Our office really is our business card. We have created a sustainable office that fits our character perfectly – and we did this by working with leading partners.
We believe that an office should reflect what you stand for as a company. We were therefore very pleased to have the opportunity to design the 8th floor of the James Watt building in Amsterdam. You can probably guess how we imagined the office: sustainable and circular down to the tiniest detail. And visible, too, so our visitors can see our character in our surroundings.
We worked hard to put our concept into practice, working together with our architect and the landlord of the building. This started at the very beginning, with an innovative structure for the rent: in cooperation with landlord Cocon Vastgoed, we reached an agreement to pay not per m2, but per occupied workplace (FTE). This approach made the start-up costs clear to us: as we grow, the rent grows with us, so we can better cover the cost. When we reach a certain size, we will be paying slightly more than the current price per m2, resulting in a win-win situation.
We didn’t get everything we wanted, but we are very proud of the result. Why?
Has this inspired you? We have good news: we rent out our office space! We like to share our space with other sustainable entrepreneurs, so we offer workplaces. Contact us if you are interested.
