Ripe NCC, Amsterdam
The Européens Network Coordination Centre (RIPE NCC) is one of five Regional Internet Registries providing Internet resource allocations, registration services and coordination activities that support the operation of the Internet in Europe, Middle East and Asia. The RIPE NCC consists of over 15,000 organisations that act as Local Internet Registries to provide Internet services in their own countries.
Local firm Heyligers Design + Projects recently unveiled the new Amsterdam offices, located in the east wing of the Central Station.
A dynamic buzz surrounds the office right from the start, with a cafeteria (managed by a professional barista) welcoming all the workers.
How do you create a home for 38 different nationalities, such as the ones employed at the RIPE NCC? Heyligers Design + Projects organized the workspace in “neighbourhoods” and based the interior design on a journey through the very same continents. The colorful pathways lead the visitors, while Artigo's Nd/Uni rubber flooring provides the ideal surface for work and relax as well in the whole office, for a total surface of 2200 sqm.
