- STUDIO HELDERGROEN
Multifunctional studio in Droste silo Haarlem
- On a weekday morning, the ground floor of the Droste silo is empty... At nine o’ clock the big tables with computers slowly descend. A fresh new day begins!
At the end of the day the workstations disappear back into the ceiling. The space is ready for another purpose: a lecture, a dinner, a party, a promotion of a new product, an exhibition or an evening Yoga class ... Studio Heldergroen is in our view the example to think about the possibilities for other buildings of dual use of (mostly empty) office space...
- Three tables can be hoisted individually, which makes sure the space can be used flexible in daytimes and anticipates on several occupancies. The most offices are used only 40 hours a week, but in the interior of studio Heldergroen the possibilities for evening and weekend activities are considerably increased: Tables being pulled up in the evening creates the possibility to let out the space for all kinds of different inspiring initiatives: from trading lady clothing to biological wine tasting. Besides the new possible activities, the hoisted tables also provides the ideal burgling prevention.
