Project: Renewal Office Building VGS, Ridderkerk, the Netherlands.
Client: Vereninging Gereformeerd Schoolonderwijs.
Facts: Renewal. Office building. Interior. Graphics. Floor area: 1500m2. completed 2014.
After its renewal this office building starts with its 4th life. A nice example of sustainable design, re-use and good maintenance by its users. After realizing a second floor with an bowed aluminum roof in 2000, we were asked in 2011 to reorganize and restyle the interior as well as creating a new entrance with an attractive image. Within the existing building new wardrobes with sanitary, meeting rooms and kitchen are realized. The design pays a lot of attention to the disabled employees. The VGS is a foundation to support reformed Christian education. To express their image we designed a special printed foil glued to the glass panels of the staircase outside. On each panel the whole alphabet is printed emphasizing the clients relation to education. By using different type styles and by accentuating the letters VGS, the organization itself is readable within the graphics in a subtle way.
