Two asset management partners were looking for strategically located office premises to obviate the need to work from home. They soon found what they wanted: the central and readily reachable AccentBusinessPark. The choice was made easy by the combination of the architectural attributes of the new B7 office building and its impressive energy performance.

The two partners add value for their clients by making real estate investments. Trust is a must in their line of work. For the interior architects this was a key consideration when designing the office. The basic idea was to let the rectangular space convey a sense of openness rather than enclosure. A logical choice was to create a homely, inviting atmosphere.

Glass partitions and walnut beams divide up distinct areas. The entrance with washrooms leads to the central area.

System components and indirect lighting have been tucked away in the central area’s ceiling. To the right, behind closed white panels, there are filing cabinets and the copier/coffee corner with kitchenette. Behind another panel is an unobtrusive emergency exit. Although two offices have been segregated, they retain lines of sight thanks to the use of glazing.

A large pivoting door provides access to the conference room that adjoins a patio. There are also a number of workstations. The lighting comes from Kreon, the Eames chairs from Vitra. The luxurious look was completed by incorporating chrome in the detailing. This design adds a professional touch to a homelike interior. A natural extension to this smart design philosophy was to use materials like wool carpeting, to let cabinets run beneath windows in walnut veneer and to blend in some art elements.
