Eindhoven is number one among all Dutch municipalities in the Netherlands, when it comes to converting office space into residential buildings. This is shown by recent figures provided by the Dutch government institution CBS.
In Eindhoven, nearly 800 homes were created in existing buildings like former factories, offices or shops. This means that 40 percent of all newly completed homes consist of so-called transformation houses.
Examples include office space on the Cederlaan converted into student residences, the old Philips building on the Mathildelaan and a former faculty building on the TU grounds which was turned into residential units.
Following Eindhoven is Amsterdam. Last year, Amsterdam was number one.
