There’s no shortage of amazing architecture in Rotterdam. And at Sana, we’re lucky enough to be headquartered in one of the city’s most beautiful buildings: the Van Nelle Factory.
We’re not the only ones who think our office is something special. The Van Nelle Factory is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
The Van Nelle is a place where innovation has always taken center stage — and still does, every day, from sleek design to sustainability. So it’s not strange that our headquarters have plenty of places perfect for inspiring innovation (and enough coffee to make the magic happen).
Here are our top 5 favorite places to work at Sana HQ!
The Coffee Corner
Our office living room is always a wonderful place to work. It’s a comfortable, relaxed, and ideal for getting your daily tasks done.
Like switching it up during your workday? The Coffee Corner has you covered. It has everything from high tables and regular tables to standing desks. You can even curl up on the couch to plough through the day’s top priorities.
All that with a hot cup of coffee or tea, of course. Starbucks eat your heart out.
It’s a Sana favorite because you’re always first in line at the coffee machine and can see exactly when our fresh fruit has been topped up.
One of the most eye-catching things about the Van Nelle is the glass. Not only does it look stunning, but it also means that there are plenty of light, spacious work areas — like Deli33.
Deli33 is where you can grab a nutritious breakfast or delicious lunch, but it’s also ideal for setting up your laptop away from the main Sana office. (Or at least it is outside lunch hours.)
It’s also a great place to network, as many of the other innovative companies based in the Van Nelle Factory use this as their go-to lunch spot.
It’s a Sana favorite because delicious food and people-watching make work that much more fun.
The Silence Room
The name says it all, really. The Silence Room is the ideal place for anyone who needs a bit of peace and quiet.
When we say quiet, we really do mean quiet. No colleagues in meetings or on phones — just the serenity you need to get that tricky task done.
If you’re thinking that it doesn’t look quite as nice as the Coffee Corner, no worries: we’re going to be renovating it soon. We’re sure that once we’re done, it’ll be an even bigger favorite among our colleagues. New photos to come after the makeover!
It’s a Sana favorite because nothing beats complete silence for tasks that require the utmost concentration.
The Picnic Tables
The picnic tables are an amazing spot to soak up some sun during office hours. All you need to do is create a hotspot, find the perfect combination of sun and shade, and you’re ready to go. Oh, and watch out for the geese.
It’s a Sana favorite because what could possibly be better than working on your to-do list and your tan at the same time?
Working at the bar is business as usual at Sana, and we couldn’t recommend it more.
You’ll never be bothered at the bar (except on Friday afternoons). Need a break after all that hard work? Then you’re a stone’s throw from our table tennis table. Come Friday afternoon, this is where all our Rotterdam-based colleagues head to swap out their laptops for their drink of choice!
It’s a Sana favorite because you can tell your friends you worked in the bar today.
