Planned and designed during the global pandemic, the headquarters of management and IT consultant Eraneos models new ways of working and fosters team cohesion within this rapidly expanding technology company.
Central to our design concept was finding a balance between the demand for online video calls and the evolving post-pandemic concerns related to the noise sensitivity. In response, each floor of Eraneos's headquarters features large amount of video booths as well as dedicated spaces for focused work. Demarcated with glass partitions to promote visual connectivity, focus rooms feature floor-to-ceiling wall graphics depicting UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Abundant indoor greenery enhances both well-being and productivity.
In order to encourage cross-collaboration and maintain a cohesive one-company culture, the workplace is deliberately designed without so-called homebases or areas assigned to particular teams. Private offices are eschewed, too, allowing employees to choose their work location within the office. This flexibility encourages serendipitous encounters with colleagues from different departments.
Furthermore, three vibrant informal hubs serve as gathering points, fostering a sense of togetherness. Here, Eraneos employees can share meals, enjoy coffee breaks, conduct informal meetings, or even socialise after work with a refreshing drink in hand.
