For Heureka, Hezkey has created new offices in their headquarters in Prague and in their offices in Liberec for their programming teams and redesigned the existing relaxation zones into multifunctional spaces suitable for employee relaxation, collaborative work, a joint workshop, or even a yoga class.

Thanks to flexible and modular furniture and equipment, the space can then be easily converted into a company-wide meeting even though on regular day it is used by only 60% of employees.

The client, Heureka, needed to provide comfortable facilities for 270 people sitting in offices in Prague and Liberec due to the ever-growing number of employees. The offices have about 650m2 total created with hybrid work in mind.

Employees are able choose where to work for the day which helps the work dynamic. In addition, a lot of the work at Heureka is done in teams, so it is important to be able to bring the team together, or create space for a joint workshop or quick “sync”.

In addition to open space, two new types of workspaces have been created. The “workshop room” is a room with a community table that can be easily rearranged – this creates a space for a joint workshop or meeting alongside the workstations. The “Flexi meeting” has tables on wheels that can be moved quickly to free up space.

The offices are also full of less formal seating, whether it’s bar stools or lounge nooks. The most acoustically pleasing solutions for making phone calls are high acoustic chairs and phone booths.
