Designing from the inside out
Big Dutchman's decision to create its Asian headquarters "from the Inside-out" has proved central to the success of the project.
Not only were time and cost savings achieved by conceiving the inside and the outside as a whole, Big Dutchman was also able to benefit from a strong corporate image projected through the highly integrated interior-exterior architecture.The result is no less than "a home away from home", an office space of which all staff at Big Dutchman "are very proud".
Seeing the need to shorten delivery to customers as one of the initial steps towards realising the significant potential growth in the regional market, Big Dutchman decided to construct their own Asian headquarters at Bukit Raja on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The project was defined in three distinct parts: the office building to be designed from the inside out, the warehouse, and the remainder of the landscaped site.
