water + land

Pieter Schengenga

Director, Landscape architect

Pieter Schengenga is a Senior Landscape Architect and Director at H+N+S Landscape Architects. His strives to fully integrate functionality and aesthetics in one plan. He connects his love of the Dutch landscape to his fascination for technique: the functioning of the system. 

He has experience (and special interest) in projects in the field of water and design. The commitment to ‘Room for the River’ is a continuum in Peter’s work. From the long-term vision and future scenarios (2003), through planning studies near Zutphen and Kampen, to the actual implementation and realisation of Room for the Waal in Nijmegen, the IJsseldelta, and the dike reinforcements along the lower Rhine and Lek. Pieter exported this landscape based approach to New Orleans and Long Island after hurricanes Katrine and Sandy.

Pieter is aware of the different roles a landscape architect can play in such long-term complex projects for clients (during the planning phase), and for contractors during tenders and execution. He can therefore empathize with these different interests and knows how to incorporate the spatial aspirations of the successive phases.
