Care hotel Domstate Utrecht

Albert van Koningsbruggen in Utrecht. The clients are guests, the reactivation center is a care hotel. diederendirrix designed the renovation of the care complex, Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe, the interior.
In the building from the seventies of the last century, an integrated care concept was realized for AxionContinu. The Domstate program consists of a care hotel for short-term rehabilitation with luxury care rooms, a research and treatment center, a restaurant and workplaces. All functions are organized around a patio that has been redecorated.

Everything is rehabilitation.
Within the architecture of diederendirrix architects Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe translated four themes into interior and use. Together with AxionContinu the substantive basis for the interior has been laid.
The design by Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe encourages guests to do things and to be actively involved in strengthening. The themes that can be found in the design are: ‘It is a hotel, unless …’, ‘Outside colors’, ‘Outside introduction’ and ‘Rehabilitation is top sport’ can be felt throughout the building.Rehabilitation is top sport.
Everything in Hotel Domstate revolves around rehabilitation. The goal of Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe is to make this as fun as possible. To motivate hotel guests and challenge them with an active look and playful elements in the design. Seduce to continue in the direction of your own independence.

In the hotel, due to the understated appearance, the gray office furniture Boring van Lensvelt was used. In the audio studio, This 102 Upholstered Chair Armrests are mixed with 101 & 102 PP Chairs designed by Richard Hutten.

ENTER. Eindhoven

ENTER. is a recruitment organisation for technology professionals in the Netherlands. People come first in an ever more digital world. That’s the principle on which this new office design is based. Whereas designs can be timeless, high-tech certainly isn’t.

When it comes to the new office design, ENTER. want it to show who they are: innovative, inspiring and open. Their ‘what’, ‘why’ and ‘how’ are reflected in the workplace design. This is where an international group of highly talented professionals work together as one family. They enjoy having lunch together, preferably all 40 of them at long tables. Better still: outside on the rooftop terrace – weather permitting.

The interior has a neutral, grey and technical basis. It is a basis that simply must work well. The office spaces are fully equipped with the Boring program. In areas where employees are meeting up, wood has been used.

Rijnboutt Amsterdam

Atelier Van Lieshout as a main thread

Rijnboutt worked together with Fokkema & Partners and Lensvelt on the remarkable interior of their brand new office on the Moermanskkade in Amsterdam. The design agency immediately fell for the outspoken furniture of Atelier Van Lieshout (AVL) for Lensvelt, that even designed special ‘Tree Tables’. Now AVL runs through the 1600 m2 building like a red thread.

Rijnboutt wanted maximum attention for comfortable furniture for both visitors and employees. Project contractor Lensvelt thought along and supplied furniture that fits the robust location. The sturdy AVL Office Chairs, upholstered in black leather and cow print leather, and the black leather-covered AVL Koker Chairs for the glass meeting rooms, fit like a tailor made suit. To match the predominantly black and white tones Lensvelt opted for a green and a blue space with a few idiosyncratic eye catchers: the AVL Workbench and AVL Koker Chairs. The AVL Lazy Modernist, together with the AVL SPR Cathedra Lounger, invites you to relax, enjoy the panoramic view over the IJ and get inspired.

Rijnboutt designed in the line of Atelier Van Lieshout, special large polyester tables with an embedded planter. These tables on the work floor are called ‘Boomtafels’ by the Rijnboutt employees. Piet Hein Eeks round stools on wheels are also custom made. They can be stored away under the desks and can be taken out at office consultations.

“When you bring together eighty employees of two branches in a brand new building, it’s a huge advantage that we are architects: we can realise our ideal office”, says Frederik Vermeesch, one of the five architect directors. “Together with Lensvelt, important concepts such as cooperation, transparency and flexibility were translated in a clever and original way into the interior. Here we created silence places, war rooms, meeting rooms, flex workplaces, an open work floor, a scale model room and a library.”

About Rijnboutt
Since last summer, the multidisciplinary design agency in the field of architecture, urban design and landscape is housed on the fourth and fifth floor of a building on the Moermanskkade in the Western Docklands of Amsterdam. The agency works on complex urban tasks with a mix of functions such as offices, homes and retail. These include the redevelopment of the post office at the Neude in Utrecht, the Catherinasteeg in Leiden, the ‘Kop van Cruquius’ and the Citroën Noord building at the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam, and the flagship stores of Hudson’s Bay in Amsterdam, Tilburg, Breda and Amstelveen.

Rijnboutt is a participant of the Dutch Green Building Council (DGBC) and has been involved in the preparation of the BREEAM label for area development and sustainable urban development.

