Desk Maxim Winkelaar

Maxim Winkelaar Architects offer a total solution in the field of building and remodeling with various activities such as designing new homes, renovation and construction, decoration and interior design. We also deal with environmental permit applications and amendments to the planning by municipalities. As consultants we can offer expert advice to home buyers with explanations of conversion options and an indication of additional costs before embarking on a project or prior to purchasing a house. In addition to working in The Netherlands we have international experience in Belgium, Switzerland, France, England, Ibiza (Spain) and Aruba.

We find the environment important and we keep us active in the aspect of sustainability. We also noticed that our clients want to do more and more with sustainability.
Sustainability is nowadays no longer an additional feature, it is necessary to take it directly in the design process as well as durability aspects such as the implementation of heating pumps, sun collector panels and durable building materials. In addition to making a good design, expert guidance and understanding of materials, we have the right knowledge in the field of building regulations.

About Maxim Winkelaar.
Maxim Winkelaar is responsible architect and the direct contact for the client. At a young age Maxim Winkelaar was interested in old buildings. Not for nothing that during his engineering studies he also studied architectural history and history of arts. This combination of studies and his work experience adds value for seeing (cultural-historical) qualities and possibilities of existing buildings. There are many (old) buildings of which the construction is still valuable enough to be re-used.

Maxim Winkelaar strongly supports to re-use buildings of which the construction is still of good quality. Often there is more possible than you think in designing leaving surprising spaces and practically usable buildings. Aspects such as energy saving and use of sustainable materials are included in our designs.
