The first of the series of projects executed for the Reaktor Amsterdam team, the design of their main space in WeWork Metropool is a great introduction to the needs of a fast growing, innovative company. We and Reaktor learned together the value of thoughtful design as they grew and fought to attract the most talented employees. In the daily work of the Reaktor Amsterdam team, the comfort and happiness of the employees was of primary concern, and became our greatest concern, as well.
At the time, they were new to Amsterdam, beginning to grow, and needed an upgrade to a larger more comfortable space in WeWork. The space required simple solutions, but even in a small team, there is a variety of types of work and needs. The basics of the space were the desk area, entry lounge and meeting room. Complete with vintage and second hand furnishings, and IKEA hacks the space came together quickly and superbly. After the space was complete, the team continued to grow so small pieces were added and updated as the other projects with Reaktor progressed.
