Surface: 9.500 m2
A human connection
Opposite of the AMC hospital in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, the new Home Ground of uniQure unites all of uniQure departments under one roof. In total more than 9,000 m2 office space has been transformed into offices, cleanrooms and laboratory areas. uniQure has chosen to implement D/DOCK’s Healing Office concept. D/DOCK is responsible for the design and the design management.
This relocation represents a new step for uniQure, global leader in gene therapy development. Creating a healthy and human working environment was central in the redevelopment, which is why uniQure decided to apply the Healing Offices concept onto their new building.
Rather than building rooms with doors, we created a landscape of dividing elements, generating a sense of protection and focus. Since we separated the areas following its different dynamics, a mutual respect for each others concentration now exists.
By offering different typologies for concentration work, touch-down and team related work we generated a sense of ownership and personal control, reducing stress impact. An own desk with personal space carries ones personal atmosphere, yet part of the designed total.
