New building on the factory premises

The open office space structure is required and implemented here. The advantages in terms of optimized communication, transparent processes and short distances convinced the client. What's more, he was already in need of office space, so there was no alternative. The brief to the planning team could only be to acoustically optimize the open space so that the typical disadvantages of open space were eliminated.

Key planning data

  • an office for senior staff
  • two conference rooms
  • two telephone booths
  • one think tank
  • 46 workstations in the open area
  • work cafe
  • Central zone with storage space


  • High transparency even for executive offices
  • Optimized acoustics
  • retreat areas
  • dense population

The think tank locks conversations away

The most important component for the acoustic optimization of an open office space is certainly the think tank. As a place of retreat in the immediate vicinity of the workstations, the room-in-room design ensures that team meetings and small meetings arranged at short notice can be banished from the space. This significantly reduces the amount of noise and allows other colleagues to concentrate on their work. The same applies to long phone calls, preferably in a foreign language, perhaps on a mobile device. These conversations are usually very loud and can also be easily transferred to telephone booths according to the room-in-room principle. This optimizes the ability to concentrate in the large room as well as for the people making the calls themselves.

The quiet module blocks direct sound

It is simply not enough to acoustically trim the area for a good reverberation time. This certainly reduces the overall noise level, but has no appreciable effect on the intelligibility of syllables from workstation to workstation - from team to team. Acoustic modules limit the spread of sound in the long term without calling the open office structure into question.


Office space in parts of the production hall. The surfaces are usually only exposed on one side. To make optimal use of the space.


The decision to populate an office space more densely usually raises acoustic concerns. Pay attention to acoustics.


Optimize the open office space in such a way that the typical disadvantages of open space are eliminated.


Daylight over the ceiling requires functional elements that are detached from the building. Space in space offers solutions.


The paperless office. It is rarely realized. Here we accompany a customer who turns a phrase into something serious.


The lack of office space often forces us to rethink things. Cell office structures then become open office spaces.


The customer's task: Lead our team into an open, transparent, modern and communicative office world.
