The architectural appearance of this former district office in the south of Amsterdam used to be unremarkable. However, its location, sturdy concrete skeleton and atrium proved to be the perfect foundation for a transformation into a modern, sustainable and eye-catching multi-residential building.

From the very beginning, future residents were involved in the design process. They helped determine the size, layout and location of their Smartloft as well as the function and layout of the shared spaces. Large, communal outdoor spaces are established all around the building, while the atrium acts as the central heart of the building. From here, residents can access all homes, facilities and the roof terrace.
