Aristo Meeting Centers offers high quality service orientated and reliable meeting-, training and conference spaces. What is the best way in which Aristo can keep on offering its future guests an experience which is both practical to use? This provocative question, stimulated Sandenburg to develop, design and implement a new concept for Aristo.
Working intensely together with the client, the team organized the vision development, ideation process, branding & identity and spatial design, leading up to the building and implementation. The new concept was realized as a pilot in the Aristo location in Amsterdam Sloterdijk.
The result is that the exterior of the building has been greatly improved, from the viewpoint of guests arriving at the public transport hub Sloterdijk. A brand new entrance was added, including an ascent. The old entrance was moved, and the facade got an inviting pent. The glass facade was made more transparent, enhancing the attractiveness for the users of the site as well as the visitors in the region.
Behind the facade there is a completely new ground floor. The company vision eat, drink, work, do, meet, be was seamlessly integrated in the various spaces. The Amsterdam Sloterdijk location offers all the facilities to work, meet and congregate in compact meeting rooms. In a more quiet part of the ground floor a lockable area was developed, especially focused on the demands and wishes of business to business users. A special Work & Play was realized to cater for guests who care for more relaxation and motion in the facilities they use.
“It’s certainly led to increased bookings. Our metamorphosis contributed substantially to our improved market image. Our employees greatly enjoy working in their new environment, too.”
René Steenbakkers, managing director Aristo Meeting Center
