Status: In Progress
Impact Hub Amsterdam, in its Westerpark location, was designed by us in 2013. Since then, the hub has grown a lot, thanks to its community members and their social impact ventures. As a result, Impact Hub Amsterdam signed a contract with the KIT (The Royal Tropical Institute) to move from its 19th century building in Westerpark to the historical KIT building in Oosterpark.
Through AKKA’s participatory design process, we will represent the Impact Hub Amsterdam community by creating a variety of spaces needed in one big area. The focus of our work is to design a space that can foster interactions needed for social impact. It will be a journey through different spatial experiences, from high level conversation meeting rooms to more cosy spaces for informal meetings, from offices for growing companies to coworking spaces, from event areas to spaces where to relax and focus.
