In this detached villa constructed from striking red brick, initially designed as three adjoining villas on Koningslaan 1, REB develops extensive office space opportunities. 1.510 m2 net lettable area (NLA) in total to be split into a maximum of five units. Koningslaan 1 is a spacious office villa surrounded by generous outdoor space, unique in Amsterdam.
The property, quietly located adjacent to the Vondelpark in the stately Amsterdam South, was built in 1904 and designed by architect Jacques van Straaten jr. Van Straaten, a descendent of 19th century painter Bruno van Straaten, learnt the trade from Pierre Cuypers, master architect of numerous churches, the Rijksmuseum and Central Station in Amsterdam. Van Straaten also designed the Amsterdam branch of department store the Bijenkorf on Dam Square.
The property will be completely renovated before delivery. It means that various elements are restored to their former glory. The angular roof construction receives natural slate roofing and matching zinc and lead joints. Elements in good condition are cleaned and recent additions removed. All fencing and natural stone elements are renovated. The window frames return to their original form, including hardwood components that are fitted with insulated glazing.
All this returns the property to its original grandeur and high-end appearance, ready for the future. The delivery is scheduled for the second quarter of 2022.
