“We want an office that will compete for prizes and attract talent, and at the same time will suit various groups working in it” – these ambitious plans were implemented even at the stages of choosing the location and preparing a conceptual design.
The reception area is also a perfect combination of homelike furniture aesthetics and a distinct pattern of strings, lush greenery, rounded shapes and the subtle use of colour, as well as ING Tech Poland branding. A similar principle, but with the addition of bright, colourful terrazzo is seen in the aesthetics of the social areas: a large common kitchen, coffee point and bathrooms.
Apart from the amazing atmosphere combining history and modernity, Elektrownia Powiśle offers a wide spectrum of attractive functions and services in one place, and a very well communicated location.
When designing the division of available space and the space plan of the new ING Tech Poland unit, creating a so-called Positive Vibe to help build a position in the labour market, was as important as the aesthetics and universal functionality of the office.
The unit has therefore been arranged so as to provide each team with the necessary work space.
The cream of the crop among common areas that have become favourite places to spend time in, is the so-called Fun Zone – an area with a view over the most vibrant part of the Elektrownia Powiśle complex.
Fun Zone is a place where, in addition to having a meal together, you can also combine work and keeping active by using stationary bikes, charge your phone, and make some noise and let off steam while playing table football or Playstation, or even by using a punching bag.
Designers divided the office into smaller areas, each for 10-12 work stations. This arrangement allowed to allocate space for daily teams’ meetings, while maintaining the ability to flexibly change the layout of some zones. Providing an environment of freedom and transparency in the entire office further supports the Agile approach, i.e. a way of working adopted throughout the company.
This functional approach allowed us to create an office which supports relationship building and provides space for uninterrupted work. It is conducive to meetings and internal networking which in turn facilitates and generates the integration of different teams.
The modern form of traditional compositions is what characterises the office. Controversial solutions like baroque frames or terrazzo perfectly complement the interior’s atmosphere.
Furthermore, the new space supports competencies and learning processes, and facilitates the completion of tasks, by providing areas of different character. All solutions have been adapted to the style of work of individual teams.
Przez wzgląd na akustykę przeszklonych pomieszczeń w wielu miejscach zastosowano dodatkowo miękkie kotary, które również wpisują się w domową estetykę. Dodatkowo część ścian, szczególnie w salkach spotkań, została wykończona miękkimi wałkami z pianki akustycznej.
