ONE OF THE BEST WORKSPACES IN EUROPE

The collaboration between Hofman Dujardin Architects and Fokkema&Partners led to the development of the Eneco headquarters in Rotterdam.

They have designed the interiors to  create the perfect working environment, complete with solar power, natural light and oxygen from internal vegetation, echoing Eneco’s vision of sustainability

The working and meeting areas are designed to be energetic islands floating on an otherwise calm, light-white terrazzo floor. Some islands are open spaces and others enclosed for privacy but they are all executed with vibrant colours and materials.

The 14-floor, 25,000m2 office has been operational since April, with employees enjoying one of the best workspaces in Europe.

The heart of the building is a central atrium surrounded by a light-filled meeting centre with a reception space, meeting rooms, working areas, informal meeting areas, lounges, a restaurant, a service desk and an auditorium.

Sun collectors on the south facade and on the roof track the sun throughout the day, absorbing the maximum amount of solar energy.

The floors are designed so there is a balance between the open and the closed, the private and the public and the quiet and the dynamic. The ground floor meeting island has lush and vibrant red, purple, beige and orange carpets, equally colourful chairs and, as a calming contrast, subtle oak tables.

To boost the design diversity further still, the beige carpets are furnished with white tables and chairs, and the entire experience is enhanced by lighting designed by Studio Rublek which brings out the rich hues and textures of the space.

The design gives employees a wide choice of places to work and meet, which means a flexible working environment without being fixed to one working desk. This reduces the monotony of the office environment and maximises creativity and the potential for innovative thinking.
