Project Location Rokin 49, Amsterdam
Entry DescriptionAdyen has opened its headquarters’ doors in downtown Amsterdam.
The interior of the former department store building went through a major transformation, preserving the previous ‘department- store feel’ and respecting the clients wish to re-use materials.
Striving for BREEAM EXCELLENCE, this project is quite unique and has shown a remarkably sustainable approach. Amongst others, old roof tiles were turned into unique bricks for custom-made furniture pieces.
Lighting wise an unconventional choice was made: The existing retail lighting was re-used throughout the building. A consistent grid of tracks and track spots was designed to blend with the interior and create accent lighting where needed.
All desks have been provided with appropriate, functional workspace lighting. Suspended linear profiles follow desk arrangements and strengthen the interior design statement.
The building is directly connected to a metro station in the basement, where meeting spaces shine like lanterns thanks to the glass bricks and special interior lighting.
Neon-like light lines mark the event space where company gatherings take place.
Hanging planters and peek-holes are outlined with warm light and connect floors, contributing to the overall atmosphere.
An absolute eye-catcher are the wooden staircases with integrated light which invite workers for encounters and interaction.
