The Keizersgracht translates to the Emperors-canal and was named after the Emperor Maximilian of Austria in 1612. Our office building Max pays a tribute to this history and invites its new residents to pick up the threads of this inspiring heritage.

Back to its former glory

This charming monumental building had been renovated numerous times and therefore lacked consistency, was built-in and lost its monumental feel. Our essential intervention was to free the monument of all unnecessary walls, blocking staircases and lowered ceilings to create roomy and light floors that could be arranged flexibly.
