I WANT MY...
MTV NEEDED A BUILDING IN AMSTERDAM THAT FELT BOTH ‘AT HOME’, WHILE CONTAINING STATE-OF-THE-ART PRODUCTION FACILITIES.
MTV Networks Nederland has moved to the Mediawharf in Amsterdam and QuA was the interior architect for the building. QuA worked together with Max van Aerschot architects who take credit for the exiterior of the building. The concept for the interior architecture aims to respect the original architecture of the building as much as possible. The 5000 square meter building includes studios, offices for the various stations and a restaurant for all divisions of MTV Networks.
Special attention should be paid to lighting and soundproofing. The atmosphere should be ‘open’ but with private areas. It should be ‘hip’ but professional; a great place to work, overlooking the water in Amsterdam.
Several production companies, such as MTV, Nickelodeon and TMF will use the building. It should include meeting rooms, editing suites, studios, offices, a restaurant and welcome area.
