Area developer BPD acquires 150 employees and moved into the former Burgerweeshuis (1960) designed by Aldo van Eyck in Amsterdam. The national monument was renovated by Wessel de Jonge Architects, after which Ex Interiors constructed their new interior. By transforming the building, a new dimension has been added honoring the original design.

Transforming the new interior layer, which once was a former orphanage into a comfortable workplace. The interior has been considered as a new element that has been added to the national monument. The sleek and sober design fits in seamlessly with the strict rhythms, spatial planning and dimensions of the existing architecture, creating a self-evident unity.

All workplaces are equipped with furniture that fits the look and feel of the austere architecture. In order to provide the workplaces with the necessary (visual and acoustic) shelter without disturbing the spatiality of the architecture, screens have been designed that further divide the space through the filing cabinets. The materialization and lines of these screens refer to the original permanent furniture of the “Burgerweeshuis”. Modular, leather seating elements are placed in the sitting pit, that match the color of the wood present and the pure appearance of the concrete.
