  • The Global Financial Market Leader achieved significant success by presenting its new office in Gdynia in October 2023. Covering an area of 8,000 m2 in the 3T Office Park, this project, completed within 13 months, reflects the Client’s commitment to sustainable development, employee well-being, and local culture. This case study illustrates the collaborative efforts of international coordination among various specialists, including Workplace.

    The Gdynia office was designed as a strategic center supporting operational functions, data analysis, and technology. The emphasis on sustainable development, employee well-being, and local culture reflects the company’s commitment to providing an advanced and supportive workspace conducive to collaboration and flexible work arrangements.

    Collaboration: Ensuring synergy between the design concept by Scott Brownrigg (UK) and the executive project by Workplace was a key challenge, effectively addressed through efficient communication and coordination. Involvement of all process participants allowed for the best possible reflection of the Client’s expectations and design in the final product.

    Sustainable Development: The project aimed to use local alternative materials to those chosen in the conceptual stage to minimize environmental impact and reduce the carbon footprint, aligning with the Client’s commitment to ecological responsibility.

    Hybrid Work and Technology Integration: Advanced building management systems and office occupancy control systems were implemented for optimal operational efficiency. The project considered spatial solution flexibility, allowing adaptation to different work patterns and employee needs, thereby supporting the Client’s commitment to a hybrid model. All desks are height-adjustable to meet individual needs. Each employee has access to a locker for equipment and personal accessories. The desk, meeting room, and acoustic booth reservation system allow for flexible workplace changes throughout the day based on needs.

    Cultural Integration: Elements reflecting the local character of Gdynia observed by the designers were incorporated into the project, thereby reflecting the cultural identity of the location and providing a sense of belonging to employees in the Polish branch.

    Technological Improvements: Enhanced internet connectivity and digital tools were implemented to support the effective adoption of hybrid work.

    The Gdynia office project demonstrates Workplace’s ability to integrate the precision of architectural design concepts with functional executive projects, creating a workspace resonating with the ethos of the Client from the global financial market and meeting diverse employee needs. This collaboration sets standards in office design, emphasizing sustainable development, well-being, and technological integration, showcasing the potential of innovative and collaborative solutions in the architectural and design industry.
