A hidden gem in Amsterdam, a one of a kind building that stands apart. The redevelopment and architecture of this building personifies the meaning of OKU – the concept of space within and often hidden.


A space within

OKU Office is an exciting office redevelopment set close to the heart of Amsterdam, forming part of a broader scheme of development in the historic Fashion District of the city. The development creates a unique, intimate office space with a personal touch. A space that promotes creativity and interaction between people; a dynamic backdrop for business to flourish.

The area in and around Koningin Wilhelminaplein has long been a center for thriving commercial, industrial and creative industries since the early half of the 20th century.

Inspired by the past


The square itself is surrounded by buildings that can trace their roots and heritage to the development of the international fashion trade in particular. OKU Office was originally designed and realised in 1964 and named the Fashion House. Created by the architects A.G. and Jan Diederik Postma, renowned for both their craftsmanship and an innovative approach to building design. Their trademark became their ability to create balanced spatial structures with a keen sense of proportions. As a result, they became known for their design of factory and office buildings throughout the Netherlands in the 20th century.

In the new building design we are repurposing or renewing based on the philosophy of the original architects; in many cases bringing along materiality and design features, reinvented with current building and design innovation with a focus on creating a dynamic, sustainable office environment.

Where old meets new

Our vision

In OKU office, making the old future-proof is something that we aspire, in order that the history and the associated atmosphere are preserved. The past meets the future, creating a bridge between the old and the new.


OKU Office is characterised by its open, light space and connectivity between floors that bring harmony and cohesion; allowing contact between people where needed to share ideas but also allowing private space to work alone; the best of both worlds. The atrium at the center of the building enhances the light and openness of the floors and leads up to a thoughtful and unique rooftop garden.

Creating meaningful space

Design concept

OKU Office creates an interesting and varied environment that inspires, galvanises ideas and sparks the imagination. The consideration for different types of space needed in successful organisations serves an important purpose in bringing harmony, synergy and a dynamic element to the work environment.

The rooftop garden caps a complete environment for tenants and visitors alike to the building.

A hidden oasis


Its inclusion in the OKU Office concept is a thoughtful addition that provides an extension to the covered building space that can be used formally or informally, for business or leisure, as an inspiring extension of the usable office space for meetings or to provide a peaceful backdrop to get those creative ideas flowing.
