leading german consumer credit company  team bank easycredit has recently moved into their new nuremberg headquarters which has been internally fitted by swiss architecture studio evolution design. accommodating over 700 employees, the structure itself was originally by austrian firm baumschlager eberle and nuremberg-based architects GP wirth architeckten. the vast three leveled office blends a diverse range of open-plan meeting, office, recreational and communal work spaces.

by translating the easyCredit’s values, the interior design has transformed a traditional desk, booth workspace into a new activity-based style of working. based on a strong identity with graphic branding, the spaces were created to highlight the company’s culture and vision. with all three floors demonstrating an array of hubs for solo, partner, group and team environments. programmatically, the building has been divided into different areas which include home zones and meet and greet zones, this has influenced the mixture of typologies which cater to the different activities of the employees.

evolution design comments: ‘the  internal  functional  organization  of  the  building  utilities  the  idea  of  a  city: a main staff restaurant and a barista bar with a vibrant ‚ marketplace feeling, the ‘homezone’, consisting of  several‚ ‘homebases’ creating individual  local  neighborhoods for the employees to work in, and the inner ring of the building as the ‘meet & create zone’. all these public areas are part of the city concept with parks’ and‚ street scenes’ to encourage a higher frequency of informal and accidental meetings.’
