The Water Management and Sewerage Service (Dienst Waterbeheer en Riolering, or DWR) is the Netherlands’ first wastewater chain company. In 2006 the DWR and the municipal water company (Waterleidingbedrijf Amsterdam) joined forces as Waternet, whose head office now stands at a bend in the River Amstel in Amsterdam and is designed by Architectuurstudio Herman Hertzberger.

The open workplace, social space, the building as urban object, the building’s capacity to accept change, and Structuralism are themes found throughout Hertzberger’s office designs.

Waternet Double Tower illustrates these themes not just with the Waternet head office but additionally enlists the services of all other realized office buildings by Herman Hertzberger, the best known being Centraal Beheer in Apeldoorn and the Ministry of Social Welfare and Employment and the Benelux Trademarks Office, both in The Hague.
