Reusing inner-city real estate will be one of the main tasks of the Dutch building sector for the next decennia. We know how to guarantee physical, functional and financial possibilities. There are three different ways of reusing a building: transformation, redevelopment and restoration.

Transformation: customise a building for new functions
Redevelopment: modify a building while retaining existing functions
Restoration: repair or replace parts of the building while retaining its function

Transformatie De Nieuwe Liefde Amsterdam

The value of inner-city real estate is mainly determined by the possibilities of future use. Those possibilities may seem obvious, but in reality not all possibilities are recognised and used. That is why transformation offers us the biggest challenge. Hinting to Jane Jacobs our motto is: “Old building need new ideas”.


Transformation makes old buildings suited for new functions. By reusing the existing frame, we can achieve an average cut in costs of 25% compared to a new building. We make transformation proposals, and advise on possibilities.


Based on our knowledge of large buildings in inner city areas, we make proposals for the transformation of buildings which are no longer up to standard. With the main bearing structure as base, we enable new functions that create added value.


We get the most out of a transformation commission from our knowledge of building structures. The frame forms the base for new possibilities.

We transform large buildings in the centre of large cities, both in the Netherlands and abroad, for example Athens. Dutch examples are the Oval Tower in Amsterdam, The Bank in Amsterdam and the Chamber of Commerce in Rotterdam.


We analyse the complete portfolio of a client and present it in a 4D model. The clients is thus presented with one, clear overview of the possibilities of its real estate. Possibilities that may help them persuade potential customers or that they may carry out themselves.
