OKU office is our renovation of the former Fashion House in Amsterdam-West. The new work environment is characterised by open and bright spaces with floors of no less than 40 by 40 meters. KCAP proposed to add an atrium, providing the building with light workplaces to meet contemporary needs. An intervention that will also bring spatial interaction and connection between the different floors before leading up to a green roof garden. The renovation will play an important part in creating a sustainable and future-proof office. The redevelopment of this building coincides with the development of OKU House, for which KCAP designed the integral landscape and architecture. The adjacent Berghaus Plaza is being completely renewed by MVSA Architects. These projects are all part of our densification plan for Koningin Wilhelminaplein Noord in the Fashion District of Amsterdam, bringing 600 new homes to the area. Construction for the OKU House and Berghaus Plaza started in August 2021; work on the OKU Office is expected to begin in spring 2023.
