Creating more space, changing retreat and meeting areas, and the office as a place of well-being – these aspects characterise the new headquarters of the internationally renowned HPP architecture firm in Düsseldorf's Medienhafen district. The new working worlds were created using glass walls from Strähle. Just like the architecture of the building, the interior of the 3,300 m² office space for 170 employees was also designed by HPP.
As a 'workshop of creativity', the inspiring spaces offer places for agile working as well as for formal or informal communication: conference and project rooms, 'hubs', telephone booths, seating niches and podiums. The signature of the new working environment is the generosity of the open space areas, which give each employee more individual room for creativity and, in times of crisis, also plenty of space for social distancing. The latest findings concerning hygienic distances and safety perceptions were taken into account during the planning stages.
A major contribution is made by the all-glass walls of the System 3400. Its black anodised profiles create an exciting contrast to the light-coloured floor coverings. Double-glazed partition wall systems were used in the areas with increased sound insulation requirements.
