Heldergroen Offices by Zecc Architects

Great open and bright project in Haarlem, Netherlands by Zecc Architects:

“On the ground Floor of the old Droste Silo a creative communication office called Heldergroen is housed. In between a solid concrete structure we designed a flexible office concept where the industrial character melts in with the ultimate flexible interior. Every day the wooden tables (made by old telephone poles) are towed by large industrial motors to the ceiling, which gives the opportunity to use the area different after working time and in the weekends: expositions can be held, clinics, courses or maybe a good party.

The used materials refer to the old industrial atmosphere in the building and on the quay. The transparent façade gives the office a good exposure and a good view to the old city centre. The closed side of the area is used as a facility-wall. All the supporting functions (toilet, copy area) are shaped in a sculptural white wall made by waltzed steel car doors. Every evening the tables and the computers disappear in the white acoustic ceiling landscape with Led lighting. Only the chairs on the black concrete floor reminds of a hard working day…”
