Healthy and inspiring
In the interior, the contact between man and nature is strengthened by the use of nature-inclusive elements, optimal daylight admission, and circular or biobased materials.
A monumental tree of 5 meters in the atrium crosses the floors. Various seating areas have been created under the tree where employees can come together in a naturally relaxed manner. Strategically placed green walls and plants create a pleasant balance between transparency and shelter. In addition, the application of frequent greenery has a positive effect on the indoor climate and acoustics of the building and the health and well-being of the employees.
In line with the entrance hall is the richly vegetated outdoor patio. The interplay of lines of green walls in the interior and patio create a natural visual connection between inside and outside. This natural transition subtly seduces the user to work outside or to have a cup of coffee, lunch, or a drink in the open air. Inside, natural light has free reign through the daylight wall in the facade of the atrium. In the evening, this wall lights up and illuminates the heart of the central atrium.
Biophilic design is also reflected in the biobased and circular use of materials. For pleasant acoustics, the fixed cores in the office space are covered with recycled felt and the acoustic ceiling is made of native oak. The floors are made of CO2-neutral tiles, and the podium and the parquet circle around the tree are also made of native oak. The furniture features hemp upholstery or recycled Dutch design such as the striking refurbished Rietveld chairs.
