‘A unique collaboration of multiple architects and design firms’
The new urban campus of Booking.com opened its doors in Amsterdam. A unique collaboration of multiple architects and design firms has resulted in an inclusive workplace that is home to over 6,500 employees. The brand new working environment offers a diverse variety of spaces. The building itself was designed by UNStudio, as lead interior architect HofmanDujardin designed an interior masterplan for the 65,000m² campus building. The headquarters combine the work of multiple international design firms, together they created an inspiring environment where employees and visitors will meet, collaborate, live, work and play.
‘referencing modern food production with vertical farming’
Amongst others, local firm i29 designed various breakout spaces as well as restaurant High Garden on the 9th floor overlooking the city of Amsterdam, where fresh herbs are grown and used for healthy dishes.
‘nature and technology’
The designers at i29 questioned the relationship between nature and technology, referencing modern food production with vertical farming, and with a food wall serving healthy ‘Fastbowls’ – a playful wink to the Dutch ‘automatiek’ (fast food wall). Pink lighting and stainless steel were used for the ‘kitchen laboratory’ contrasting with natural bamboo and lush greenery in a 900m2 restaurant and rooftop garden.
Designed to connect people and places, the novel campus is a real destination with a rich diversity of spaces that aims to create a vibrant inclusive community. Filled with lush green plants and awarded with a BREEAM excellent certificate, the office is also a front-runner in sustainability. It offers a great working environment for Booking.com and provides the company with a new home in the heart of Amsterdam.
