Spaces play a significant role in the lives of children.

They affect the well-being, behavior and development of children. Fascinated by this impact, I, Hilde Wierda-Boer (pedagogue and mother of two) founded Studio Ministek (stek = space) in 2013. Studio Ministek translates pedagogical concepts and goals, norms and values into spacial concepts. This results in well-designed rooms for children that stimulate play and discovery, and support learning. Both at home and in professional contexts.


I publish a blog on design and interior for children called ‘Vijf van Studio Ministek’. Although the text is in Dutch, you may find yourself inspired by the pictures I collect each week.

Curious about what Studio Ministek can do for you? Please send a message to and you’ll be contacted as soon as possible.
