‘A home at the end of the world’


Founded by Erik Wong in the Northern part of the Netherlands is Wongema …  a multiple workstation for artists and designers and other creatives who would like to seek shelter for a couple of days to retreat, meet and greet or just to relax and find inspiration.

But it is also a super location for spending a weekend with friends and have your own private pub and restaurant …

I found this magical place via Wij zijn Kees … you remmebr I worte about them last week. You might recognise studio IJM’s signature here  too … 🙂

    Ik heb hier afgelopen winter gegeten na een lange winterwandeling. Met een groep vrienden is het traditie om (als het op zijn koudst is) een wandeling door het Groningse landschap te lopen. Bepakt en bezakt met vooral sterke drank en zelfgemaakte gehaktballetjes lopen we zo’n 25 km om daarna boerenkool met worst te eten. En dit keer was het eindstation Wongema. Ik weet nog goed hoe warm de sfeer was en hoe iedereen uitgeput ging zitten en zijn ‘leensokken’ aantrok.
