The Studio, named ‘Wunderkammer’, was founded in 2013. It is situated in Amsterdam, ‘oud-west’ in a former school building on the ground floor, a beautiful light space with high vaulted ceilings and a small garden out back. In the studio, workspace is offered to rent for creative entrepreneurs and freelancers. This is an example of flexible working in which connections, meetings, (cross) inspiration and sharing ideas play an important part.
A space such as this is not designed in one day, it is a whole process of finding a ‘soul’ for the space. None of the interior elements is new-bought, they’re all second hand or just found on the streets. The walls are used for temporary exhibitions and other creative initiatives.

Studio Modderman is based in Amsterdam and is a combination of an architectural office and other forms of entrepreneurship. With this the studio is able to move freely between issues of scale, program, materiality and people in order to be able to have an original view.
Unlike a traditional office, Studio Modderman is constantly seeking to collaborate with people of different expertise and qualities. This is no different for clients. Although different interests might be at stake, the idea is to create a transparant and dynamic process in order to optimize quality, implementation and execution of the project in the earliest possible phase. Hence, Studio Modderman is able to develop projects that are economically efficient and innovative. Simplicity is the shortest path to beauty. *
It is through movement that Yvonne Modderman understands the world around us all. Nothing stands still; even buildings can be seen as a frozen moment in time. So what matters is how one moves and what energy is used in order to start moving.
The same is for architecture. When we think of architecture, most of us think of the big, powerful gestures from last century in which architecture was on top of big changes in society. Today, it is all about small movements, and as a result, it is more difficult to see the big picture. An urge to focus on origin and sustainabillity is part of the Zeitgeist of today and an important focus for Studio Modderman as well.
