The main task and goal was to design a fresh and modern interior highlighting the corporate DNA of the company, which employs mostly young people. At the same time, the interior had to promote healthy teamwork and the relaxation zones were designed to help increase productivity while offering space to unwind.

In view of the pandemic, completely new requirements and needs for the layout and functionality of the offices have emerged, which we have flexibly incorporated into the interior design. These included:
- Implementation of the "Covid-19 space plan" (ensuring 2 m spacing within open space areas, meeting rooms and dining areas).
- Sensitive integration of disinfection points and transparent Plexiglas screens into the interior design
- Implementation of a "well-being" zone with a "Gym wall" (furnishings within the work area used for stretching and relaxation), and a Zen room (separate quiet room evoking a beach mood - high soft carpet, hanging rocking chairs, wallpaper with elements of the forest).

The biggest challenge of the whole project in terms of technical and architectural aspects was the implementation of the internal staircase connecting the two floors. The staircase affected acoustic and fire safety issues, but both of these areas were successfully resolved.
