Penne Hangelbroek

Team Leader, Senior Architect

With over 25 years of experience, Penne Hangelbroek directs and coordinates the architectural portfolio of West 8. Leading multidisciplinary teams from concept to construction, Penne specializes on the restoration of monuments and responding to historical contexts. His approach produces unpretentious, well-founded and bespoke design responses to complex design issues that create a dialogue with their context.

Penne’s designs are not only feasible within the set limits, regulations, and project frameworks, but respond to the wider context of the existing (urban) environment, culture, and historical narrative. Working on both Public and Private commissions, and providing architectural typologies to urban design masterplans, notable examples of Penne’s portfolio include the transformation of Fort Bij Vechten into the National Waterline Museum, the station design and urban integration of the multi-modal hub of Brno in Czechia, and the historic University of Amsterdam campus.

For over a decade, Penne has frequently taught and lectured at the Academies of Architecture in both Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
