HERE: “Throughout history, location has played a key role in the development and progress of people and societies. As a company of over 8000 employees all focused on the concept of location and the potential it has to radically improve the way we do business, the way we get around and the way we live, we are shaping the future by redefining what was formerly known as a map. In 1985, we began with the simple goal to digitize mapping and pioneer in-car navigation systems. Over the next three decades, as NAVTEQ and Nokia, we’ve built a legacy in mapping technology. Today, we're creating living three-dimensional maps that grow upwards, breathing with layers of information and insights. And we're looking beyond. From autonomous driving, to the Internet of Things, we are building the future of location technology through strategic partnerships. Together we’re building open solutions for the future”.
The Kennedy Tower in Eindhoven is one of the HERE headquarters worldwide. M+R has designed a complete office concept for the new organization, including the look & feel and corporate design of the offices, such as the color palette; wayfinding; photo use etc. After the realization of the office Eindhoven was completed, M+R also signed for the head office in Amsterdam where the management is housed. HERE continues to develop and last year we were asked if we could design a special innovative meeting place in the building | the HERE HUB. Together with a number of employees, we designed the contours for this space during brainstorming sessions. The space is multifunctional and an extremely flexible space that is suitable for knowledge sharing; presentations; group sessions; lunches and also for the Town hall meetings. The furniture in the room is easy to move and the layout can be adapted to different needs. The cupboards with lots of greenery are mobile and equipped with whiteboards, there is a large interactive screen and catering facilities. The floor finish is part of HERE's corporate identity.
