Our firm likes to give buildings a second life. We want to prevent vacancy, want to make buildings up-to-date and give them meaning again.
Existing buildings get new functions, monumental buildings are being restored or will even get a completely new function, fit to present day. We are experienced in supervising different kinds of transformations; from a modern office building or school, to museums and a National Monument.
To be able to transform a building, you need craftsmanship and expertise. Our firm has a clear eye for the historical values of a building. We use our creativity and knowledge to provide insight in the qualities of the exiting building. We know how to combine the historical values respectfully with the present-day (technical) requirements and with the identity of the current user. By doing so, we create a new, inspiring, distinctive environment with character.
We are fully aware of all the strict and complex rules that come with working on existing real estate, heritage and monuments and we own a BREEAM ‘In Use’ certificate. Because of this, our office is also capable of doing sustainability quick scans for existing real estate and of advising clients about sustainable and durable measures.
