Respect for the surroundings
Van Zandvoort Legal moved to the stately Bergoss office in Oss. This required informed choices with respect to colours, materials, furniture and decoration. The wall-sized photos invoke an atmosphere of nostalgia, while the large areas of warm colour provide a feeling of safety in these bright and high spaces. So the design does justice to the client's identity as well as the manner in which these premises have been renovated!
Who’s afraid of yellow and green?
De postBode is a company with a social conscience. In the new business premises attention to detail and transparency are pivotal. I was able to reflect that philosophy in the interior; a bespoke post room, and I helped seek out appropriate materials and drew the entire lay-out. Note the interplay with the house style colours.
Interwoven with the past
Hotel de Weverij created a new wing under the shed roofs of the old Bergoss carpet factory, with twelve design rooms, a gym and a wine cellar. Inspired by the history and style of the restaurant, I interwove industrial austerity with refined materials and details.
Sleep in Style
The very enthusiastic responses on the Bergoss rooms made Hotel de Weverij decide to give two floors of the existing building a big makeover. Briefing: create a surprising ambience within the rigid rules of a hotelroom layout. I opted for blow-ups of the old carpet factory and made the back wall and desk asymmetrical, thus lending the space an entirely different ambience. In doing so we’ve already created a purple and yellow floor.
Van Zandvoort Legal is no run of the mill law firm. It was looking for a pleasant working space in which to personally welcome clients. Hence the honest, warm materials, with a focus of course on ergonomics, efficiency and acoustics. The green in the house style lends a fresh emphasis and contributes to the sympathetic-corporate look & feel.
From bar to lounge
In line with the new wing and the renovation of the hotel rooms, the bar at De Weverij was also given a facelift. The brief: more connection and class, in line with the standard of the restaurant and hotel. Over and above new furniture I opted for striking colours and lighting, in addition to the whimsical Extremis Sticks used as space dividers.
CAD Accent asked me to design the existing office. I started with the accessories and decor, by making the technical setting quite a bit friendlier. The most striking exploits: the wall visuals and acoustic panels in warm, striking colours.
