The Dura Vermeer Inspiration Centre ( also called ‘De Verbinding’) has been completely designed as a professional, contemporary networking place where co-creation, collaboration, talent pooling, and learning from each other are central. The green brasserie and the impressive auditorium with a 4-story green wall focuses was designed for meeting, inspiration, and connection. The indoor garden, the high green wall and many plants contribute to oxygen-rich air.


The office meets the BREEAM Excellent performance requirements and has intensive green on the inside, as well as a beautiful large garden on the roof that enhances the green character of the building.
