Hi! We are IWT, instabilitywetrust.
We are an architectural design office based in Rotterdam. We explore our changing surroundings, design spatial narratives and build architectural solutions for private, public and commercial clients.
In 2017 co-founder Chantal Schoenmakers was nominated for the ARC17 Young Talent Award and in 2018 IWT was one of the finalists of the Next Step Program. Jury chairman Do Janne Vermeulen (Team V): 'This young agency excels in creative entrepreneurship, generates demonstrable added value for the city and is exemplary as agency of the future...'.
With rapid urbanisation, increasing density, digitalisation and artificial intelligence comes an increased need for a cognitive sensitivity in our human surroundings - the environment that surrounds us.
As we think our surroundings are a constantly evolving, interacting network of highly diverse players, we design dynamic environments - from small scale interiors to large scale architectural urban projects - and spatial brand identities open for interpretation and adaptation over time.
With projects ranging from inner-city development, spatial narrative design, architecture, branding strategies, interior and design, we know how these scales interact in our spatial perception of a place.
IWT is founded by Bastiaan Kalmeyer and Chantal Schoenmakers and is embedded in a flexible collaborative network of strategic advisors, urbanists, architects, interior architects, designers, engineers and scientists.
We work for private clients, ambitious entrepreneurs, and clients such as Gemeente Rotterdam, Gemeente Eindhoven, LSI, Revolt, Cambridge Innovation Center, NS Vastgoed, New Industry, Wim Hof, Delft Technical University and Buffalo University of New York.
