Interior design for NN Group head office

Zenber Architecten as Architects

The NN way of working provides support in working individually and collaboratively, creating solutions, receiving guests, meeting colleagues, celebrating successes and gaining full enjoyment from work.  ZENBER Architecten designed the complete interior for various divisions and departments in the NN Group like the Delftse Poort location in Rotterdam, the Haagse Poort in The Hague and Toorop Building in Amsterdam. 

NN Group is an insurance and asset management company. They are committed to helping their customers secure their financial futures, offering retirement services, insurance, investments and banking products.

The values of NN are: We care - We are clear - We commit.
For the interior design assignment these values have been translated into:
•          Care: It’s not an office, but a pleasant, healthy and inspiring work environment.
•          Clear: The way the building is experienced as you go through it is literally and figuratively accessible.
•          Commit: Upon entering the building there is already an atmosphere of innovation and meeting.

Innovative Workspace
The innovative working environment is based on an activity-related workplace concept. This, combined with the agile approach to work, calls for a high level of diversity and variety in the type of workspaces. In addition to facilitating these workflows, ZENBER also designed the company restaurant with roof terrace, reception areas, lounges, scrum rooms, brainstorming rooms, project areas and conference rooms.

Agile work and scrums
Stand-up rooms and areas with tiered seating are used for the morning kick-off, brief presentations, and daily stand-up meetings. There are special rooms for brainstorming with whiteboards, scrum walls and LCD screens to support the sessions. The touchdown spaces feature large tables to enable a combination of individual work and collaboration. Calm zones provide for concentration and focus.

The open zone has excellent acoustics thanks to the fabric panelling on the walls.

Meeting and relaxation
The coffee corners offer a first opportunity for meeting and collaboration. Coupé workstations are located close to the coffee corners and are perfectly suited for individual work, collaboration and brief meetings. Sport and relaxation are just as important as work, which is why the Nationale-Nederlanden offices also feature sport and relaxation rooms.

Sustainable and green
Short walking routes and sight lines ensure the design is clear and easy to follow for staff. The workspaces have a view of plants and greenery in the large hanging indoor gardens. The furniture is circular and made from recyclable and sustainable materials.
