Briefing

The new office for the Vienna Business Circle was intended to convey a pleasant, cosy atmosphere, and serve as a convincing visual representation of the brand.

Based on a detailed analysis, an office concept was developed that is perfectly tailored to the needs of the company’s employees. Instead of forcing all the departments to fit into a given scheme, layouts and furnishings were provided that accorded with the employees' work routines and preferences. As a result, some departments were set up according to a "mobile" principle of desk sharing, while in other cases permanent workstations were installed.

Along with furnishing, the interior design concept developed by Bene includes acoustics and lighting solutions and a contemporary colour palette. One of the project's particular challenges was to integrate existing furniture into the new office environment.
