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.
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.

As this unprecedented year comes to an end, we give thanks to our remarkable team, who in spite of 2020’s challenges were resilient and agile. We are proud that despite this demanding year our ongoing projects were successfully delivered and new ones were started. To show our gratitude we asked Myrsini Alexandridi – a former team member at Office Winhov – to make a collage of our most prominent projects in 2020 and then to translate this collage into 25 of her handcrafted ceramic tiles. One tile for each team member. Just as each individual tile constitutes to the whole image, our projects are only made possible through teamwork. “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” Thank you Myrsini Alexandridi for this beautiful interpretation of our projects from 2020!
We would also like to take this space to thank our clients and those that we had the opportunity to work with this year. We are grateful for these outstanding collaborations. Finally, thank you to our digital network for following, appreciating and sharing our projects. We will be happy to keep you informed next year.
Season’s greetings from the Office Winhov team, and we hope to see you all in good health in 2021!

Exactly 25 years after the opening of the Erasmus Bridge, Rotterdam is taking another giant leap in its southern district. The construction of the Erasmus Bridge was the first step to connect the two separate city areas via Kop van Zuid. An equally impressive step is now being taken with the redevelopment of the Rijnhaven and Katendrecht. RED Company has presented a spectacular development vision for the Codrico terrain, the last factory in the ‘wrist’ of Katendrecht. The Codrico factory, a site of cultural heritage and a national listed monument, is a significant marker within the Rotterdam harbor. The factory redevelopment is designed by Office Winhov together with Crimson Historians & Urbanists. The development vision is a joined effort from: RED Company, Powerhouse Company, SHoP Architect, DELVA Landscape Architecture / Urbanism, Mecanoo, DVP, George&Harrison, Build in Amsterdam, DLA Piper, Anne van der Zwaag, Mees Ruimte & Milieu BV, Crimson Historians & Urbanists and Office Winhov.
ProRail and the municipality of Nijmegen have appointed Office Winhov as architect for the transformation and western extension of Nijmegen Station. The station has a special topographical location in the moraine with a complex architectural history. The new extension must fit into the landscape and the transformation of the existing architecture must relate to the original monumentality of Cornelis Hendrik Peters and Sybold van Ravesteyn’s designs. Office Winhov is taking care of the design in close collaboration with Arcadis. The Nijmegen Station project is part of the High Frequency Railway Program and will be completed in 2028.

On Tuesday, August 20 an article about the transformation of the Trippenhuis appeared in the supplement 'V' of Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant. Only in Dutch.
Ofice Winhov was chosen by the Jewish Cultural Quarter as the architect for the definitive development of the National Holocaust Museum on the Plantage Middenlaan in Amsterdam. A major renovation will turn the current two locations of the museum, the Hollandsche Schouwburg and the Hervormde Kweekschool into a National Holocaust Museum. The permanent National Holocaust Museum is expected to open its doors in September 2022.
The large-scale renovation of the Trippenhuis complex was completed recently. The Trippenhuis was designed by Justus Vingboons and was built between 1660 and 1662 for the brothers Louis and Hendrick Trip. The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) has been housed there since 1812. The complex has been transformed over the years with various insights. The design of Office Winhov for the new reception area consists of an enfilade of rooms and halls, extending from the historic entrance in the Trippenhuis to the renovated auditorium in the garden at the rear of the complex. In the new part, colors and design motifs from the historic building return in a contemporary manner. The facades on the street side and the courtyard are clad with cast, bronze panels; a reference to the'metal trade' business of the original residents.
At the end of July The Parool published an article about the transformaton of the Trippenhuis. Attached the online article (written in Dutch).
Design proposal (runner up) by Office Winhov for the new tower to replace the original clock tower, demolished around 1980.
"What has been sealed in recent years has been opened up again and nuanced, the glass facade shines and splatters like before."

Excursion and conference in Finland from July, Friday 4 to Sunday 7 for professors of architecture and civil engineering from Germany and surrounding areas. On July, Friday 4 at 6:40 PM Jan Peter Wingender will give his lecture: "Brick Dresses and Unspoken Revolutions" at the Aalto University in Helsinki.

The Geldermalsen station is a listed monument. As part of the renovation, a new underground connection between both sides of the station is constucted. Office Winhov presented a proposal for the new entrances to the station in the form of separate canopies above the stairs, lifts and platforms with a prominent skylight as the station's new address.
The house of parlement and the senate, as well as the Ministry of General Affairs and the office of the Prime Minister of the Netherlands are based in the ‘Binnenhof' in The Hague. The Binnenhof complex is an eight-century-old monument that is continuously 'in operation'. After a period of intensive use, the buildings of the Binnenhof are facing many technical and structural defects. Large-scale renovation is necessary for improved safety measures and better (working) conditions for users and visitors. And to preserve the cultural heritage for the long term.
Office Winhov is one of the architects involved in the renovation of the Binnenhof on behalf of the Central Government Real Estate Agency.
On Monday the 29th of April, Jan Peter Wingender gives a lecture about brick architecture at the Central Government Real Estate Agency of The Netherlands.
As part of the theme 'Architecture in times of climate change', Harm Tilman of trade journal de Architect writes about the Trippenhuis as an example of a way to 'preserve, reprogram and bring an existing situation to life'.
For the Alternative History exhibition we were asked to imagine a collaboration with architects from the past. We use an historic drawing as the seed for a design presented in a physical model.

Veldwerk Architecten, Ellis Woodman of the Architecture Foundation and Niall Hobhouse of Drawing Matter work together in the organization of the Alternative History exhibition project.

Office Winhov is in charge of the transformation and renovation of the reception and public rooms, as well as the long-term vision for the restoration of the historic complex. HOEK architecture & preservation is responsible for the renovation of Kloveniersburgwal 29.
