From a personal spot to a collaborative space
“This design can only be done in Amsterdam. It’s quirky, special and would misfit anywhere else in the world. This needs to be a celebration for all parties involved.”
Yury Belyaev, Chief Administrative Officer, VP of Finance and Legal @ JetBrains
JetBrains wanted furniture for their first temporary Dutch office on Amsterdam’s Keizersgracht that would move with them to a new permanent location on Huidekoperstraat.
Circularity was paramount in the process. We achieved this using 80% reclaimed furniture and sourced sustainable options for new pieces (pet felt seats, eco-certified fabrics, recycled polyester and more).
Breaking away from the more traditional setup of an office, the space’s layout creates a free flow between many different interconnected areas, without the use of corridors but instead through a series of ‘ensuite’ spaces. It features a combination of closed private team rooms, hybrid collaborative spaces, concentration rooms, knowledge niches, breakout and bleisure facilities. Our team incorporated vintage items and authentic pieces which give the spaces a one-of-a-kind character.
The B.I.T (Boost Individual Talent) stations
These workstations were specially designed and engineered for the JetBrains engineering teams. Highly skilled developers need an environment that focuses their mental state of mind and boosts concentration, whilst also offering them the opportunity to break out and use the work environment as if it’s their own home. The B.I.T stations create a personal domain with high protection from external stimuli, security of sensitive data, and they’re also customisable.
