Stan's biography

After graduating art school, Stan van den Wildenberg wanted only one thing and one thing only, to work as an interior architect. “I took to my drawing table in my small attic room, ready for my first assignment. And it didn’t take long for it to arrive: the opportunity to design a villa in Leusden. This was the start of a great and exciting career in architecture. I see it as a privilege to improve the well-being of others with my designs. I draw a lot of inspiration from the work of well-known Dutch architects and interior architects.”

“I have always had a passion for beautiful things. After graduating from technical school for furniture works, 17-year-old me started work as a furniture maker. I quickly worked my way up to works manager and came into contact with a lot of interior architects. Frankly, I wanted to do what they did. So I enrolled in art school, where I learned the importance of a correct design of a space. What is it going to be used for? Who is going to use it? What kind of vibe does it need? Nowadays I enjoy explaining to my customers that the identity of an empty space has to be ‘madly architectural’. The impact a space has on the way we feel is just immense. Well-organised spaces make their inhabitants feel calmer and more comfortable. Areas that flow seamlessly into each other even contribute to better inner equilibrium. I am still grateful every single day to have the opportunity to help people design a space in which they can feel happier. As soon as the space is right and complete, it is time for styling. Furniture and accessories reinforce the space and its inherent energy.”
