For the company BSH, we undertook the task of renovating executive offices with the goal of improving the space to facilitate good interaction between management, employees, and external partners. We transformed the original cellular office layout, which limited visual and social connections, into a connected and transparent space reflecting the company's values.

The previously complex spatial organization with a large number of solid walls, columns, and unusual corners, we unified with the use of a curved wooden wall. The wall separates the hallway from the executive spaces, envelops and hides spatial imperfections, while the wood creates a welcoming sense of warmth. The offices have natural light from all sides, previously underutilized due to the solid walls and separate hallway. We incorporated glass openings into the curved wooden wall, filling the spaces with natural light, creating an encouraging work environment. For the presentation of company products, we placed glass shelves in the openings.

Executive offices, due to their nature, are still designed as cellular, enclosed spaces. We opened them up with glass walls but kept them acoustically separated to ensure an adequate degree of peace and concentration. We incorporated several meeting spaces into the offices: a meeting room for quick, target-oriented meetings, a larger multifunctional conference room for formal presentations, and an informal corner for coffee socializing.

Our renovation of the BSH executive offices was designed with the aim of promoting greater connectivity among employees, improving productivity, and creating a working environment that supports and reflects the company's values.
