Dutch architectural firm Groosman Partners designed this space in Rotterdam. Formally the home of the Rotterdam Dry Dock Company, the space now serves as an education and technology centre. Called the Innovation deck, it has suspended in it an office complex beneath an eight metre high ceiling. The inserted floor adds roughly 1000 square metres of office and meeting rooms.
William McDonough+Partners designed the new office space of Bosch Siemens Hausgeräte in Hoofddorp, Netherlands. The central area is designed around an indoor-outdoor living green wall, which helps furnish an open and flexible work space.
The place radiates a sense of calm, silence and peace. Being a huge opened space, it meets everyone’s taste, accomplishing every dream. Structured of four levels, the space is composed of zones, alternative workplaces and a flexible use of furniture, each floor featuring a central point.
Area Sq was appointed by global security software leader McAfee to design and fit-out their 16,000 sq ft EMEA Headquarters in Amsterdam. The office is made up of two floors, each at around 8,000 square feet. The office aims to maximise flexible staff, providing a dynamic environment including offices, meeting rooms, informal meeting spaces and break-out facilities.
According to the designers Area Sq:
McAfee’s brief was to design an uncompromising, contemporary high end scheme reflecting their strong brand identity and showcasing cutting edge technology. Despite the project providing multiple challenges and significant scope of works totalling £5.7m, the client set a timescale of just nine weeks.
This wonderfully designed office is the office space of Concrete Architects, based in Amsterdam. The office is quirky yet elegant and sophisticated, making great use of dark orange and black. The office is based in Amsterdam’s infamous “red light district”; yet despite the less savoury elements of the area, the architects have a great contemporary spot! What’s great about this office is that it’s bright and modern, while at the same time keeping an industrial edge. This mixture of styles creates a really vibrant design.
The exterior is a great juxtaposition to their inherent surroundings,too– a rectangular facade and less historical looking outside clearly distinguish Concrete from their surrounding neighbours.
ZLTO is an organization for farmers , gardeners and other entrepreneurs in the Netherlands. When they redesigned their office space they wanted to achieve a ‘clubhouse’ feel where staff could feel as if they were at home. With this end in mind the office makes use of high ceilings, leather upholstery and deep tone carpets. All in all a very impressive office space.
Robin Kerssens Architecture the architects behind the Crocs Netherlands office tried to infuse the Croc style and brand into the office space. They created a large, bright and open office, opting for a mixture of open and closed workplaces.

The Amsterdam studio Sander Architects have designed a set of cardboard meeting rooms for the Dutch bank Rabobank. The office place, which is located in Amsterdam, has meeting rooms which are enclosed by giant cylinders made of cardboard and paper.
The multi-ply cardboard is layered to create textured patterns on the surface of one cylinder. Translucent Japanese paper covers a second cylinder, as well as the springy lanterns that surround circular skylights.
The dutch architecture firm GROUP A designed this office space which is a multi-level factory and office building on the edge of Ijburg, Amsterdam. The office was created for two companies which required a large facility to undertake simulations and a set of 8-meter high factory spaces on top of one another to delineate a simple and pragmatic building.
Situated adjacent to the water of the ijmeer in an area set aside for the development of commercial buildings, the rectangular volume maintains the scale and proportions of the neighbouring buildings on site. The facade features a skin made out of 3 x 1 m corten steel sheets which lend a warm and reddish brown patina effect. The decidedly industrial treatment lends a distinct aesthetic to the building while referencing the character of the companies.
This bright, open and airy office is the office space of the Nije Gritenije Foundation. The Nije Gritenije foundation is a Rabobank initiative based in Heerenveen, Netherlands aimed at stimulating local and regional entrepreneurship. The foundation asked Amsterdam based FLATarchitects to design twenty workstations and a conference room on the ninth and tenth floor of the brand new Rabobank building. Neutral colours are used throughout giving a calming feel to the offices overral, however it avoids being ‘boring’ through the use of colour accents and quirky murals on the walls. We especially like the use of wooden, geometric walls to divide the spaces .
Redbull the creator of the famous Redbull energy drink has recently opened up a new office space in Amsterdam. The Redbull office spans almost 10,000 sqm, forming just a small part of the vast 78,000 sqm Media Wharf complex at the NDSM Wharf.
The offices were designed by Sid Lee Architecture, who are based both in Montreal and Amsterdam. The theme behind this new Redbull office was to highlight duality and polarity; things such as reason and intuition, darkness and light, public and private. The office has a unique feel to it, with much of the space seemingly unfinished and undefined. Rough edges and an underlying feel of the ‘street’ harks back in respect to the shipyard’s historic design. We’ve covered other Red bull offices before, you can check out their London Office space here.
