"Welcome home!" was the theme when we designed the new layout and projected all furnishings for HSB's new Stockholm office for just over 400 employees.
HSB´s Stockholm office has undergone a complete renovation in order to allow for openness and accessability. pS has been the interior architect and space planner. Much effort has gone into creating an ergonomic and modern office in terms of acoustics and lighting. This in combination with new IT-technology has made the change from cellular offices to open workspace a great and pleasant experience; a place for informal meetings and exchange of knowledge. The reception, is the “Living shop” and the inner courtyard all merge together on the ground floor, allowing for staff and guests to mix and mingle informally. The interior design is comfortable and colourful, contrasting efficiently against the original 40´ies intarsia wall and the open “pater noster lifts”. The office spaces takes it´s inspiration from the city block. Each block consists of a number of desks and in the centre there are“squares” and meeting points such as lounge furniture, hotdesks and telephone booths. Some 420 people work in the building. The top floor has an amazing view over the city roof tops and presents a dozen meeting rooms for external meetings. Relaxing lounges and a creative space named “Think Tank” completes this welcoming office.
