From the outside, this 92 metre tall insurance company head office would seem to be just one more in the series of Bonnema office buildings. It shows his familiar repertoire of abstract main shapes and geometric systems of proportion wielded to perfection in both the architecture and the response to the setting. More arresting than this, however, is the layout of the office floors. Here, rather than being permanently allotted workstations or rooms, employees choose the space they need at the time, whether it be a hermetically sealed work cell, a place in a communal workspace, a meeting room or an interview room.
