The pandemic has caused the so-called hybrid model of work, i.e. the combination of office-based and remote working, to become fundamentally embedded in our daily working practices. The office layout and interior design mirror the two basic needs that the analysis revealed: a larger and more variable space for collaboration and meeting (the co-working zone) and, in contrast, a quiet place for independent and focused work (the library). Within the co-working zone, colleagues can use variable seating options for different types of meetings. It is dominated by a large oak table for more formal meetings and an atypical rounded light sofa from Vitra for informal meetings. A room called the Library is the counterpart to the collaborative zone. It is used exclusively for individual work. Phone calls and noisy conversations are prohibited there. If a conversation needs to be sparked, the room offers two so-called "silent booths", or there is a cosy corner with comfortable armchairs that invite you to sit down and discuss everything you need to know. The Library also serves as a room for larger meetings or smaller events.

The key to the interior design was to create an environment in which everyone feels comfortable and relaxed. Soft, light shades were used in contrast with earthier ones, but the colour scheme was chosen so as not to distract, but rather to encourage creativity, calm and create a cosy and safe atmosphere. Another essential element in the interior is wood, which makes the whole interior pleasantly warm. The choice of furniture, its placement, ergonomics, the materials used and the colours evoke a pleasant relaxed mood that encourages creative ideas and thoughts. Given the variability of the Library's use, the furniture can be freely varied according to the need and nature of the event. The room is also equipped with the best audiovisual technology - ceiling microphones, built-in cameras, LCD screens, camera for hybrid events, etc.
