New corporate office design for WESTHOUSE
We had the opportunity to redesign a couple of office spaces for Westhouse Consulting GmbH, as well as Westhouse Engineering GmbH, who are based in the Garching area near Munich. Their corporate philosophy “WE make talent work” played an important role in the briefing for the new office design. Our main inspiration we took from the meaning oft he company’s logo, wchich helped us gather ideas fort he for the modernisation of their corporate spaces.
Further inspiration for the design development we found in the company´s name and used it as key words: „WEST“ in the sence of pioneering spirit, vision dynamics, development of the future, and „HOUSE“ as safety, home, reliability and stability. Out of these keywords emerged our corporate design solution.
The individually designed furniture in a warm wood look paired with green accents contributed towards the creation of a fresh and natural feeling. The selective use of various house plants rounds off the interior design and at the same time creates a modern, inviting indoor climate. The attributes of the company are reflected in the architecture and further highlighted by the targeted use of materials: metal and concrete. The color combitaion of blue and white further highlights the corporate indentity of our client, whilst givng the space a modern and striking look. The vision for the various spaces was interpreted designed by our interior designers, aiming to best reflect the company’s DNA.
The meeting rooms and comunal areas in the hallways were deliberately kept very clean to illustrate the character of Westhouse. However, as experts in spatial staging and corporate interior design, it was important to us to give the large conference room a more formal and ridgit look and turn it into a focal point of the office. We achieved this by placing mismatched chairs around the long table, whch itself was formed by ten small tables. These can also be individually positioned and rearranged, should the occasion call for it. A variety of lamps in different shapes, colors and sizes strategically distract from the standard grid ceiling and relaxes the environment.
The kitchen, as well as the reception and the lounge areas now create a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. With the newly designed furniture, we also created opportunities for retreat where employees can leave their usual seat and work creatively.
The project is a big success as we once more excelled to build a great brand experience. We would welcome the opportunity to work with WestHouse again in the near future and invite them to take advantage of our expertise in corporate architecture and interior design.
