Ernst & Young (EY) in Bern, Tenant Improvements
Office with fluid boundaries
Since autumn 2016, EY have been living and working in the 4th and 5th floors of the newly constructed Postparc building close to Bern’s main railway station. The idea of an office as a village used by its citizens is the room design which is consistently reflected throughout.
The optic and haptic arrangement of the room is diverse and flexible. Partition furniture divides the open-plan offices into loose entities which can be further segmented by floor-to-ceiling blinds. Closed cubicles offer a quiet retreat for focused work. The entire room conveys a pleasant ambience of homeliness which is complemented by the relaxed meeting zone in the cafeteria. The library/archive is the heart of the fifth floor, a slender cube-like object made of spruce wood.
