More room comfort and unlimited design options
The new headquarters of KfW Bankengruppe in Berlin are the perfect example of a modern, open-space landscape. As part of the design, the developers wanted to create optimum conditions in terms of acoustics too, and with comprehensive measurements, questioning of employees and the integration of acoustic elements, they succeeded in doing just that. The new work areas at KfW Bank’s Berlin offices are part of a pilot project relating to open spatial structures. Those responsible here wanted to improve communication between employees, as well as use the spaces efficiently and design them in such a way that they could be adapted flexibly. Part of this concept was acoustic optimization: AOS Akustik Office Systems’ wall absorbers, sideboard attachments, and screens placed behind desks, hanging from the ceiling or as standalone elements became important features of this modern, open-space landscape. The concept by Stuttgart-based Ippolito Fleitz Group, which was commissioned with the design, provides for a combination of communicative areas and quiet zones.
