brick’ exhibition pays tribute to the material with work by more than fifty artists, architects, and designers from home and abroad. In new and existing work, they show the beauty and expressiveness of baked stone. ‘Brick’ can be seen from 10 September, 2022 to 8 January, 2023 in Kunsthal KAdE, the Elleboogkerk and via a tour through Amersfoort with new follies and existing buildings.

Transformation of national monument Raadhuisstraat 46–50 in Amsterdam

Transformation of national monument Raadhuisstraat 46–50 in Amsterdam

Raadhuisstraat 46–50 was built in 1906/07 following a rationalist design by architects A.J. Kropholler and J.F. Staal Jr. – two architects who have long been admired and studied by Office Winhov. The left part of the building (#48–50) was ’t Binnenhuis [‘Inside House’], a shop selling interior articles and furniture, with a warehouse, workshop and packing rooms on the upper floors. The right part (#46) had office spaces and a staff residence. The buildings were originally not connected to each other, except for a shared attic fire escape.


The national monument is due for renewal and will also be made more sustainable. The shop will remain on the ground floor and first floor. Office spaces situated on the upper floors will be modernized by Office Winhov – with unique historical elements being restored. In short, the design involves integrating these new office spaces with the larger existing ensemble.

Frederiksplein 1 is complete!

An office building originally designed by Arthur Staal has been transformed into investment firm Egeria’s Amsterdam headquarters. The office atmosphere of the 1960s served as a source of inspiration for the new interior design.

Located on the top floor topped by Staal’s expressive roof finish, the company restaurant is now a very central quiet spot – complete with large windows, terrace, and view over the square Frederiksplein.

Office Winhov designs the redevelopment of the famed IBM headquarters

The building was completed in 1976 following a design by Wout Ellerman (Lucas & Niemeijer). The former IBM office will become a future-proof office with a rich architectural history. Together with the developer, RED Company, we are aiming for WELL Platinum and BREEAM Outstanding certification for the building.


In the Schinkelkwartier in Amsterdam, RED Company will develop the Think District: a sustainable neighbourhood with space for living, working and nature. The project comprises about 1,100 homes for all target groups and two iconic office buildings in a park-like environment. The architectural firm Powerhouse Company is designing the other new office building. Landscape design by Delva.

We are going to design the new book warehouse for the Royal Library (KB) of the Netherlands!

The KB is working together with the Rijksvastgoedbedrijf ['Central Government Real Estate Agency'] on the realisation of an innovative new book warehouse, in which the national library will preserve the printed and written heritage of the Netherlands sustainably and safely for the future. The warehouse is designed by Office Winhov and will be in the Harnaschpolder in the municipality of Midden-Delfland.


Jan Peter Wingender, partner of Office Winhov, says he is honoured to be able to design the new book warehouse for the KB. “We are really looking forward to creating a design that stands the test of time and safeguards the contents of the building. In a contemporary facade, we want to express, among other things, the materiality of paper, the curves of an open book, the relief of printed matter and the mass of the stored books.'

Local Heroes •20: out now!

“In the course of the interview, it became clear that the quality of Macintosh’s built work is also indivisible from the other defining aspect of her career: her activism.”
–Anna Fawdry

 

This article forms a chapter in a series formulated to shed greater light on the practices and innovations of leading women architects. The series is the result of the conversations and collective editorial work of a group of female colleagues and friends who want to highlight the work of women heroes who inspire them. While discovering more about the œuvres and design principles of three female architects – Cini Boeri, Margaret Kropholler and Kate Macintosh – we also came to realise our true motivation behind the project was a shared desire for an increased diversity of role models.

Design housing in Stadswerven [City Yards] Dordrecht has started

De Punt [The Point] is currently being redeveloped at a unique location: near the centre of Dordrecht, across from ‘the three rivers point’ (Europe’s busiest navigable water hub), and on the edge of the large former industrial area Stadswerven (now known as ‘Sub-Area A’).


Here an ensemble of three building blocks will be built, with Office Winhov being responsible for the urban development of the full project and for the design of one of the blocks. This block consists of town houses, apartments, a commercial space, and an inner garden. Jan Peter Wingender was appointed as supervisor for De Punt’s development to ensure cohesion exists between the three blocks. The garden was designed by Diekman Landscape Architects. The client is the development grouping OCW Stadswerven.
