About Sid Lee Office, a project by Space Encounters Office for Architecture
Spilling out of the cubicle onto the flexibly spaced and activity-based working, the open floor makes it really feel like ‘The End of Working’. International branding company Sid Lee commissioned us to renovate and design their Dutch headquarters in an Amsterdam heritage-listed building. As a response we gave them a re-conceptualisation of office working. In this office you do not find a traditional desk, but rather a variety of carefully fabricated charismatic, spatial components that provide anything but an office feeling. All these elements form an extraordinary, joyful composition, yet simultaneously they enhance the monumentality of the existing building.
Employees and visitors are encouraged to work, socialise, meet, eat and play in the ‘Whim Wham Wall’ (a 25x6m sized cabinet), the ‘Oval Office’ (with flexible working dividers), the ‘Precious’ (a golden box with restrooms and stairs), the ‘Glass Cage of Emotions’ (meeting rooms with pivoting cabinets) and the ‘War Room’ (board room with elevating table).
