«The project 'Living Vredeoord' offers a lot of strenghts and opportunities, which enabled fast decision making and makes it fun and challenging to transform it into a sustainable residential building, to build a happy story for all stakeholders».

Redevelopment of an office
building into a residential space
Inside garden and green rooftop
The office building Vredeoord 105 in Eindhoven is about to undergo a makeover and be converted into 166 apartments. The project will consist of two-room and three-room apartments with an average size of 67m2 per apartment. Parking and storage are organized in the private underground parking garage. The project will target the mid rental segment meeting the high demand for this type of residential product in Eindhoven, the fifth city in the Netherlands in terms of inhabitants and part of one of the most innovative areas in Europe.
Modern-day urban living demands a good location, functional space and a green touch and this is exactly what this redevelopment with newly build qualities will offer. The project will be part of a new residential area Vredeoord, the former Philips business park, with social meeting places, close to a park and ten minutes cycle distance from the city centre.
The existing qualities of the building are being respected and maintained such as the chic natural stone façade, high floor height and floor high glass. For extra living comfort, each apartment will have its own balcony, next to the inside garden of the project. It will meet the sustainability requirements amongst others by the solar panels on the roof and a green roof.
This new urban development project is a perfect example of how to create a serene and sustainable living environment in the city. The transformation into a new and improved ‘Living Vredeoord’ started mid 2019.
