Back to office: Enginia opens its doors with a new interior

On behalf of Enginia, Muurbloem design studio has given the office building of Enginia a completely new look. Muurbloem has closely aligned the interior with Enginia's corporate identity, so that employees feel comfortable and inspired in their working environment every day.

Enginia defines itself as 'one stop shop for the technological sector and the manufacturing industry'. The company supports organizations in the field of innovation, among other things, in which putting software in order is the most important. The office building consists of three spaces: a multifunctional space (training and events) and two work spaces. Muurbloem designed the interior of all three spaces, as well as the entrance of the building. The multifunctional space with the large bar table and the seating area enhances the sense of gathering and stimulates connection, which also makes the space suitable for events.


Special designed for this project:

Back wall: wall behind the bar table with the Enginia logo 
Sliding wall: wall with design between the training rooms





Back to office: what does all this involve?


Creative director Gonnette Smits from Muurbloem design studio answers questions. 


What is the main difference between working from home and working in the office? 
Working from home blurs the line between work and private life. This can be an advantage in certain phases of life, for example if you have a family. You can work efficiently and task-oriented. However, you don't have colleagues around you with whom you can spar and get inspired by. Creativity is less stimulated. This also brings us to the biggest advantage of working on location: creativity and innovation are more in motion on the work floor! 

How can an environment contribute to a good workflow?
It is very important to cultivate a culture in the workplace in which all employees experience freedom of movement. By this I mean that different spatial layouts must be present; a place to meet or have duo conversations, a place to work independently and a place to brainstorm and create, for example. Everything that is needed for this must be present in these places; think of computers, inspiration material and other facilities.


Besides the work culture, what is important in a workplace? 
The entrance is undeniably important. How you walk into a place determines how you look at a company or building. Are you received by someone? How are your senses stimulated and how do you get a clear picture of the place? The entrance is the face of your company. It gives a picture of its health and culture.


How does Muurbloem contribute to a good working environment? 

For example, Muurbloem realized an interior project in 2021 at Enginia, a company that stimulates innovation and technology by supporting others in this. Enginia has three spaces; a common room, a meeting room and a workspace. Muurbloem designed these spaces and the entrance of the building. Now that Enginia is running at full speed on location again, meeting and inspiration are very important and the design contributes enormously to this.
