The design of the office had to match ING’s work philosophy; meeting, connecting and creativity. Numerous open spaces that can be used multifunctionally and also easily remodelled for a different purpose. The design, the work of Hofman Dujardin architects, elaborated on this theme by creating numerous open-plan offices and work areas on the upper floors and connecting them to each other via staircases.
Due to the open-plan nature of the design, the acoustics required careful consideration. The client also wanted to create a green and natural setting and achieve BREEAM Outstanding sustainability certification.
The copious use of oak for the interior, acoustic walls and the many planters filled with trees and plants created a natural and calm mood.
