Festive opening of Amsterdam Amstel Station on 28 October

“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.

Office Winhov is working on the design of a new residential tower at the Europaplein in Maastricht

These are several 3D printed variations, with which the first sketches are made. The tower will be experienced in a pleasant way from all sides and from all perspectives. That is why the tower will not have a front, back or side. And in terms of appearance and materials, it will have the elegant and material appearance that belongs to Maastricht.

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.

Thank you!

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!

Development vision for Codricoterrein Rotterdam adopted by the Municipality of Rotterdam

Development vision for Codricoterrein Rotterdam adopted by the Municipality of Rotterdam

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.

Office Winhov is chosen for transformation and extension Nijmegen railway station

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. Photo: Collectie Spoorwegmuseum
