For a leading IT company active in the food sector, i29 interior architects realized the design of a newly built office building by Bedaux de Brouwer Architects. In close collaboration an office environment was built for Schouw Informatisering. Schouw is a full-service IT partner for food companies, hosting a broad service of ERP related services. An internationally operating organization with over 150 employees with a passion for food and IT.
To create optimal acoustic performance, large photographs are printed on soft acoustic walls which are also dividing the space. As a reference to the food industry, the images show agriculture aerial photos. The colorful images are in contrast to the stark white metal climate ceiling and walls covered with whiteboard panels. In the middle of each office floor, a central hub is created including a coffee bar, pantry, printing room and meeting area to improve social interaction of the employees. A small office restaurant in fresh blue tones fluidly blends with the office environment and is also to be used for quick meetings. A large void with hanging plants above the entrance connects the ground floor with the first floor where the restaurant is situated.
