Maison Descartes

Commissioned by the municipality of Amsterdam and in collaboration with the Academy for redevelopment (Academie van Herontwikkeling) we did a study on the redevelopment potential of Maison Descartes (walenweeshuis) aan de Vijzelgracht. To this end we mapped the monumental qualities and the development potential.
