Spilling out of the cubicle onto the open floor, flexibly spaced and activity-based working really feels like ‘The End of Working’. International branding company Sid Lee commissioned us to renovate and design their Dutch headquarters in an Amsterdam heritage-listed building. We gave them a reconceptualisation of office working.

Sid Lee Office

In this Sid Lee branch you don’t find a traditional desk on the whole ground floor. On this floor a variety of carefully fabricated charismatic, spatial components provide anything but an office feeling. All these elements form an extraordinary, joyfull composition. Simultaniously they enchance the monumentallity of the existing building.
