Visionary workplace interior design for leading German consumer credit expert
Beuthener Strasse 25
Floor Area: 15’200 m2
Completion: Spring 2015
TeamBank AG / easyCredit
The Team Bank, leading German consumer credit expert, recently moved into their new 15'000 m2 HQ in Nuremberg with over 700 employees.
Pioneering vision - from single offices to activity-based working
The interior fit-out of the building was designed by Swiss architecture and design studio Evolution Design, while the building itself was created by Austrian architecture firm Baumschlager Eberle and executed by Nuremberg architects GP Wirth Architekten. The interior fit-out of the building placed great importance in expressing the key values and philosophy of easyCredit: applying an innovative activity-based and needs orientated workplace approach to the work environment, which clearly expresses easyCredit’s claim to be innovator and trendsetter in the banking sector of Germany.
Unique Workplace Design with a vibrant city-flair
The internal functional organisation of the building utilises the idea of a city: a main staff restaurant and a Barista Bar with a vibrant ‚marketplace’ feeling, the ‚Homebases’ creating individual local neighbourhoods for the employees to work in, and the inner ring of the building as the ‚Meet & Create Zone’. All these public areas are part of the city concept with ‚parks’ and ‚street scenes’ to encourage a higher frequency of informal and accidental meetings and thus acting as a driver for creativity and innovation.
Inspiring Work Environment based on strong Identity and Branding
Throughout the building all spaces were designed in order to bring the company’s culture and vision alive. The result is a building in which easyCredit and its employees can find an inspiring home which reflects their extraordinary company spirit and enables them to identify strongly with their new workplace and HQ.
Setting trends in the banking sector
The new easyCredit HQ is an excellent example of successfully bringing together a new workplace concept while strongly expressing the company’s identity and culture throughout. Thus allowing easyCredit to clearly demonstrate its vision for innovation and setting trends in the banking sector of Germany.
