Ard Hoksbergen

Ard Hoksbergen (Rotterdam, 1981) studied architecture at the Academy of Architecture in Amsterdam. He won the prestigious Archiprix in 2012 with his graduation project "De Kartuize van Tubbergen", after which he established himself as an independent architect.

Since then, he has worked in varying collaborations on various projects, with a focus on medium-sized housing projects and school construction. The integral designs of Studio Ard Hoksbergen are contemporary and timeless at the same time. They are characterized by simplicity and craftsmanship, and leave room for the unknown and thus for the future.

Designs are developed and elaborated in a small close-knit team, using sketches, models, drawings and BIM models. They work closely with people who want to use their knowledge to work on innovative solutions. Studio Ard Hoksbergen always strives for the best answer to the question. Each design is a self-evident solution that fits the location, program, budget and wishes of users and clients. Every project gets the attention it needs. For example, they enjoy working on beautiful projects where users walk around with a happy smile. Studio Ard Hoksbergen is located in the former Hendrick De Keijserschool in Amsterdam West.

Albert Herder, Vincent van der Klei, Arie van der Neut, Metin van Zijl. Studioninedots

Studioninedots was established in 2011 by Albert Herder, Vincent van der Klei, Arie van der Neut and Metin van Zijl as an architecture and urban design practice whose work extends from housing to urban concepts. Their practice excels in projects that transform complex urban sites, interweaving the built environment with the social fabric of a city. They are fascinated by the processes of (re)using or activating these sites; their dynamic contexts often demand unconventional solutions yet inspire new collective ways of living.

When facing urban challenges, they identify opportunities in circularity and, at the same time, embrace beauty and tactility as essential human needs. They team up: they adopt a collaborative approach that inspires, challenges and strengthens our work. Together with their clients and partners, they translate forward-thinking ideas and designs into a realistic framework, creating characteristic spaces that function as catalysts for meeting, exchange and connection.

Studioninedots is a multidisciplinary design practice with professionals working across architecture, interiors and urban planning. Studioninedots is based in Amsterdam, a city that inspires their with its open-mindedness, adaptability and creativity. With this in mind they initiated the Creative Workspace 1-1-1 in the former Stork factory building located along the Gedempt Hamerkanaal in Amsterdam’s north. It has an unfinished quality like its surroundings, thrives in its temporality, balances between rawness and comfort and has an element of unpredictability in its use: Studioninedots own WeSpace.
