“Our goal was to create spaces that work well but also effuse a pleasing ambience.” Irina Meiser, interior designer
Felix Kühne, Büronauten AG: „The office zone is divided into “neighbourhoods” and a Town Hall, the main central element: a staircase for communication where employee assemblies are also held monthly. The stair encourages exchanges across floors. Cafeteria and a terrace create another attractive place for getting together. Also there is a micro-kitchen on each floors.
The choice of natural surfaces, especially the Aspen Raw parquet floor with it unfinished Oak floor looking oil finish, supplied and installed by Art On Bodenbeläge, have a sound-absorbing effect. The glazing in the conference rooms provides transparent, luminous interiors. Together with the wood, it all sends out a certain elegance.
