DEAS - workplace design
Workplace Design: C.F. Møller Architects
Through the planning of the lease, meeting rooms were strategically placed to improve the flow of the building and create more attractive areas for common and support facilities. The positioning of the meeting rooms broke the monotony of the open-plan spaces and created a series of pockets for workspaces. To visualise their presence in the shared office building, a narrative was developed in collaboration with DEAS and embedded in the physical environment.
Development of a design guide that provided guidelines for design choices based on the organisation's values. Development of a furniture strategy, including proposals for reuse of existing furniture. Design of all support facilities based on needs identified with the user group, as well as the design of the Home Store on the ground floor.
Management of furniture procurement via a procurement agreement. Preparation of colour proposals for walls, as well as colour and material proposals for all new furniture. Development of navigation and foil concept in collaboration with graphic designer.
Process Consultancy & User Involvement
Meeting management in connection with the steering group. Facilitation of user group with special focus on requirement specifications for the future open office environment, as well as preparation of the organisation, not all of whom had experience with open offices.
Organisation of a meeting with the employees, where outlined scenarios for layout and location in the lease were discussed. Preparation of material for information meetings to ensure transparency and understanding of why the physical framework was organised as it was.
