A former office building in Amsterdam – with 12 floors and floor space of approximately 12000 square meters – has been given a new purpose. Student housing organization DUWO and social housing corporation Rochdale had the properties converted into student residences and business units (the ground floor is reserved for businesses, restaurants and catering). It now houses 285 students. The new use also has a positive effect on the neighbourhood.
