Redevelopment of an office space to 4 high-end residentials and a commercial area

This project consists of two semi-detached urban villas from 1898 was designed and inhabited by architect Eduard Cuypers who also held his office here. In this office, located opposite the Rijksmuseum, the Amsterdam School has emerged: a style in Dutch architecture that flourished in the period 1910 to 1930.

Cuypers used an eclectic architecture. He combines elements from different flows, which are clearly visible in this building with remarkable characteristics such as asymmetry, flower and leaf reliefs in natural stone, stained glass, bay windows, foyers, turrets and dormers on different levels. REB realized four special houses and a business space that is currently being used as an art gallery.
