Head Office Brandloyalty

NetherlandsNetherlandsCompany Name : MB afbouwmontage B.V.

Project description

The prominent building is situated in the city centre of Den Bosch. Formerly very desolate looking, this building has undergone a transformation to achieve a completely new modern look. It now accommodates the Head Office of the company BrandLoyalty. The result of the interior construction of this striking building is particularly impressive because of the high degree of difficulty of the design and the high level of finishing. The lines of all the complicated forms are executed very sharply and all interiors have been perfectly finished with no irregularities. During the construction process the building was fully stripped. Only the concrete structure remained. From there, the building was completely renovated and fitted with new facades, roofs and interior finishes. Major challenges included the tightness of the double curved surface of the stairs, the beautiful and tasteful details such as the wooden inner shell of the stairs, and the glass connections on the balustrades.
