CITY APARTMENTS WITH UNDERGROUND PARKING
In the Koningin Sophiestraat in the Hague you find the office building Sophiestaete 120 – 130. This office has a dimension of about 7.000 sqm and consists of 6 floors, an installation room on top and underground parking garage. The office building will be transformed to 66 apartments with balcony, terrace or garden and 63 underground parking spaces. The apartments will be available for rent as of mid 2018 in the middle and higher market segment. During the transformation existing components will be used where possible to limit the amount of construction waste and to contribute to a sustainable future.
The ground floor family apartments (approx. 100 sqm) have a garden at the front and back side of the building, and a wooden depository in the back garden. The apartments on the floors will have an outdoor area of about 10 m2, oriented on the South side. All these apartments (100 – 120 sqm) have 2 or 3 bedrooms, a kitchen-living room, a bathroom with walk-in-shower and a toilet, a separate toilet and an on-site storage with connections for washer and dryer.
Single sided apartments
The single-side oriented apartments vary in size (60 – 90 m2) and have 2 bedrooms, a kitchen-living room, a bathroom with walk-in shower, a separate toilet and an on-site storage with connections for washer and dryer. These residences will also have an outdoor area of about 10 m2.
On the backside of the building there will be two duplex houses (123 sqm), on ground and first floor. They feature a garden with wooden depository, as well as a terrace of 10 sqm on the first floor.
The basement parking garage will provide for 63 parking spaces. The current parking spaces at the back of the building will be replaced by the new gardens for the residences on the ground floor. Research has been done regarding the required number of parking spaces for both residents as well as visitors – according to the applicable guidelines of the Municipality of The Hague. With 63 parking spaces in the basement and 6 parking spaces for visitors at street level, the total parking capacity required on peek-moments is 70%, thus remain well below the norm of 80% laid down in the “Parking Protocol” The Hague.