Brightlands Smart Service Campus in Heerlen

A former ABP (pension fund) office building dating from 1977 is since 2015 a breeding ground for education, research and entrepreneurship. Diederendirrix architecture & urban development and Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe designed the Brightlands Smart Service Campus in Heerlen. The building got a new entrance and two floors were redesigned into ‘community floor’. It is the perfect place to meet and work together in the building.
Diederendirrix renovated the former giant ABP office building measuring 21,000 square metres and made it into a campus for start-ups, companies and a scientific institute. An initiative of pension provider APG, the Maastricht University and the Province of Limburg.
The middle zone is a warm wooden world for meeting and knowledge exchange, including among other things the Living Room, espresso bar and the Forum. In the zone around the Forum, diederendirrix designed a light, glass world offering a view of the park-like surroundings. Office spaces, meeting rooms, education and research spaces – among other things – are housed in this glass world.

In the middle zone the flooring between the first and second floor was partly broken through, which creates a double-height space. This space, the Forum, contains a large wooden stand which also serves as circulation area. Here, people can work together and debate and lectures can be held. The glass walls provide a view of the surrounding spaces, such as the meeting places and the restaurant.
Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe designed the interior of the community floor. A raster of slanting lines forms the basis for a pattern of coloured carpet on the floor. The lamps and furniture also find their place along these diagonals, sometimes right through walls or glass partitions. This way, the pattern makes a connection between the spaces and the visitors.

Lensvelt supplied the furniture to Van Eijk & Van der Lubbe’s design, for the Studio Lensvelt Electric Sit To Stand workstations, Marcel Wanders Studio 2 Duo, as conference tables with Studio 7100 tables and for the Forum, linkable PHE Made in the Workshop Stackable Chair from Piet Hein Eek delivered.

Binst Architects Antwerpen

Luikstraat 7, an address with history. Built as a warehouse for rubber from Congo and from the end of October 2018 the new site for B brand, B 7 and Binst Architects.

Lensvelt has, among other things, supplied furniture to Binst Architects from its collection. Including Rick Minkes No Idea sofas in gray and black Richard Hutten This 101 Upholstered Chairs.

For the workplaces and consultation tables, a new table concept called FIVE was created according to B brand design. B brand is a design studio based in Antwerp, under the name of Binst Architects, which focuses in more detail on; branding, exhibition concepts, product development, the design of our own furniture design and exquisite interior design assignments on a private scale. Guided by the strategic thinking of a compact, strong team of interior architects and designers including Wim Heyninck, Ben Depuydt and Sebastiaan Delagrange and through visionary thinking, B brand delivers beautiful solutions based on results that inspire. A refined high-quality end product through powerful lines and a well thought-out design that reflects the soul of craft and honest materials. FIVE is a new, atypical table concept with five legs in collaboration with Lensvelt, a construction kit that can be used in different configurations.

Social Service Zeist

Helgasnelarchitecten from Rotterdam was asked by the Social Service in Zeist to make a first start with the employees to change the closed office environment and organized workshops for the employees where the users were challenged and seduced. Helgasnelarchitecten listened, observed and then made many sketches to come to the core.
The spaces are designed with attention to the detail and emotion of the customers. The rounded corners soften the walls and the consultation rooms, they give the room a humane atmosphere. Oak is combined with HPL which breaks the furniture into loose surfaces, surfaces that participate in the colors on the walls.

The specially designed meeting tables are used side by side alternately with the quiet gray Boring and 7001 furniture from Lensvelt.

The colors on the walls and floor tiles form a total composition with the furniture of Lensvelt as AVL Office Chairs, AVL Sleeves and AVL Glyders. Because the space radiates a humane atmosphere, conversations with the client have been given a personal atmosphere.

BPD Burgerweeshuis Amsterdam

After a year and a half of transformation and restoration, approximately 225 employees of residential developer BPD moved to the former Burgerweeshuis on the IJsbaanpad in Amsterdam at the end of January 2018. The employees of the former head office, located in Hoevelaken since 1963 and those from the North-West regional office in Haarlem now working together in Amsterdam. The office is more than 5,000 m2.

The national monument, a design by Aldo van Eyck, has recently been transformed into a new office located at IJsbaanpad 1-5 near the Olympic Stadium. The building is one of the earliest examples of structuralist construction and counts as one of the most important post-war national monuments.

