Habraken Rutten Advocaten
Located on the 25th floor of the Millennium Tower in the center of Rotterdam, law firm Habraken Rutten opened their new office in the autumn of 2017.
A 360° view over the city of Rotterdam provides a spectacular backdrop to the office interior. It forms an essential part of the design. Views are captured in urban window frames at the end of each corridor, emphasizing the qualities of the city. The structural character of these views make the plan easy to read and without complexities. The solid building core is perforated with a variety of connecting axes, making the floorplan more transparent and efficient. Large scale pivoting doors make sure the office can be adapted to the appropriate situation when needed, without losing its transparency.
Although the interior may be serene at first glance, the tactile use of worn materials form a rich contrast throughout the office. By adding a refined and balanced lighting plan, the Habraken Rutten office transforms itself in the nightly hours, far from being a standard office. The interior design carries the new, strong signature of Habraken Rutten, taking care of the smallest details.
