We have acknowledge the need to redefine alternative systems that are capable to taking us into the future in a more sustainable manner. WeSpace explores today’s new collective mindset which is providing a boost of creativity and community. So what if all the participants in this change could meet and pool their collective energies and resources together? In fact what we’re seeing now is an exciting time of sharing - everything from skills to power tools - and caring. Motivated by the collective potential of sharing space you will find our concerning projects - de Alliantie HQ, De Burgemeester Hoofddorp , Frankemaheerd and Suite 9 - focus on the communal social space.
In the coming years, the 3.5-hectare Lucent site in Hilversum will be transformed into a vibrant new mixed-use residential/commercial development. De Alliantie needed a new headquarters to unite its various regional offices to become more efficient and customer-friendly. Being in good condition the four-storey office building was retained, however, renovations were required for its new function.
The project comprises a new work environment converted from an existing office building that is shared by individual entrepreneurs. The communal nature of this new social work space drives the identity of the new building.
