Liong Lie Architects has recently completed the interior and decors of the NTI headquarters offices in Leiden, Netherlands. NTI is an institution with over 70 years of experience in the distance learning process, offering more than 850 programs of study and courses.
The new interior design of NTI offices is approached in a youthful and lively manner that stimulates creativity, communication and cohesion. Liong Lie manages to create an atmosphere so pleasant and warm, that the high quality work derives freely from a state of well-being, favorable to creativity and involvement. NTI identity has always been defined by vivid tones and colors, and this is emphasized by the entire space of offices through the enthusiastic explosion of colors.
Liong Lie laid emphasis on light and airy space that can contribute to a better cohesion and communication to improve teamwork. The colors also have a role of identifying the premises and guidance. The spaces that are dedicated to the educational processes bear a familiar note that encourages participation. Informal communication is also encouraged over coffee, for this purpose the space benefits of a bar and other facilities. The idea of the sky being represented on the ceiling is a successful one and contributes decisively to the effect of spaciousness and a warm and open atmosphere. Nature is brought close and incorporated through the presence of the walls, on which several landscapes are featured. NTI offices express vitality, while being at the same time very friendly and stimulating, supporting the specific activity of the company.
