German designers Schöne Räume matched the functional skeleton construction, made of reinforced concrete, of a former logistics centre with modern and individualistic design elements for the offices of their client Gries Deco Company GmbH.

Says Schöne Räume, “By following this idea, three volume structures are to form an ensemble within the central axis of the 2nd floor. The structures divide the total area of 3,250 m² into two design areas and comprise two creative labs at the northern and southern end, respectively, as well as an ID:pool in the centre. The outer wall of the labs is covered by pure wooden boards that form a relief due to the distinctive thickness of the boards.”

“The inner life of the three structures, like a laboratory, stands out in bright white paint. The wooden panelling covering the outer walls is reflected by the parquet floor of the labs, the entryways, in the form of cones, intensify the attractiveness of the inner area.”

“Significant by design are the felt-covered sideboards and tables that structure the room and promote the exchange of information among personnel. In addition, the staff can focus on their work in separate working niches.”

“The ID:pool is located in the centre of the creativity design area, which also accommodates a comprehensive collection of distinctive materials and serves as inspiration while planning new products.”
