Think tank - space-efficient room-in-room solution
The think tank saves office space
The vetroCUBE system stands freely on the surface and is self-sufficient, i.e. independent of the infrastructure of the building (e.g. ventilation). Due to the room-in-room construction, the thinker cell can occupy areas in the central zone that are suboptimal for setting up office workplaces. Conversely, the thinker cell keeps the valuable area along the facade free for workplaces. The resulting planning possibilities optimize communication and space efficiency spatially as well as organizationally and acoustically.
Supported by the open office structure, the space on the façade is used intensively. Open office space is certified to be suitable for communication. Direct visual relationships shorten many processes. It is precisely this argument that weighs particularly heavily in the age of communication. In addition, the demand for flexible use of office space is increasing. Whoever deals with the operation of office buildings knows the meaning of the word restructuring for spatial planning. Last but not least, high real estate costs and the resulting desire to make optimum use of available office space are stabilising the trend towards open space.
The Think Tank as Room in Room Solution Keeps the Facade Free for Workplaces
- Thinker cell detached from building structure
- self-sufficient, especially with a view to ventilation
- Use of the central zone
- Facade remains free for workplaces
- Space for communication
- Space for concentration
- Retreat areas directly at the workplace
- Appearance transparent and unobtrusive

Open office environments stand for space efficiency and communication
At the same time, the open office is acoustically problematic. It is considered loud and restless. Telephone calls are audible from afar. Conversations or even team meetings disturb neighboring employees. In addition, the trend towards buildings with active components must be taken into account. Acoustically activated areas are scarce here. The resulting longer reverberation times also cause unrest on the surface. The necessity to create retreat areas for longer conversations is obvious.
The think tank can isolate noise sources in open space
Here the space in space concept think tank, detached from the building, as a self-sufficient, free-standing construction is created. Only in this way can the room "move" at any time and thus do justice to pending restructuring. This is the only way that the thinker cell can be positioned at any point and does not have to be connected to the ventilation system (individual room control).
The think tank promotes the change between individual work and teamwork.
The thinker cell is a decisive building block for upgrading an open space. The employees have access to retreat areas for intensive communication phases in the immediate vicinity of the workplace. The vetroCUBE system thus provides the spatial basis for the desired change between concentrated individual work and communication-oriented group work. Different areas of use are created on the office space. Young, team-oriented colleagues and older, experienced "lone fighters" find each other and/or their personal comfort and concentration areas.
