Spaces Vijzelstraat by SevilPeach Architecture + Design
Spaces wanted to develop a new concept for a creative and inspiring co-working environment, with an emphasis on a personalised, homely environment that encouraged interaction and collaboration between tenants. Communal areas occupy ground and first floors, while private offices are placed on the levels above.
The building was stripped to its original concrete shell unveiling an impressive structure with 5m ceiling heights. Two voids were introduced, creating strong visual links and a dynamic, further animated by a lighting installation.
Inspired by the 70m external colonnades, each bay and activity are highlighted with various colours and materials. These dynamic scenarios at the street front create a vitrine that expresses Spaces brand identity.
The ground floor houses the ever-important café as the heart of the building.
Above, a variety of meeting suites surround the main void; Therefore creating a gallery to display artwork.
The textures aim to soften the bare concrete structure. The interruption of coloured tiles is used as a place-making tool to identify specific areas. Velvet curtains hang between hard columns while heavy grained solid wood pieces give further warmth.
The co-working, social and meeting places are gifted by natural light, either enjoying busy street or green garden views, making Work additionally pleasant.
