Changes such as the relocation to new premises always have the potential for the establishment of the working environment with the effective and quality use of space that promotes communication, enhances productivity and enables the well-being of employees and thus ensures long-term growth.
The building's architectural design, the division of the premises to open space alongside the facade and closed space alongside the building's central part, thereby dividing them to bright and dark spaces, has ensured that the organisation of the space by concentrating communications along the central part preserves quality open workspace alongside the facade.
By requiring the organisation of work in open space, there was no tendency towards a physical division of the space. Based on the decision to design a unified and open space, the functional requirement for dividing the communication part from the workspace was met by the visual division (the colour of the ceiling and walls of the central part).
In places where it was necessary to physically close the space due to the nature of the work, the glass spatial element was introduced at the point of the visual division, thereby creating the necessary link and continuity of open space. By blurring the clear boundary between communication and the physically confined workspace, an illusion of open space is created and the communication part is expanded.
The graphics in the space is added to evoke an association. Letters are used to create news. Newspapers Večernji list, Poslovni dnevnik and 24 sata have something to say and they say that in big letters. Graphics, designed in levels, act as an emphasis which determines public spaces and as a visual barrier which enables privacy inside physically confined workspaces.
