Wijngaarde & Partners

People are more important than bricks and mortar. Wijngaarde & Partners never put buildings first. Instead, they focus on the experience of the various people who will be the future inhabitants, users, visitors, or guests. And, the surrounding areas and communities that will be affected by their projects. They are an innovative real estate development agency with an effective, evidence-based approach. Their mission is to provide a better connection between people and their ideas, wishes and dreams, by using processes of re-zoning and urban transformation, combined with iconic structural elements and creative, sustainable design solutions. This leads to unique forms of real estate development, and remarkable results. They create spaces where people thrive – where people enjoy spending their time working, living, relaxing, and experiencing life.

Being based east of Amsterdam, in the municipality of Diemen, they have extensive experience working in Amsterdam and its wider surroundings, but are also involved in several regional, national and international projects. Their projects are aligned with The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which provide a guideline to create a measurable, positive impact. Wherever Wijngaarde & Partners work, they aim to improve the quality of urban and private spaces, for all people involved – on all levels.

What makes the organisation unique?

They leave something special behind in every project. Projects must contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the United Nations. And Wijngaarde & Partners want to have a noticeable and measurable impact on the environment. In addition, they always look for an iconic element, something that lifts a project above average.

They are a company that is looking for special solutions for obsolete real estate by connecting places, people and ideas. The easiest solution is rarely the right one. They are only satisfied when a sustainable, widely supported project plan has been developed.
