Wingender Hovenier Architecten designs buildings and urban development ensembles for varied uses. Working with a compact team, Joost Hovenier and Jan Peter Wingender have made designs in the Netherlands and abroad since 1995. The firm also conducts spatial and programmatic research and is involved in architectural education.
Durable, usable buildings that are firmly anchored in their surroundings are what Wingender Hovenier Architecten is all about. A good building lasts a long time. The firm therefore pays a great deal of attention to robust materialization and meticulous detailing, so that a building can favourably pass the test of time.
Making a building requires stamina. Ideas need the stubbornness of the design and building process to ultimately become good buildings. Wingender Hovenier Architecten stays involved from design to completion. Collaboration is of first importance here,
for a building is much more than the first sketch at the end. Notes on a conversation with J.W. Hovenier and J.P Wingender >
