Interior The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS)

In June 2011, the new headquarters for RBS in the Netherlands, in the Ben van Berkel UNStudio designed building on the Zuidas, was taken into use. The office covers a total of approximately 10,500 sqm and is located on part of the ground floor and on the top nine floors of the 85-meter high building. The interior is completely designed and decorated to the international “new design language” of RBS, a totally new, still under development, corporate identity for all RBS branches worldwide.

Heyligers d + p has explicitly aligned the interior with the architecture of the building. Thanks to an efficient layout the building has retained its high transparency. The existing voids of the building are expressly incorporated into the interior design.

The office provides space for approximately 700 employees, the 20th floor is arranged as a conference and meeting center and on the 13th and 14th floor the trading room is situated with 136 workstations. Part of the ground floor is used for the realization of a restaurant with 110 seats available to RBS staff and guests only.

This RBS office has achieved the ‘LEED Gold’ for commercial interiors’ qualification. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design and is a certification ‘for the design, construction and operation of green buildings’.
