Within the context of increasing vacancy in both offices as institutional buildings, transforming the monumental buildings of the Binnengasthuis area into a housing purpose is a relevant assignment as the housing demand in Amsterdam will always maintain. As housing requires a small scale appropriate to live in, this arises a conflict with the monumental building. This conflict in scale should be approached on different levels : the volume, the element, the materialization, depending on the buildings value and program.
