Discovery Network Benelux Office by DZAP, Amsterdam – The Netherlands

January 6th, 2017 by retail design blog

DZAP has designed the new offices of Discovery Network Benelux located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. DZAP designed a whole new light, transparent and flexible office interior 600m2. By replacing some dense fire resistant walls for glass versions the sightlines run clearly from the entrance all the way to the back of the office which creates an ultimate feeling of transparency and lightness.

The choice of, for example, the (studio) spotlights as lighting refers to the core business of Discovery and also emphasizes the link with the raw industrial character of the building. The deliberately chosen floor-finish is a reflection of the concrete ceiling and contributes to a better acoustic climate.

Next to the bar where a Friday afternoon drink can take place, there is also a relax area in the form of a living room with sofa’s and of course a game computer. The lunch room is easily converted into a place where parties and gatherings can be organized. In this way the office fulfills the multi-purpose need of Discovery.
