Simmons & Simmons Offices – Amsterdam

  • Client Simmons & Simmons,
  • size 48,438 sqft
  • Year 2019
  • Location Amsterdam, Netherlands,
  • Industry Law Firm / Legal Services,
  • DZAP has completed the office design for global legal practice, Simmons & Simmons, located in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

    The Simmons & Simmons office no longer fulfilled the purpose for which it was intended. After considering various scenarios, the decision was taken to reduce the office space by about 10% (from 5,000 m2 to 4,540 m2) and fit out the entire office with a new interior to prepare it for the future.

    DZAP designed the new interior, managed the project and carried out the renovation.

    Throughout the renovation Simmons & Simmons continued to work in the office. To minimise disruptions for the employees and complete the project as quickly as possible, we drew up an efficient plan for a phased move, with an overflow area to be used as a swing space. This kept the number of moves required to a minimum. We were also able to largely prevent noise nuisance by carrying out heavy work, such as drilling and chasing, during the evening and at night.

    The final result is a modern, timeless office interior that is welcoming for guests and serves as a perfect working environment for Simmons & Simmons.
