  • bkp has laid the foundation for Gothaer Versicherungen’s future agile work structures in the design of the insurance company’s offices in Cologne, Germany.

    The innovative and multifunctional working environment promotes the interaction of the employees and turns Gothaer’s company slogan “go agile” into a spatial experience. The open structure of the rooms offers individual and group workspaces as well as several “active corners”. The design of these special zones is inspired by nature and makes it possible to work between lush green meadows and hills or at lofty heights above the clouds.

    The use of natural materials like wood and full-surface wallpapers, which allow the eye to wander into the distance, promote the employee’s mental well-being and let them enter another world. Thus, there are no limits to creativity, inspiration and interaction. For private meetings these areas can visually and acoustically be separated by printed curtains, which match the nature theme from the wallpaper designs. The workspaces offer height adjustable desks for ergonomic working and can be zoned by flexible dividing walls. These interactive and mobile walls are part of the acoustic concept and can also be used as whiteboards or room dividers. Therefore, depending on one’s needs, it is possible to work privately or to communicate and interact with colleagues.
