Combiwerk Delft est une compagnie qui emploie des personnes atteintes de déficiences physiques ou mentales. Imaginé par les architectes d'intérieur de l'agence i29 et par le studio VMX Architects, leur nouveau siège reflète cette culture positive et sociale.
Ouvert, graphique, haut en couleur et sobre malgré un budget limité, le projet s'étend sur 8500m2 et se compose d'un espace d'accueil, de bureaux, d'un restaurant et de salles de réunion.
L'agence i29 précise:
"People with disabilities are often pigeon-holed. Such a ‘box’ is only a part of the story and often there are many nuances. Based on this ‘theme’ the custom-designed furniture contains many ‘boxes’ in various colour nuances and variation possibilities, together with the angular carpets, they form colourful islands in an otherwise grey world. A social workplace must be social; that was the point of departure for all the parties involved. Social involvement was therefore the main theme in the design and realization on various levels. At the level of the design, we aimed for empowerment by creating a serious and distinguished interior. In terms of sustainability, where possible, we aimed for recycling and re-use. All the wooden chairs in the atrium were bought second-hand and are restored by a colleague SW company. Also the furniture for the 4000m2 office space, including desks, chairs, cabinets and filing drawers was bought secondhand, restored and customized to the new colourscheme."
