Biz Cafe


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: I’m embarrassed to admit it but I was one of the first people to criticize the concept of cyber cafés and even bet they wouldn’t last. To cut the story short, I had to swallow my words and I’m here to make amends. What we have here is the Biz Café – a concept targeted towards the jet-set workaholics who need gadget ready environments even while relaxing with a cup of coffee. Think about it, most restaurants and glitzy places in town have access to our social profile and instantly ping the world with a status update! So yes, in the future we will need a semi-office environment, even in cafés, so that we don’t lose out on work!

Overview:  The Turbine Bridge concept is a hydroelectric power station that also serves as a multifunctional space on Amsterdam’s Amstel River. On the main internal level there is space dedicated to pedestrian walkers and cyclists, cafes and stores while the upper level hosts terraces, playgrounds and spaces to relax. More than just a link between two sides of the river, the bridge aims to become a landmark where both locals and tourists can come together.
