The Vincentius Foundation Rotterdam supports individuals and groups who find themselves in spiritual and social need. The foundation runs a monumental shelter and supports and initiates social assistance to needy people/families in the Rotterdam community. 

The housing complex on the Mackaystraat in Rotterdam is a municipal monument. In 2015, Drees & Sommer (then BOAG) conducted a feasibility study on the possibilities of turning the one-bedroom apartments into two-bedroom apartments. Partly by making use of the space in the roofs, the original 29 apartments could be converted into 24 spacious two-room houses (49 m²) with two common resident rooms. Together with the new tenant, the care institution Pameijer, the plan was further elaborated with special attention to building physics (sound insulation, heat insulation) and the preservation of the monument.

Added value

Vincentius gave us the (financial) scope to make as much as possible of the empty space present in the building useful with sometimes substantial interventions. This made it feasible for Pameijer and the Vincentius Foundation to realize their care and social objectives.
