  • CAPEXUS was tasked with bringing together a group of companies in a new collaborative space at the Direct offices in Prague, Czech Republic.

    The ability to work on projects together
    This large project – which the new offices of Direct covering six floors of the building undoubtedly is – was an interesting challenge when it came to coordinating professions, project documentation and building modifications. Some activities are interwoven, others follow naturally from each other. The end result was the transformation of a crude building into a modern headquarters.

    Direct decided to move out of the Old Brewery in Holešovice in order to connect all its companies to each other so that everyone from the Direct Family can work together on projects in an attractive and highly sustainable environment. Another motivation was sustainability and respect for nature. One of Direct’s values is “More with less”, which aims, among other things, at sustainability and environmental friendliness. The entire Port 7 site holds LEED and WELL certifications.

    An inspiring space and good deeds are the foundation
    A shared Direct plaza coworking zone was created on the ground floor with many corners, clever acoustics and a café for the Direct teams. The operator is the Mezi řádky café from the Etincelle group of social enterprises, which employs disabled people.

    A cozy office
    The other floors contain offices in which we emphasized cosiness. They feature stylish furniture, designer lights, living plants and curtains. The layout of each floor is adapted to the focus of individual teams. The open space is complemented by meeting rooms and zones for joint team sessions with atypical furniture. The offices are characterized by natural tones and carefully chosen combinations of materials.
