Rabobank Stad en midden Groningen in Groningen

SKETS architectuurstudio as Architects

The Rabobank Stad en midden Groningen operates from the headquarters located in the city of Groningen. It is a bank which has always had strong relations with it's users and tries to maintain these connections. The office building in which the headquarters is located has public functions on the ground floor and office space on the other 5 floors. The interior of the office was outdated and unsuited for the contemporary work environment the Rabobank aspires. For the Rabobank there are certain area's to which they feel a strong connection, these are: care, energy, agriculture, education and shipping. These theme's can be found on each individual floor, with each floor portraying it's own unique identity. Sustainability is a key factor for the Rabobank Groningen which lead to the reuse of all the window frames from the previous interior as well as most of the furniture. The layout of the floors is an open plan with enclosed spaces designated for meeting and concentration. At the entrance of every floor is a pantry/meeting element were informal meetings can take place. The routing on the workspace takes you past different gradients of concentration and enclosure, offering multiple working environments within each floor. Services such as a restaurant and large meeting spaces have been incorporated within the building.
