This competition entry is a proposal for a renovation and addition to an existing office building in Amsterdam. The program for the building is mixed, with the lower floors remaining as offices for the existing businesses and the higher, new floors being dedicated to residential purposes. The proposal includes 3 apartments and 3 masionettees.
The light steel structure of the new addition offers a small separation from the existing building, providing a contemporary design that is sympathetic to the history of the building.
