Our new Amsterdam studio repositions our team for growth and elevates the space in every aspect, reflecting our unique culture, innovation and values.
Amsterdam is seen as a central global destination and following exponential growth in the Netherlands, Unispace made the decision to not only invest in the team, but also our studio presence.
Nestled between Oud-Zuid and Zuid near Vondelpark, we’re in a great position alongside clients in a central, modern part of the city.
The prestigious Parnassus Tower is next to a canal, making it the perfect Amsterdam location, and in line with our theme of Unispace studios with waterside vistas. An enviable location that provides serenity within an urban environment.
Our vision was to create a warm, welcoming space to host colleagues and clients from around the world. A destination workplace with an enhanced studio experience that feels approachable and reflective of the local Dutch culture.
To support company culture, the floorplate needed to consist of multi-functional spaces with flexible, dynamic arrangements to cater to every task and enable opportunities to cross-collaborate.
Spaces for everyone
The entire office is flexible and welcoming for visitors to drop by and work like a local. Designed for agile working and to work from anywhere, each area has a different purpose:
- Winter Garden: a dedicated workspace for employees.
Karaoke Room: for larger team meetings and socializing, with a disco ball-esque pendant light.
- Library Nook: encourages quiet focus work and offers a closed space where teams can meet.
Day Bed: a mindfulness room to relax and unwind.
- Event Space: completely flexible furniture for town hall meetings, yoga sessions, team meetings, academy training, and external client meetings
Locally influenced design
Dark green flooring and accessories reflect the fishing houses seen throughout the Netherlands, mixed with soft beige to represent the sand dykes that keep the country liveable.
Hints of tan leather and orange terrazzo flecks give a nod to the Dutch colour, evoking the rich history of Willem van Oranje, as well as touches of maroon that tie back to the rich history of jewels and gold belonging to the Netherlands’ royal family.
Planting was integral to creating a warm, homely feel. We used natural, native plants such as liquorice (a common plant used in tea drops — a Dutch favourite) and many types of grass, heides, pods and seeds that are commonly seen in the countryside.
