Working at Sana’s Rotterdam headquarters means doing cutting-edge work at a historic location. Our office captures this contradiction perfectly. Join us for a quick tour of our favorite meeting rooms in the Van Nelle Factory!
This is where the Van Nelle board of directors used to meet. Today you’ll find our own management team here. But you don’t have to be a member of the Sana C-suite to enjoy this beautiful space.
The Boardroom is the biggest and lightest meeting room in Building 10. Need a place to bring your entire department or project group together? This is the place to book.
One of the things that set the Van Nelle Factory apart was the focus on natural light — it wasn’t called ‘a poem in steel and glass’ for nothing. While there are a number of beautiful locations on the premises with big, sweeping windows and plenty of natural light, one of our most eye-catching meeting rooms is actually underground: the Vault.
Yes, this was the original factory’s actual vault where employee salary money was stored. Now that our salaries are paid electronically, we’ve been able to repurpose this unique space for small-scale meetings.
“I love that the Vault is still so authentic!”
It’s not all historic authenticity in our corner of the Van Nelle Factory. In the Sana basement you’ll find four cubicles where you can meet and just get stuff done with minimal distractions. From regular desks to bar stools: there’s always a space that works for you.
Need to discuss something in private? Folks in the Lounge area can see you, but they won’t be able to hear what you’re saying!
“The cubicles are perfect for so many things, from small-scale meetings to focusing on my daily to-do list.”
Meeting Room Middle
Did someone beat you to the Boardroom? No need to worry: your entire group can easily fit in Meeting Room Middle.
MR Middle, as it’s colloquially known, is a light, quiet space, and the only meeting room with a large projector. This makes it the ideal location for meetings with your team or clients. And with the glass and steel panels, it’s got that unmistakable Van Nelle look.
Meeting Room Left
Don’t need as much space, but still want the authentic Van Nelle Factory experience? Head to Meeting Room Left, MR Middle’s smaller counterpart, with just as much light and a TV instead of a projector.
We use MR Left for more than just meetings. This September we turned it into the Sana Experience Center during the B2B E-Commerce Event 2017. It was the place for event visitors to get answers to their pressing questions about B2B e-commerce!
