Monument Rijksadministratie Gouda

Military Hospital becomes monumental residential building

The former Military Hospital in Gouda is a listed monument, originally built in 1870. It is a fine example of early 19th century architecture, with a large garden including monumental trees. The building counts two stories of 5 meters high, and an attic with so-called Philibert trusses, trusses made from trees that have grown crooked deliberately.

In the 70s the building is rebuilt as office for the state administration and got the inscription: Rijks-administratie. At that time an emergency staircase is added on the outside and the whole building is provided with lowered ceiling boards.

These later additions will be removed and the building will be redeveloped with 6 luxury vertically linked villas (300-400 m2). The villas extend over four or five floors, from basement to attic. Potential buyers are able to choose their own customized interior. All homes also have a private outdoor space, besides the shared use of the large monumental garden.
