Office zones & areas
Flexibility, mobility, new technologies and communication are prominent features of smart working spaces. They boast open structures and spatial flexibility and are inspiring, diverse and multifaceted.
Versatile places for communication, cooperation, concentration and recreation are required that have the capacity to inspire creativity and innovate. The office becomes a living space, divided into a variety of zones and areas, similar to an urban landscape - perfectly tuned in to the specific work processes and dayto-day requirements of Solution Workers.
The ‘classic workstations’, used for concentrated work, teamwork, and management tasks. Space-efficient design, ergonomics, the capacity for individual organisation and a high level of functionality are fundamental to these areas. In many offices, workplaces still accommodate the greatest area – hence the need for them to be intelligently planned and well-positioned in the open office.
They are designed for communal activities, offering the ideal environment for collaboration and communication in a variety of settings and compositions. These areas include meeting and conference rooms as well as receptions, cafeterias and lounges. Usually located in traditional central zones, these are areas for spontaneous collaboration, stand-up meetings, and presentation spaces, plus workshops and discussions in small, informal settings. They are not only accessible to all permanent and temporary office users, but also to visitors and guests.
These zones offer space for concentrated work and privacy - primarily in an open office. These spaces include areas such as Touch Downs for temporary workers or visitors, think tanks, libraries and recreation zones. Undisturbed, focused work is promoted through the enhanced sound insulation these areas provide.
The support areas are centrally located and support the entire organisation. They focus on providing services and are available for all users.
