Interior architecture: consistency in individuality
The architecture, interiors and redesign of Office Beutener are characterized by consistency in individuality. Standard as it can, specifically as it should be. The power of my designs are located in the fact that they are in consultation with the client have been established. I work for Government and Semi Government as RIVM, Ministry of Social Affairs and employment, tax services the Hague and Apeldoorn and NS Poort. I also work for multinational companies, including Philips and Siemens and Professionals like the law firm Baker McKenzie and & bank Merrill Lynch both in Amsterdam. The work is thus very diverse to name a few. In addition, I also experience a lot of fun to making interiors for private individuals.
I am a specialist in the field of high quality interiors for industry associations, such as law firms, banks and multinational corporations, but also for the health and care for the elderly. I am specialist in the new way of working: “Place and time independent works” is central in this office concept. In the new world of work (HNW) have no longer a fixed workplace employees but they can “place and time independent works”. For the different types of work will be created different kinds of workplaces within the buildings. HNW assumes that several types of work can be optimally supported by using different types of workplaces. Play the numbers in such a housing concept, the relationship and distribution of the different types of workplaces a crucial role. It does not concern a zoning of activities in an Office, but a compelling mix of workplaces on the floor spread. In practice, this means that none of the staff has a private workplace. The new way of working is based on properly fitting housing that the goals, ambitions and business processes of the client supports as well as possible. The physical and visible side demands attention, but also invisible elements such as sustainability, environment, safety and health and of course satisfaction are important. The work environment (workplace) is an important fringe benefit that meets the objectives of a client contribution.
In recent years there has been much focus on sustainability. At the two renovation projects for the tax office was recycling of materials a hot issue. In particular at the tax office, which is still in progress haaglanden Prinsenhof is reuse of 70% of all existing materials might be needed. Yet here a really OGH Office realized.
