Maxim Winkelaar. | Design Follows Personality.

Personal architecture
A well-known expression in architecture is ‘Form Follows Function’ which means that the shape of a building should be primarily based upon its intended function or purpose. We believe in ‘Design Follows Personality‘. We create together with our clients a personally tailored design. Our architectural aim is to optimize the living and working environment therefore creating architecture that is ‘made to measure’ to the lifestyle of our customers.

Architect Maxim Winkelaar is specialized in renovation, restoration, structural alterations to existing buildings and new constructions of houses, apartments, hospitality design, historic buildings and monuments. Our work is published in the book “Reactivate! – Innovators of the Dutch architecture“.

During the past years we have designed improvements and alterations for various houses, apartments, canal dwellings, country homes and monumental buildings as well as the design of new houses; villas and water (floating) houses. In addition, Maxim Winkelaar Architects are also interior architects and have designed various ‘made to measure’ kitchens, bathrooms, private spa and health annexes, private cinema and exclusive furniture. The personal monitoring of projects from day one to completion; the continual focus on the wishes of clients in combination with the quality of our reliability and knowledge form the basis for the successful realization of our projects.

Maxim Winkelaar Architects is an international operating architecture firm. In addition to working in The Netherlands we have experience in Belgium, France, Switzerland, Ibiza (Spain), Aruba (Caribbean) and England.
