The design is the result of a public tender. Cepezed, Rijnboutt and Fokkema & Partners are responsible for the design in construction-combination R Creators with Strukton Worksphere, Ballast Nedam and Facilicom. The team transformed a formerly closed military compound into a transparent, daylight flood, contemporary state office building. The Dutch Government Real Estate Agency awarded R Creators with the DBFMO contract in 2015.
Winning the FRAME Award for the interior of a state office, feels like an amazing tribute to the way the complexities of the brief have been translated to answer to all stakeholders while making a self-evident and appealing design. A design that optimally supports and inspires the people working at ‘de Knoop’ and appeals to our colleagues and the design-loving audience of FRAME.