Architect Aldo van Eijck had especially designed playgrounds – more than 700 in Amsterdam alone – when he received the assignment for the Burgerweeshuis. It became a kind of spatial manifesto, a mirror of his ideas. Van Eijck’s architecture focuses on people and their perception of space. The Burgerweeshuis is a concatenation of square units with many vistas and squares, the building is a safe shell around an intimate interior space.
The one-and-a-half-year renovation that preceded BPD’s relocation can partly be seen as a reconstruction. In order to make the building meet the requirements of today’s requirements, renovation architect Wessel de Jong applied floor heating, an air-freshening system and a quantity of cables that would have been unthinkable in 1960. However, they are so cleverly hidden that nothing can be seen. In order to prevent the 328 concave domes in the roof of the building from functioning as a sound box, a thin layer of insulation material was applied and moody colored wall panels were placed.
All just as unobtrusive as the gray office furniture from Lensvelt, which is aptly named after the design of Space Encounters Boring, a design with a conscious RAL color gray which has received international awards and attention from 2016 onwards. So the original details are extra: kitchen corners with poffertjes stove, a concrete playground with diving racks and smile mirrors, and wooden storage cabinets.
Following AkzoNobel, which opened its Essential Art Space in 2016, and ABN Amro, which followed last year, BPD is the third company to have a publicly accessible exhibition space on the Zuidas. Two even. One is dedicated to the history of the building and has been renamed ‘treasure room’. The other is a relatively modest space, but the exhibitions that are made here – three per year – can fan out over other parts of the building. They also always have a link with architecture.
Lensvelt Contract collaborated intensively and productively with the architects of Ex Interiors and project manager Maarten Bosch from BDGM to deliver this project. The furniture supplied was from the Boring Collection, as well as other pieces such as the AVL Presidential Chair, CHTH coat racks and the AVL Office Chair, all in the same shade of grey to match the Boring items. This was supplemented with products from various international brands including Norr11 , Moduplus, Vitra, Artek, Arco, Carl Hansen, Nestor & Rocks, Danskina and Kinnasand carpets. Subsequently, in this building all the materials and colors are coordinated accurately and surprisingly.

Realization 2017-2018.

Joolz, Amsterdam

In June 2015, Space Encounters won the pitch to design the new Joolz headquarters in a former factory in an up and coming neighborhood in Amsterdam North. The manufacturer and designer of ergonomic prams has a strong focus on sustainability. Keyword of the renovation is positive design, their core value.
The new Joolz headquarters is located in an existing industrial building consisting of a large light factory hall and an office building. All the walls on the ground floor have been removed, creating one large room and allowing the hall to become visible to passers-by. The most dramatic renovation has been the construction of three lavish interior gardens, filled with trees plants, birds and fish. The gardens are a stunning backdrop to the daily office routine and express Joolz’s ideology: positive design. In addition, they improve the indoor climate and provide Joolz’s employees with the opportunity to temporarily retreat to a more exotic workplace. Lensvelt supplied all the furniture. The office spaces are fully equipped with the Boring program, designed by Space Encounters. The gardens have been furnished with AVL Glyders of Atelier van Lieshout and tables from the Lensvelt Meeting Tables program.

Quooker Headquarters

INAMATT studio designed the interior in 2016 for the new headquarters of Quooker.
The base material in the interior of the entrance hall and the offices is slightly stained wood. This material is used to create the custom-made furniture and the paneling on the walls of the cabinet furniture. It radiates calm because of it’s neutral appearance. But it also has a warm atmosphere because it is a natural material with a lively texture. The choice of materials is inherent tp Inamatts way of working. The studio makes it clear that people are always central to them. The interior of the new canteen on the first floor of Quooker was quite a challenge. “Everyone used to have lunch together in a living room setting. But in the new building the space is much larger. The question was up to us to again be able to sit at the kitchen table, but on another level. Which has now become a kind of kitchen. We designed canteen tables with Lensvelt. Around the table there are a wide variety of chairs to give some life, even if they are empty. Also, the lamps above the tables are different in shape. However, it is all performed in one color and the shapes are related to each other “.
The offices are calm through the light, muted colors and natural materials. Much attention has been paid to the acoustics of the new office. Sound absorption is included in the cabinet doors, cabinets themselves, the walls and the ceiling islands above workplaces. “The cabinets were developed in collaboration with Lensvelt, coated on the outside with a specially designed sound-absorbing fabric. The cabinets are developed based on research by acoustic experts. On the outside the cabinets are lined with fabric. On the inside, the doors are perforated. ”
Each workstation has generous storage space with sliding drawers and acoustic modules where space is left for each employee to adapt the environment to their own personal needs. “if you want to sit apart for a meeting or phone call you can go to the flex areas and meeting rooms in the office bar. These are placed slightly higher so you can easily look out the windows. ”

