The design for the former Government Office for Transactions and Telephony will give this historic building a second life by transforming it into a hotel. Joseph Crouwel originally designed the building in 1925 and was influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright's Larkin building. The building has a robust concrete construction with a monumental brick facade. The project involves restoring the exterior of the building and replacing the façade of the inner court. A new refined glass construction will be added that extends into a panoramic roof structure. These additions form a complementing yet contrasting intervention in the existing building.
