This former telephone centre at Herengracht 295 is meaningful to the urban fabric of the city because of the great increase in the scale of buildings that were built in this part of the canal belt which makes it unique. Architecturally, the building is typical of the post-war period.
The design for this former industrial building will contain luxury apartments in the future and the internal design is configured to the existing external façade grid. The facade will also be framed by sandstone elements that protrude from the elevation of the building.
