Open, communicative, ergonomic - those are the three requirements that the new office spaces at Volksbank Breisgau-Süd were asked to meet. The renovation expanded the bank’s spatial capacities and at the same time centralised the internal departments. With a total floor space of 2,200 m2, the offices now have more than 100 workstations over three storeys. For the three room types ‘open-space office’, ‘team office’, and ‘single office’, it is not just the architecture that offers an optimal solution. They are also perfectly complemented by the installation of office furniture from ASSMANN.
An individual working style with practically-minded solutions
Nowadays, the office is no longer just a functional room. It has become a living space, in which the idea of comfort is also underlined; above all, the health of the body is important. That is why the Volksbank Breisgau-Süd chose the ‘Canvaro’ sit-stand desks, which are highly flexible to meet the individual needs of employees. The system prevents poor posture and back problems, as it relieves strain on the muscles and spine.
And it's not just the office furniture that we use every day that needs to be ergonomic. Meeting and conference tables must also serve this purpose - in the end, we often spend several hours every week sitting at them. The ‘Pontis’ meeting table by ASSMAN, which the Volksbank Breisgau-Süd also chose, satisfies these requirements. They are even height-adjustable.
Well-conceived storage concepts
Individual storage concepts are a must in the office of today. The ‘paperless office’ is still a pipe dream, and even with current storage and archiving options we still accrue a great deal of paperwork, as we did before. Intelligent and appropriate office equipment that supports the organisation of work is in demand. A selection of free-standing, wall-mounted, or partitioning ‘Allvia’ cupboards allow the Volksbank Breisgau-Süd to meet these requirements.
