Codan - workplace design

"Modern classic with an edge" was the concept for Codan’s desired identity in the upgrade of their existing premises. In the dark and neutral office building, a new layout opened up for increased daylight in the working environments, and at the same time freed up space for new functions. To accommodate the desire to bring all employees together under one roof, shared workspaces were established in combination with homeworking and zones that encouraged different ways of working. An interpretation of Codan’s distinctive blue colour was made a centrepiece on each floor through a storage solution, while accent colours were used to create an edge in the established zones.
