Klaprozenweg - Municipality Amsterdam
The goal the municipality of Amsterdam has with its current housing policy is one that seeks to find attractive, efficient and environmentally friendly homes for civil servants. To realize this, the municipality has created a policy in which there are two bigger ‘head locations’ and a number of smaller locations throughout the city.

This general area has a number of facilities like a semi-public plaza which has the aesthetic of a grand café, housing diverse meeting places. Social contact is key in the plaza; one can order a quality cup of coffee during a meeting here. This area hosts a catering facility as well, and some locations now have service points for the operational management cluster.
The plaza and superflexzone have been designed in such a way that there is a logical change from the busier parts of the building to the quieter areas with flexible workplaces.
The conference center is meant to be used for formal meetings and has a representative appearance. When reserving a conference room, one can opt for catering and audiovisual tools.
Employees can choose to work on their own, arrange meetings formal and informal, or focus on group work for a longer period of time; the large scale of possible workplaces has realized this vision. The realized workplaces have been properly insulated. The spaces have pleasant acoustics as well as a comfortable climate; this counts for both individual and group workplaces.
The staircase has been designed in such a manner that it invites the visitor to be active, and leads to the upper parts of the building. One floor discerns itself by the robust, centrally-placed block in which several conference rooms have been incorporated. Several workplaces have been situated around this block as well.
