  • Space Refinery created a bright and warm space for the Crosspoint Solutions offices in Kontich, Belgium.

    By aligning their team and sister companies in a shared goal to reinvent their existing office, Crosspoint Solutions brought new energy and purpose into their workspace.

    Crosspoint Solutions is a data company with a heart for people and innovative technologies. As one of the largest incubators in Belgium, they host more than 50 centers of expertise that provide their customers with innovative and quality solutions.

    The Challenge
    Crosspoint is an umbrella for daughter companies, so there are no core team members. However, all the brands have a flat structure and teams often intersect and work together.

    Their primary goal was to find a new office, but after two or three years of searching, they didn’t find anything they liked. Eventually, because of COVID, they decided to reinvent the current office and transform it into a welcoming space where people can meet, work together and share ideas. They also wanted to create a more inviting and inspiring office space to help them attract talent.

    The Outcome
    Changing things starts with having everyone on board. We launched a couple of surveys and hosted engaging workshops to understand the needs of team members.

    We wanted to optimize the existing space as much as possible. Integrating spaces designated for different needs was one of the priorities. New phone booths, meeting rooms, and separate offices allow employees to collaborate, focus or relax – without disturbing others. Adding plants and an aquarium created a feeling of nature that uplifted the workspace. We also included a gaming room where team members can play table football to have a little bit of fun during their breaks. The kitchen was extended into a multipurpose area where people could eat, work, and socialize.
