In the former headquarters of IBM in Amsterdam-Nieuw-West, B.Amsterdam is developing a new office concept : shared co-working spaces combined with private offices as well as event spaces and a communal roof garden and restaurant provide a 24h working environment for young entrepreneurs from all sorts of industries. Within this ecosystem of work and play,the ‘brainstormroom’ is designed to function as a multifonctional space for up to 30 people in many different configurations : official presentations, creative meetings, work-sessions and even socialising.

The design looks for the common denominator in what is usually considered as ‘professional’ or as ‘leisury’ use and is adaptable according to the desired use. By the means of a simple hand-operated pulley, an informal stand-up desk is transformed into a meeting table with overhead lighting. Moveable furniture can transform the intimate central seating into a small amphitheatre for presentations or group sessions.

All built in plywood, the Brainstormroom thus becomes a multifunctional and adaptable space, able to accomodate all aspects of today’s work environment.
