In the stately Hoflaan street in Rotterdam P·A transformed a late nineteenth century mansion. The plan was executed in several phases: in phase one (2013) the shabby rooftop extension was replaced by a complete second floor stretching the entire length of the property. In phase two (2015) P·A designed and managed the construction of the extension of the ground floor. During phase three (2016) the garden and the interior were completed.

"When I see the new ground floor in combination with the garden it almost feels like we moved. It doesn’t feel like an addition but rather a complete metamorphosis. Fantastic!"
