The key design accomplishment for the 8,800-square-meter offices of this German pharmaceutical company is the fostering of collaboration and teamwork. Two internal stairs connect the three floors and facilitate vertical movement within the firm. Four conference rooms accommodate frequent videoconferencing with the company’s headquarters in Germany. Huddle rooms, break areas, a café, gallery and lounge encourage communication and informal meetings among employees. Private offices integrate visually with the use of clear-glass partition, and the resulting space fosters employee communication, catalyzes workgroups and clearly conveys the company’s corporate image.
