The new office our team designed for Reply in Munich’s Arnulfpark serves as the brand’s flagship and a model for all other European locations. The objective of our design was to break down the physical barriers between rooms and develop a work environment with a flexible layout that fosters co-creation and innovation. We combined open plan offices and private one-person or two-person offices with zones for interaction and quiet contemplation such as lounges, terraces and a cafeteria, giving employees the high-quality spaces they want and the flexibility to use them as needed.

In collaboration with Reply, we developed a colour and material palette that will serve as the brand’s Corporate Design in all branch offices, while also allowing scope for location-specific accents. At the Munich location, for example, there are distinctive, colourful large-format carpets as well as floor-to-ceiling living walls, either free-standing or on internal walls. A special shelving system is used as visual and spatial dividers for open zones such as the photocopier alcove or the archives. The new design has considerably improved the office atmosphere, not only inviting staff to work collaboratively as a team, but also offering ample space for social interaction when the workday is done.
