Euronext Amsterdam is the Dutch exchange, which is part of Euronext NV, the leading pan-European exchange in the Eurozone with alsmost 1.300 quoted companies. Euronext applies a federal marktet model and operates in p.e. Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon, London and Paris. The office is located on Beursplein 5 in Amsterdam, in the monumental building from 1912 designed by the well-known architect Joseph Cuypers. The EMS (Euronext Market Services) department ensures a fair and orderly conduct of the exchange. We were asked to reorganize their complex way of working located on the attic of the building. Because of the existing construction we designed a compact and efficient shape (“the snake”) in where the analyst do there focused work. We made a new interpretation of the original building style by reusing patterns, using derivative colours and modernise old materials. Even though the client wanted a WOW-factor when you enter the EMS area, we created a calm environment for the employees who are working under great pressure.
