Scout24 operates leading digital marketplaces in Germany and other selected European countries. The core businesses of the Scout24 brand are the digital marketplaces ImmobilienScout24 and AutoScout24. ImmobilienScout24 is the leading digital platform in Germany for real estate ads in respect to user access, length of visit as well as customer numbers and ads. In Europe, AutoScout24 is a leading digital platform for car ads in terms of the monthly amount of unique visitors and ads. With its digital marketplaces, Scout24 inspires people as they make difficult life decisions and connects them with their new home or car.
Creating space for inspiration – Scout24 implemented this initiative with Bene and Combine Design architects in Munich. There is space for up to 500 workstations in the new Leuchtenbergring Office, which occupies three levels and about 8,000 sq.m. in total. In designing it, the focus was on comfort, functionality and a modern technological infrastructure. The goal of the innovative office concept is to optimally support the cross-functional work of the young, international Scout24 teams with flexible, open spaces and communication islands.
To achieve this, different spaces and places were designed to support and promote collaboration as well as concentration, and transport the corporate image. Bene and Combine Design architects advised on the planning and workstation design. Approximately 350 workstations were furnished with Bene T-LIFT DESKS. This height-adjustable desk allows you to alternate at work between sitting and standing. The DELTA tables with their striking table frames offer comfortable functionality in the collaboration areas. To encourage dynamic processes for groups, DELTA is used as a high table in the collaboration zones. The accompanying TIMBA Stools not only compliment the tables perfectly with their appearance, they also offer ideal seating for teamwork and informal exchanges. New possibilities of collaboration are offered by PIXEL, which can be reconfigured from traditional small group settings into a platform for an audience to sit on, a bar or tables and stools in next to no time.
The concept is called “activity-based-working.” That means that different work styles and tasks will be supported by various working environments, from classical workplaces to open communication and collaboration areas equipped by state-of-the-art ICT (information and communication technology).
