Renovation of Leiden’s City Hall has a nomination for ARC22 Detail Award

"Leiden's City Hall has been surgically restored to a design by Office Winhov. Due to the subtle interventions, it is no longer clear to the visitor where old and new meet. New interventions fit convincingly into existing architecture. The result is an un-Dutch building." –de Architect

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.'

“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.

“I often compare our job as station architects to gardening. it’s about taking the responsibility to take care of something for a longer period of time, to make step-by-step transformations as opposed to making it a huge project. And this was very unique for us,” says Office Winhov partner Jan Peter Wingender. “And it’s exactly what a building like Amstel Station deserves.”

As of 2021, the project was largely completed, but other interventions will take place in the coming years. The next large phase will involve opening up the station to create a new station hall, and face, to the west towards the Amstel River – while still maintaining the intrinsic unity.


The design for the renovated Amsterdam Amstel Station was provided by Office Winhov in collaboration with Gottlieb Paludan Architects, commissioned by Prorail, NS stations, the municipal transport company GVB and the municipality of Amsterdam.

Bucherer Flagship Store awarded among the ‘Best Buildings of the City of Zürich’

Bucherer Flagship Store awarded among the ‘Best Buildings of the City of Zürich’

The prestigious municipal architecture award of the city of Zürich, ‘Auszeichnung für gute Bauten Stadt Zürich’, is founded in 1942 and is only given away every five years for what is considered Zurich’s “most successful buildings”. The Flagship store Bucherer is among the 12 laureates build between 2016 and 2020. As Mayor Corine Mauch said during the award ceremony: “The buildings impressively present the diversity and high-quality development of Zürich.” 

The flagship store for the Swiss jeweller Bucherer, designed by Office Haratori and Office Winhov, is a renovation of the existing building from 1961. The building heads a small perimeter block on the corner of Bahnhofstrasse and the historic Kuttelgasse. The existing natural stone facade is replaced with a regular facade grid made up of angled marble elements. The recessed surfaces in the facade contain the windows for the upper floor offices. At the corner, the elements develop into bay windows, orientating the building towards the perspective of the Bahnhofstrasse. The plinth, with typical shop windows, is constructed of poured bronze elements with decorative patterning.

Nine design teams selected to make iconic city churches more sustainable

From the 37 teams that responded to the Open Call for making large city churches more sustainable, the jury has selected nine teams of professionals in the fields of design, sustainability and heritage, including team Studio LA, Bob Geldermans (TU Delft) and Office Winhov. They have been invited to participate in the competition 'Sublime Beauty | Sublime Sustainability', issued by de Rijksbouwmeester en de Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed in collaboration with nine large city churches. The teams were asked to create a vision of the task, to which three urgent themes were suggested. These themes relate to interior space, energy connections and connection to the environment. In June, the jury will select one team per theme to develop the vision into a design.

First view of our residential tower August Allebéplein in Amsterdam Nieuw-West

Office Winhov is responsible for the design of a 65m high residential tower at the August Allebéplein in Amsterdam Nieuw-West by client De Key. The tower comprises of 174 social housing apartments and is part of a new building block. The design is part of the densification of De Westelijke Tuinsteden and follows the ensemble in which the building is located through its horizontal alignment and closed parapets. The use of prefabricated concrete elements provides speed of construction and more control over the quality of construction. The outer shell of these elements also consist  of concrete, in different finishes. The load-bearing facades and core enable maximum flexibility within the interior. This flexibility of the plan ensures a long lifespan for the building. Construction will start in the third quarter of 2022.
