This monumental canal house on Herengracht in Amsterdam had to be optimized for office use. The assignment for the owner to Heyligers d+p was to develop a design for the building in which the rentable meters are optimized and with the aim of giving the appearance of the interior the quality that can be expected at a historical building on the Herengracht.

Apart from the entrance hall on the ground floor and some details in the stairwell, there was little or no classical detailing in the building. The quality of the location and historical value of the building is completely lost once you have passed the corridor. Heyligers d+p has investigated how the specific stature and quality of a canal house in the interior can be restored.
