Vacant office building transformed into sought-after place to live

Office transformation Monchyplein

The Hague is growing fast. The city will have to build many new homes in the coming years to accommodate its rapidly growing population. We would like to provide everyone with a nice home in the city and that is why we are also looking at vacant office buildings. The largely vacant Alexanderveld building offers precisely the kind of opportunity we are looking for.

Supply and demand in the housing market can be better matched if less popular office space can be transformed into sought-after places to live. And that is what we are doing at Monchyplein. The relatively new building had become difficult to let as office space but was in far too good a condition to be demolished. On closer examination, it was clear that the building could enjoy a new future as a residential complex. For SPF Beheer, SENS is breathing new life into a youngish but dated building.


Monchyplein will become an attractive residential property with 43 luxury apart-ments in a grand and imposing area of The Hague. The spacious penthouses on the top floor will offer a magnificent view of The Hague’s skyline and look out to sea over the Scheveningen woods. As far as possible, the transformation will be carried out with materials from the existing building. The project will therefore make a sustainable transition from accommodation for businesses and professionals to homes for happy residents who will be able to enjoy the delights of the seat of government.
