Renovation of Damen Shipyards head office

Damen Shipyards established its head office in the “De Schelde” national monument in Vlissingen. The original design of this building was based on the American Industrial style and utilised European features. Over the years, the style became increasingly difficult to recognise due to the many changes made to the building. GroupA restored many of the important elements, such as the entrance hall, circular staircase, and atrium roof while many of the additions were removed. The building consists of the national monument and outbuildings with a connecting part in between.

The interior has been completely restyled using contemporary patterns, colours and materials. Keijsers Interiors took care of the custom interior on the first floor of the main building, as well as all the floors in the annex including conference tables with built-in video walls, cupboard walls, kitchen areas, and storage cabinets with display cases.
