The task of this project was the revitalization of an empty precast concrete office from the 1980`s. After the purchase of the building by the firm DORNER Health IT Solutions the ground floor was to be turned into the firm’s headquarter, whereas the first floor was to contain rentable office space.

With an average budget, the client expected to achieve an exceptional level of architecture. After having played with several variations and solutions, we settled for a dark paint finish and reflective panels, giving the building an exclusive look.

All walls and the suspended ceiling were removed to create an open loft style working space, additionally the room was opened upon the courtyard and garden by replacing existing concrete wall elements by glazed sliding doors. Due to acoustic reasons, the ceiling was partially covered with woodwool slabs whereas all of the installation remained uncovered.

In the open room two volumes face each other formed by the kitchen on one side and the management office, archive and boiler room on the other. The carpenter made walls containing cabinets that are opened up with ample windows allowing visual contact between the rooms.

Partition walls as well as the specially designed furniture are all made from the same wooden panels, sustaining a continuous design throughout the office despite the numerous accentuations set in bright colors. As counterpart to the wooden interior there is a bright white mountain set in the angle of the L-shaped room, that serves as retreat and informal meeting room. Set in the rear part of the office there is also a freestanding cube containing a second, more private, meeting room.
