More designers in Ghent, Belgium
NWLND is a young architecture and urbanism studio that focuses on a complete range of architectural design. Our current portfolio includes master planning, housing, interior design, and landscape interventions in different phases and on multiple scales. NWLND is a collaboration between Pieter Vandeputte and Bert Rogiers, two architects with a combined experience of over two decades. Both architects have been developing projects independently while maintaining a close relationship since 2007, when they collaborated on and submitted their joint diploma project. In 2017 they decided to permanently collaborate, and thus NWLND was formed. Currently, NWLND is a small-scale practice with 4 international collaborators. NWLND’s approach to architecture is pragmatic and collaborative. We believe in keeping things simple by respecting the existing context and understanding that any new interventions should enhance but not overpower the existing condition, nor jeopardize the future of a site. This is achieved by finding guidelines in our surroundings – specifically; nature, heritage, history, people, and their stories – with the aim of creating a sound project with a clear point of view, without compromise. Through close and intense contact with advisors in the conceptual phase and contractors at the building site, we work towards a result that surpass expectations from the conceptualisation to detail execution. The result is never an ending, rather an opening towards new opportunities and ways of life.
