A new hybrid office for SIEMENS
In a rapidly evolving world, where workspaces are adapting to new models of hybrid working, the need for innovative and versatile office designs has become paramount. At our firm, we are driven by a purpose: to create spaces that empower businesses to thrive. Our latest project with SIEMENS, a global technology powerhouse, showcases our commitment to enhancing the user experience, fostering employee engagement, and optimizing workplace performance. The result? A workplace that every team member is excited to get to on the days when physical presence is required.
SIEMENS is a technology company focused on industry, infrastructure, transport, and healthcare. From more resource-efficient factories, resilient supply chains, and smarter buildings and grids, to cleaner and more comfortable transportation as well as advanced healthcare, the company creates technology with purpose adding real value for customers. The company reached out to our team to re-design their headquarters in Greece and consolidate their two expansive office floors into a single, cohesive space. Guided by functional needs, the latest trends, and strict guidelines, our team produced a workplace that seamlessly adapts to the evolving demands of the modern workforce and boosts productivity!
Key to the design was the creation of an innovative hybrid office. To achieve this, we integrated innovative elements that cater to the changing needs of Siemens’ employees. Our design featured state-of-the-art communication booths and collaboration areas, allowing for seamless virtual meetings and brainstorming sessions. We also implemented safe access measures, air-disinfection and purification solutions, touchless controls, lighting automations, and audio-visual systems optimized for hybrid work. These advancements not only ensure the physical well-being of employees but also enable efficient and immersive collaboration regardless of location.
In alignment with Siemens’ commitment to environmental responsibility, we strived to maximize the reuse of loose furniture and equipment. By repurposing existing elements, we reduced waste and embodied the principles of circular design. Our aim was to create a space that not only meets the functional needs of Siemens but also minimizes the environmental impact associated with the project.
The well-being and productivity of employees are always essential pillars of our design. To enhance the user experience, we incorporated elements that prioritize employee engagement and psychological safety. Our design included open collaboration areas that foster creativity and communication, as well as introvert sound-insulated zones for focused work. By striking the right balance between collaboration and privacy, we created a workplace where every individual feels empowered and valued.
The completed design showcases Siemens’ vision for an optimized workspace. Through our focus on user experience, employee engagement, and innovative solutions, we have transformed the office into a thriving ecosystem that enables individuals to excel individually and collaborate seamlessly. By aligning the physical environment with the new hybrid work model, Siemens now possesses a workspace that reflects their commitment to adaptability, employee well-being, and sustainable practices.
