SHARE, Park 20|20 Beukenhorst Zuid, Hoofddorp, The Netherlands
Designed for energetic startups and companies, Share is a creative workplace hub located at our Cradle to Cradle-inspired Park 20|20 in the Netherlands. Offering an abundance of shared smart working facilities, the building floorplates accommodate both smaller start-ups and mid-size companies. Flexibility in floorplate and systems layout allow companies to expand or consolidate over time while providing shared spaces to collaborate, communicate, contemplate and concentrate.
The exterior reflects the diversity of companies occupying the building through colored vertical fins that provide shade as well as a playful interplay of daylight and shadow on the aluminum façade. A vertical vegetated wall in the atrium purifies air while also mitigating noise, improving acoustic quality and connecting occupants to the outdoors. Meanwhile, the exterior serves as an extension of interior workspaces, providing landscaping with attention to the well-being of birds and butterflies. The building connects to Park 20I20’s central heat and cold storage wells, utilizing water to deliver heating and cooling.
Like all buildings at Park 20|20, Share is conceived as a ‘materials bank’ and is designed for disassembly, enabling materials to be harvested and reused in the future. Cradle to Cradle Certified™ materials are used where possible.
