haascookzemmrich STUDIO2050 have designed a new office landscape for the international communication agency Geometry Global in Hamburg’s Holstenhof. Workstations and meeting areas are spread over three floors with a central arena providing a new focal point. Tea-kitchens, workbenches and informal working areas are complemented by a small library; whist quiet alcoves provide opportunity for individual retreat.
Themes of openness and interaction were pursued in the renovation of offices which are housed in a Art Nouveau Building facing directly onto Kaiser-Wilhelm-Strasse. The technical infrastructure is exposed below the concrete ceilings, maximizing the feeling of space and promoting a distinctly workshop character. Existing brickwork is deliberately exposed and industrial concrete screens are used for the floors.
The few necessary office partitions are as transparent as possible, with full-height glass construction. Internal communication is strengthened by the integration of an an additional internal staircase.
Furniture and lighting concepts for the open office landscape were developed together with PLY Unestablished Furniture.
