we develop them in architecture, interior design, urban development and brand development.
concrete unites people.
we work with a team of 46 multidisciplinary creatives as architects, interior designers and visual marketeers to help businesses and institutions.
concrete loves provoking, confusing, philosophizing, scale models, haute cuisine, burgers, and (most of all) shattering dogmas.
concrete provides solutions.
no grand theories or abstract ideas. just things that work.
concrete likes to let the work do the talking.
The terminal building of Schiphol Airport consists of
corridors and traffic areas. In contrast, concrete
decided to design an area without corridors, in which
each square metre provides a high-quality experience.
From an operational point-of-view the lounge offers the
possibility to enter and leave the area from the land
side and the airside. These entrances were the biggest
design issue, because they were situated in complete
opposite corners of the existing structural shell. Crossing
from one entrance to the other, visitors walk through
three connecting lounges. These three lounges form the
aorta of the VIP centre, surrounded by other smaller
lounges. Except from the glass walls, each lounge has
been given its own identity, partly to address the different
functional demands, partly to give the frequent visitor the
opportunity to experience different atmospheres.
