Villa Washington features a variety of multipurpose commercial spaces, hidden away behind a deceptively modest facade. It was build by Leonard Smith, the engineer who designed the floating Queen Emma Bridge, in 1882. With its decorative woodwork and original tiled corridor it has been able to maintain a sense of the past, but with all the comforts of today.
After entering through the large front yard, the porch opens up into a spacious reception area. On the ground floor you will find a total of seven office / meeting room spaces. Behind the building there is a small terrace and a separate annex with bathroom facilities and a small pantry kitchen.
The top floor of the main building features four large office spaces around a central meeting room with high ceilings and hardwood floors. This can be used as a separate unit, or in connection to the floor below. This space also has access to its own bathroom and pantry kitchen facilities. The bathroom also has two showers, so if so desired one can use this floor for overnight guests.
Behind the main building you’ll find a large freestanding meeting room with its own facilities. One could use this space independently from the other two spaces.
Villa Washington could be the ideal home to one or several small to medium sized companies, or for anyone interested in setting up a co-working community.
You will find Villa Washington to be very centrally located in Otrobanda at the LB Smith Square.
