Dialogues House is the environment ABN AMRO Bank uses for its combinatoric innovation and collaborations. The mission of Dialogues House is ‘Through Valuable Encounters We Make More Possible Together’. To attain its mission Dialogues House is open to the general public, offers a programme with timely content, inspirational lectures and houses various innovative projects, and ventures.
Because of these activities Dialogues House receives more than 200.000 visitors a year. The combination of scale and environment allows for an abundance of fruitful serendipitous encounters. To stimulate this further, the concept of Dialogues House is founded on a coherent design of four so-called ‘spaces’ which enable knowledge work, positive change and innovation. These spaces are the social space, the physical space, the virtual space and the procedural space.
The wide network of Dialogues House, the people in its networks, the interior design, the independent IT infrastructure and independent operational procedures are carefully designed and evolve over time. These combinatoric design* aspects contribute to the success of innovation for ABN AMRO Bank, its partners and society at large.
