The Axa Group is one of the largest international insurance groups and asset managers in the world. With a focus on Western Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific region, Axa manages assets of over 1 billion euros. In Germany alone the Axa Group, with a recorded income amounting to over 10 billion euros and 10,000 employees, is one of the leading financial service providers.


The insurance group moved into the newly constructed Building 4 of the »International Business Center Prinzen Park« in Düsseldorf. The project, by architect and urban developer Walter Brune, offers high-quality office space. The management at Axa had the clear desire to implement a new kind of office concept that catered to the very different, temporary presence of their employees—who can do telework from home 1 to 4 days a week. For this reason, they decided on an open-plan office concept which fulfilled all the requirements regarding changing communication and concentrated work.

Bene won us over with their overall concept and products. What we hope to gain from this new office environment is a better working climate for our employees, more modern work structures and in the end to become the No. 1 employer.
