New Competenz office was designed based on activity related areas. Various teams needed their own private spaces where people could work without interruption, with meeting rooms that could be closed off for project discussions or opened up for collaboration. Creating such a structured yet flexible work environment was a challenge, but Yellow 6 solved it by designing a variety of sliding door systems, agile walls and partial height walls. The latter also double as whiteboards as the frosted glass used in them can be written on. Here you can see some of the work in progress.
The overall feel of the space was to reflect Competenz industries: be edgy and smart with lots of natural light and greenery. To achieve that Yellow 6 Design has gone for a simple colour scheme with natural timbers and cork lined walls. Frosted glass partitions throughout the space allow to take advantage of the natural light.
We also had an ample supply of beautiful graphic material provided by Competenz’s own branding. It was too good to be left unused so we introduced its elements into glass frosting, wall graphics and workstation screens.
