C.A.J. Bleyenberg is the renowned Business leader of Kwantum Behang BV. In the 1980s and 1990s Kwantum provided wallpaper across the city of The Hague, led by John Bleyenberg.
Bleyenberg is a completely new catering and entertainment concept in the old Kwantum building on the Grand Market in The Hague. In addition to a restaurant, a coffee bar and a cocktail bar you can find meeting spaces, Het Magazijn nightclub and The Hague’s first real rooftop bar.
On the 1st floor the 320 m2 is divided into a reception room and 3 meeting rooms, with the largest able to accomodate up to 50 guests. In the canteen you will find many references to the old Kwantum past, and the different seating arrangements contribute to the laid-back vibe.
Take a seat on one of the several Maarten Baas 101 Chairs of Lensvelt which work beautifully in this interior. Supplemented with the old classics like Thonet and Castelli furniture.
Bleyenberg has the honor to open the very first, real rooftop bar in The Hague. From the 3rd floor you have great views of the Grand Market, the skyline and the rest of the city center.
Hidden in the basement of Bleyenberg you will find a new, intimate club where it’s about high quality electronic music.

PRODUCTS USED IN THIS PROJECT
In January 2007, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer Law Firm took over in the former Assurances Fair at the head of the Minerva Avenue in Amsterdam. CBRE Design (formerly Rietmeijer Concept + Interior Design) worked with the renowned British architect David Chipperfield on the project. David Chipperfield gave the entrance side an extreme makeover and provided the premises of a completely new, hyper-styled interior. The result has qualities that are unthinkable in market-conform new construction. For the workplaces, it was chosen to apply the minimalistic but highly functional Urban Workbenches program of Lensvelt.

Casper Schwarz was commissioned by CBS to make a complete design based on the following: realize an open and transparent working environment that makes both concentration and communication possible. C4ID designed in 2008 a basic office concept that can be implemented on all floors, suitable for all departments. Fixed workplaces, shared facilities in the middle zone, inviting consultation rooms, separate break rooms and sufficient storage facilities. Apart from materialisation and use of color, a zone has been divided in which all desired facilities are included. Here, acoustics, light and vision play an important role. In connection with the acoustics of the sound-damping Stealth sliding door cabinets of Lensvelt were used.
