  • Ninetynine has recently designed the new Benelux Headquarters offices of fast-growing media company VICE Media located in Amsterdam.

    Commissioned by Amsterdam developer and investor Millten, Ninetynine designed the new head office of VICE Media Benelux. VICE Media is one of the fastest growing young media brands worldwide. The new offices are located in a former bank building on the Reguliersdwarsstraat in Amsterdam and will accommodate over 50 employees.

    The basement and ground floor of the four-storey building have been developed as general spaces including the reception, boardroom, chill-out, play-room and a studio which can be closed off from the rest of the space with a glass garage door. These areas have been opened up completely to create optimal transparency.

    The other levels have been kept as open as possible with the exception of two central blocks: one block that includes the stairwell and lift, and one that accommodates the sanitary facilities. The open areas have been set up as work spaces with large multiform tables that are shared by the employees. The meeting rooms have been separated from the general areas by means of glass walls. The third floor features eight editing suites.
