2009

European Headquarters, Amsterdam
12.000 m2, 750 workstation, 1.300 people
In collaboration with Sevil Peach, London
This project was created when employed
by Rietmeijer Huisvestingadviseurs (now CBRE)

Microsoft wanted their head office to be the first fully, truly open and flexible office where everybody works on open desks – even HR and the entire management. It is the new way of working in optima-forma.
To bring human scale to this large organisation, we grouped many different kinds of workspaces intuitively throughout the floors.
Ranging from single person concentration rooms to family tables through to height adjustable work booths. On one floor we created a large meeting area for staff and guests. This has become the buzzing heart of the organisation; promoting communication, creativity and social interaction.

Offices and showroom, Amsterdam
6.000 m2

In a listed building in the heart of Amsterdam, we created an environment with a strong identity, yet capable of being changed with the fashion seasons. The client loved the historic elements we found and allowed us to research and restore this beautiful building to its former glory.
