This freestanding building in Alphen aan den Rijn was originally built in 1972 as a pharmacy with a laboratory on its premises. As years passed, the function of the lab was not needed anymore. As a result, part of the building had to be transformed into apartments. The surface of the attic was increased by adding four dormer windows, which repeat the rhythm of the existing openings on the floor below. At the same time the interior was redesigned and the existing exterior was freshen up. Additionally, bureaucratic issues such as parking spaces, new street numbers and utility connections were arranged. Moreover this transformation required additional mailboxes and this was the reason for redesigning the existing ones and rebuilding the billboard with the names of the companies. Architecture is not just about developing projects for buildings, but also thinking about all the details around them.
