In 2019, the international corporate law firm Linklaters LLP expanded its Frankfurt premises and opened a new office in Hamburg. CSMM was tasked with the workplace design for both properties and received two 2020 German Design Awards for their architectural rendering of the firm’s corporate identity. The jury of the German Design Council was impressed with the new branch office on Hamburg’s “Alter Wall” canal as well as the redesigned offices in Frankfurt. The search for novel ways to make day-to-day work more innovative and more efficient is an integral part of the office culture at Linklaters LLP, and this served as inspiration for the CSMM consultants and architects during the design phase for the firm’s various offices. Our team worked very closely with Linklaters staff to create the forward-looking concept for the firm’s rental property in Frankfurt’s Taunusanlage with its open, easy-flow layout and design that embodies Linklaters’ corporate philosophy. The new work environment is quite sophisticated thanks to the high-end materials, carefully curated colour palette and floor-to-ceiling glass rooms with striking rounded corners. Each workstation and all interior structures have been designed with the needs of this leading international law firm in mind. Thanks to the open workplace structures, the design facilitates a vibrant exchange of ideas and allows innovation to thrive.
