This detached building in Alphen aan den Rijn was originally built in 1972 as a pharmacy with a laboratory on the premises. Over time, the function of the laboratory was no longer needed. As a result, part of the building had to be converted into flats. The surface area of the attic was increased by adding four dormer windows, repeating the rhythm of the existing openings on the floor below. At the same time, the interior was redesigned and the existing exterior was refreshed. In addition, bureaucratic issues such as parking spaces, new street numbers and utility connections were taken care of. Moreover, this transformation required additional mailboxes, so the existing mailboxes were redesigned and the billboard with the companies’ names rebuilt. Architecture is not just about developing projects for buildings, but also thinking about all the details around them.
