Perpetuo Amstelveen

synergy through seeming contradiction

Proof was invited by Kronenburg VOF to propose a design vision for a new office location at Amstelveen Kronenburg. Proof operated on the edge of the projectbrief and proposed an endless vibrant community with offices and studenthousing in which synergy, knowledge sharing, flexibility and community is put first. The entanglement of students and office workers turned out to be an interesting opportunity for sharing. From the level of a laundry, to the sharing of knowledge and until the perfectly symbiotic energy-demands. Runner up…no win….still proud!
