Under Sandenburg Concept Creations

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

6000 m2


Event and flexworking space

The Brief

  • Transform Aristo's traditional premises to meet modern demans     
  • Creating a concept that could compete with co-working offerings like Spaces & WeWork
  • Full design development from Food Service & Hospitality concept to technical drawing package

My Role

  • Looking after a project started by another designer                           
  • Specifying suitable finishes to match design intent                       
  • Overseeing budget development and furniture tender package 
  • Guiding the client team through the final stages of the design process 
  • On-site presence & design supervision


This project and rejuvenation of the Aristo project is a great example  of how modern commercial clients aim to become multi-faceted, searching for resillience through variety in users and revenue. In the changing economy, Aristo have taken the step to include a whole new segment of clientele; the individual flex worker. Their Sloterdijk site not only includes the original core business of rentable classrooms and seminar space, but a cafĂ© and restaurant which invites freelancers and remote workers to work from their space for free. A variety of let-by-the-hour meeting rooms are available to anybody, and no membership is required. Their step into this segment of course increases their resilience in most economic climates.
