The ensemble of four buildings, inspired by Italian palazzos, borders the new park Somerlust and offers a view over the river Amstel. The new residential building offers space for 59 homes consisting of maisonettes, apartments, and penthouses.
This project is a collaboration with AM (part of BAM).
A retail space of approximately 1,100 m² will be built on the Kalverstraat on the ground floor, basement and first floor. With a facade that respects the historical proportions. On the parallel street, the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal, an inviting office entrance is being created, which leads to the redeveloped upper floors and new office spaces on the second and third floors on the Kalverstraat side.

With the departure of Kirsten Hannema after Yearbook 2020 / 2021, a place became available for Uri Gilad in the independent editorial team consisting of Teun van den Ende and Arna Mačkić.
The editors select special projects completed in the past year and describe the most important developments that influence Dutch architecture. The editors are already preparing for the 35th edition, which will be published in May 2022 by nai010 publishers.
“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.
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.

Together with Bedaux de Brouwer, Korthtielens and Marcel Lok, Office Winhov works on the design of 14 urban villas in Elzenhagen, Amsterdam North. Commissioned by AM.
The construction of the National Holocaust Museum, in the former theatre Hollandsche Schouwburg and the Hervormde Kweekschool [Reformed Nursery School], has begun. At the beginning of September, the first work becomes visible with partial removal and renovation of the facade. Impression: Abstract reconstructions of the facades of the Hervormde Kweekschool and the new entrance building at Plantage Middenlaan, Amsterdam.
Press Release (in Dutch)
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.

As of 1 January 2021, Uri, in addition to his daily work for Office Winhov, will hold the position of architect-member of the Committee on Spatial Quality in Amsterdam. The Committee on Spatial Quality advises the city of Amsterdam on the integral quality of the physical living environment. Three area-oriented subcommittees (Committee 1, 2 and 3) advise on applications for building permits. Uri Gilad is a member of Committee 1, which covers the city center of Amsterdam.
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.

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.
"What has been sealed in recent years has been opened up again and nuanced, the glass facade shines and splatters like before."
