Ooms Makelaars/Rotterdam

The most experienced business broker and real estate consultant in the region.

The "Ooms building", the head office of the largest real estate agent in Rotterdam, is a landmark on the Noordereiland that you can't miss. It was a wonderful challenge to make this building flourish once again.

The building consists of two parts. The left side of the building is a national monument and the right part of the building was somewhat dated. It certainly needed a major renovation. Sprank helped Ooms with the reclassification of both parts. We made a design for a much more efficient layout. Ooms asked us to make the employees visible. And we totally agreed.

So we started with that idea. We opted for an open structure, whenever possible, with great respect for the old details. For example, we did not want to hide any of the beautiful old walls, but rather, emphasise them. After the renovation, the office landscape was equipped with well-equipped work spaces, meeting and concentration rooms, meeting places, and lunch and coffee corners.

A really nice 'extra' is that the iconic Ooms buildings on the Noordereiland have won a prize. And not just one. Since 1988, the Historical Society Roterodamum has been awarding this monument distinction to a monumental Rotterdam building that has been restored and renovated with special effort. We were very proud to receive this prize. We see it as a token of appreciation for the effort of keeping the monumental past alive.

Main wishes

  • Employees were to be made visible
  • Respect for old details
  • A place to meet and collaborate
  • Spaces for various activities
  • Combine old and new
  • New elan for the home display area

The result

A striking building with an open structure in which old and new reinforce each other, inviting you to meet and collaborate.

In short


  • We mostly want to know why new accommodation, refurbishment or transformation of the office is necessary, and what the benefits have to be for the people, the company and the customers.


  • The first image formation gives an impression of a new interior, the office design, working methods and the atmosphere.

  • If you are pleasantly surprised, we will refine the design: we'll align colours and materials, and develop technical drawings and interior design.


  • We supervise construction and interior design, so that we can commission the project in a usable form. We work hard to always honour our agreements.
