Amandus VanQuaille



The exceptional beautiful gardens are designed by landscape architect Jacques Wirtz. Amandus VanQuaille completed his architectural internship of two years in the studio of Jacques Wirtz, in the time that the sons of family Wirtz (Peter and Maarten) came into the studio of their father as well. After the internship, architect Amandus VanQuaille completed many projects with Wirtz International, like garden pavilions, gazebos, swimming pools or authentic pool houses, and larger buildings.


Design Approach

The shade sails designed by Amandus VanQuaille have a light and festive character: they look ultra-light, and are nicely translucent, offering however shade on the terrace during the hot summer days. More important for the weather in Belgium: the sails are perfectly waterproof. Any family party, any rainy summer afternoon can be spent in open air on this beautiful terrace.


Perfect materials

Nomad Concept works exclusively with fabrics that are well-known for their extreme durability and great ease of maintenance, including PTFE (Teflon). This high-tech material has a life expectancy of more than 25 years and can be used outdoors throughout the year.
