Designed as offices and commercial spaces for creative industries, the Matchbox is the work of design team Allard Meine Jansen and ‘houses twenty-two corporate units, a rooftop restaurant and semi-underground parking in the artistic hub of Amsterdam North’. The building’s shape was derived from piling boxes of matchbox on top of each other [see the photo below] and has been conceptualized to give every company its own space and identity. In addition, ‘bridges constructed above a central atrium garden act as catalyst for the networking between companies, while distributing sunlight through the building’.
