Space Encounters uses soft partitions to divide spacious Flowpolis office in Amsterdam



Translucent curtains and rows of white columns help to divide but not segment this real-estate office in Amsterdam, designed by local studio Space Encounters.
Space Encounters created the space within Tripolis, an Aldo Van Eyck-designed office complex characterised by faceted towers and primary-coloured windows.

Located in the bustling borough of Amsterdam-Zuid, the 550 square-metre workspace, named Flowpolis, provides a home for property developer Flow Real Estate.
The challenge for the architects was to divide up the generously sized office without losing the sense of spaciousness. They did this with a mix of open walls and moveable, translucent curtains.

"[Space] is a rare occurrence in offices nowadays, where it seems a race to the bottom has started when it comes to the amount of square metres per person," explained the studio. "So to keep the office's large scale noticeable but incorporate levels of intimacy at the same time, we assigned each space its own identity and divided them using semi-transparent curtains."

Employees enter the office via a cerulean-blue walkway, illuminated by LED strip lighting incorporated along the ceiling line and the floor. A curtain of plastic flaps, akin to what could be seen in an industrial factory, is suspended at the end.
"The tunnel functions as a mental reset: it encapsulates the visitor and frames the entrance of the office with vibrant tones of colour and light," said the architects.
