An old factory is converted into a lab and salon with restaurant, flexible work space and rooftop atelier.
A new work and meeting concept is being developed for the Ruyterkade (next to central station) in Amsterdam. Bright New House is the place where radical innovators converge. It is a working environment, lab and salon where individuals and groups collaborate. Together they develop new strategies, concepts and projects that contribute to solving todays and tomorrows societal challenges.
A new ground floor restaurant is connected to the first floor lounge and workspace. The roof is transformed by adding a lightweight steel and glass atelier that penetrates the structure linking the third and rooftop levels with large voids. The glass chimney is used to create natural ventilation and passive cooling in the summer and gives this small structure it’s iconic value.