Bruns ‘de Ploeg’ Bergeijk

The distinctive factory building of Weverij de Ploeg in Bergeijk was designed by Gerrit Rietveld and started operating in 1958. The building was designed in accordance with the ideals of De Ploeg, and had to offer an optimal working climate, in harmony with the woodland environment surrounding it. As of the beginning of 2017, the building has been commissioned by Bruns, an interior design project management company focusing on museums and exhibitions worldwide. The factory building is characterized by its eight characteristic curved shed roofs; four longer and four shorter sheds. They are made of pre-stressed concrete (built with the then state-of-the-are Zeiss-Dywidag system) and are only 7 inches thick. The very light and pronounced design calls for a interior that allows the focus to remain on the building and those inside it. The office space is fully furnished with the Boring program; 70 electrically adjustable desks, acoustic cabinets, bins and acoustic panels. Complemented with some classics from the Lensvelt collection (such as the Job Cabinet and the recently acquired Rietveld Military Series) and elements of designer Aart van Asseldonk, this design represents a true tribute to the rich history of Weverij de Ploeg and Rietveld.
For the canteen, a series of tables and chairs designed by Aart van Asseldonk, which is called ‘de Ploeg’, are currently being developed to be launched later this year.

OC&C Strategy Consultants Rotterdam

Robust, industrial and comfortable. These were the keywords with which Fokkema & Partners started work on the interior of the offices of Rotterdam consulting firm OC&C. Columns were stripped and ceilings were left in view in order to get the crude concrete in sight. The roughness of these surfaces are contrasted with high quality finishes.
Boompjes, where the office of OC&C is located, has a rich history. After the second war a big part of the buildings on this street were in ruins. The first building erected on the promenade was the building of De Nederlandsche Bank. On the upper two floors Fokkema & Partners established the office of the consulting firm.

OC&C initially asked for traditional workstations. But an analysis of the work of the firm by Fokkema & Partners, led to an alternative plan in which open workplaces are combined with private areas. This program was complemented by places where spontaneous meeting is facilitated. By concentrating the meeting and social spaces in the middle of the floor, the office is always lively, even when few workers are present. It was decided to keep simple lines and specific interior details that refer to the history of the former DNB office building, which dates back to the 50s. Lensvelt designed workspaces in line with the concept, that show how the frames have been finished, adding a touch of rawness.

KLM Digital Studio

KLM took the step in 2017 to bring together the teams that develop various digital services, tools and information systems in the Digital Transformation department. The community of 175 employees is seen as a pilot and has a temporary nature, so that it is possible to explore how KLM’s winning way of working can also be realized in digital form.
Due to the temporary nature, a limited budget was available. Existing fixed components (floor coverings, layouts) were the starting point. These are only adjusted at the most necessary places: where the floor coverings were in bad condition, parts were laid in with durable carpet tiles of recycled fishing nets.
The familiar colors of the KLM house style have been used in a striking way in the interior. A beautiful contrast is achieved by vintage furniture in the famous blue tones and a dash of red with AVL Shaker Bar stools, contrasting the Boring work furniture.

The Hague, Rijnstraat 8

The former Ministry of Housing, transformed into a flexible new government office to various ministries and departments after a major refurbishment in 2017. Rijnstraat 8 is part of the master plan of office accommodation in The Hague. It is the first government office that brings together and accommodates multiple government organizations.

In total there are 4400 workplaces for more than 6000 users. The building next to The Hague Central Station will soon accommodate more than 6,000 (mostly) civil servants from Foreign Affairs and Infrastructure and the Environment, the Central Agency for the Reception of Asylum Seekers (COA), the Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) and the Repatriation and Departure Service (DT & V).

The former office building was converted into flexible offices for the government by BAM and Plan@Office. These offices are flexible work environments where people work independently of time and place. The renovation of the building at Rijnstraat is the latest and most extreme example of this development. It has facilities for meeting, networking, communication and cooperation. It is the largest realized Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in Europe.

The main meeting room has the same atmosphere as the former Van Kleffens Hall of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It is one of the landmarks in the new building. Lensvelt Contract delivered a major contribution to the meeting room with AVL Office Chairs, and created custom made seats for press with integrated folding writing tables.

On all floors stylized seating areas are available in various designs, in different colors of artificial leather and natural leather. The Blocks seats and sofas are designed in collaboration with OMA Architects and are fitted with plug and play facilities.
