Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal | Amsterdam
Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 225 was once the address for the former printing facility and editorial offices of De Telegraaf. Its striking printing facility is still visible from the street. This national heritage site was designed in 1930 by the architect J.F. Staal. Once the epitome of functionalistic architecture, it is now being redeveloped into a new landmark in the historic city centre of Amsterdam.
The removal of the upper story that was added later will restore the printing facility to its former glory. The uppermost storey of this historic building will then accommodate a floor with a breathtaking panoramic view of the city. Also included in the redevelopment plans are the admittance of daylight at various locations, a link with Kalverstraat and a sophisticated dual routing. The redevelopment is transforming the former newspaper and bank building into what it once was: a real icon. And it’s absolutely ideal for an ambitious programme of deluxe offices, retail facilities and housing. Rijnboutt architects is signing for the design.
