In consolidating four locations into one 95-acre site, Bayer HealthCare had the opportunity to establish a unified brand expression. The overarching goals of the new headquarters were to foster community through common culture and encourage wellbeing. The office plan is 100% open, providing a range of work environments that support both focus and collaboration. A variety of engaging spaces—from meeting pavilions to huddle rooms—bring versatility and build relationships. The “passage to wellness” traversing and connecting the workplace promotes walking, while the five-story stair through the atrium at the ‘heart’ of Bayer includes discreet distance markers and upgraded egress stairs further boost physical activity.
