THE VERTICAL CAMPUS: A NEW WORKING WORLD.
“We want to bump into each other more often…"
With this request from Dynatrace, a leading global software company, an intensive joint design process for the development of their new headquarters in Linz began in 2016. As a fast-growing global market leader, they are constantly on the lookout for software experts and dreamed of a lively, inspiring place for 500 people. A place for concentrated work as well as for interaction and chance encounters!
The Vertical Campus is Born!
We designed the seven story building as a vertical campus, similar to a vibrant city district, filled with a heterogeneous mix of work places, as well as public spaces, parks, cafés etc. in a three-dimensionally distributed in space. An open staircase in the central foyer connects visually and physically!
Possibilities Instead of Compulsion!
Different types of "possibility spaces" promote communication, teamwork and these chance encounters.
Public and private areas (and everything in between) were well thought-out, graded and interlocking. Multi-space further developed means everyone has their own fixed workplace and additionally benefits from a variety of work opportunities and different spaces for various activities. In the end, both concentration and interaction are possible!
