The new office of IK Investment Partners is situated in de Zuidas business district in Amsterdam. Surrounded by windows on three sides, it offers a panoramic view over the city. A clear zoning of the interior defines different characters within the plan. This way, the working environment finds a balance between areas for concentration and places for encounter.
The first zone forms the backbone of the office, characterized by a continuous functional wall clad with timber slats. From the reception desk, this wall leads visitors to the lounge area which floods in daylight due a void in the ceiling. Together with the adjacent pantry, the double height lounge forms the heart of the office. This second zone is marked by a parquet floor which gives the office a warm presence.
To regulate the acoustics while maintaining visual transparency, a glass wall separates the lounge from the workstations. They are placed in the third zone, which is characterized by a gradient carpet. This floor reflects the pallet of grey tones which can be found throughout the office. Ranging from black to light grey, they bring in contrast and create different atmospheres in the different zones.
