NATIONALE NEDERLANDEN HEAD OFFICE


Nationale Nederlanden wants to make financial services more personal and relevant to its customers. That starts with a good and inspiring workplace. The NN Way of working supports individual work and collaboration, creating solutions, welcoming guests, meeting colleagues, celebrating successes and having pleasant working days.

ZENBER Architecten designed the complete interior for various parts and departments of the NN Group. ZENBER was asked for the locations Delftse Poort in Rotterdam and the Haagse poort in The Hague.

INNOVATIVE WORKSPACE HEAD OFFICE THE HAGUE

The innovative working environment is based on an activity-related workplace concept. Together with the agile way of working, this requires a great diversity and diversity in the type of workstations. In addition to facilitating these workflows, ZENBER has also designed the company restaurant with roof terrace, reception areas, lounges, scrum rooms, brainstorming rooms, project rooms and meeting rooms.

“Agile working and scrum”

AGILE WORKING AND SCRUMMING

Stand-up rooms and tribune rooms are used for the day start, (short) presentations, demos and daily stand ups. Brainstorming takes place in special rooms where whiteboards, scrum walls and LCD screens hang that support the brainstorming sessions. The landing areas are spacious tables for a combination of individual work and collaboration. The concentration areas are located in the quiet zone. In this open zone, the acoustics are excellent due to the fabric walls. This allows you to focus longer on your work. In the call centres extra attention has been paid to the acoustics. Here are acoustic screens installed between the desks.

MEETING AND RELAXATION

Meeting and working together starts in the coffee corners. A beautiful wooden table with good coffee forms the space. Narrowcasting screens show the latest news. The coupés workstations are located near the coffee corners. These are perfect for individual work, collaboration and short consultations. There is also always an integrated screen on which you can easily share the right information with your colleagues. Sport and relaxation are just as important as work. That is why the offices of Nationale Nederlanden also have sports and relaxation areas.

VITAL AND GREEN

The office wings are efficient and compact. Short walking lines and sightlines make the design clear and convenient for employees. The workstations have views of plants and greenery in the large hanging gardens. The furniture is circular and made of recyclable and sustainable materials.
