Cambiare direzione nel modo di lavorare

Progettare gli interni per la nuova sede di Volkswagen Financial Services, un gruppo finanziario impegnato nell’ambito dei servizi assicurativi e della new mobility, ci ha permesso di realizzare uno spazio lavorativo capace di creare ingaggio, connessione e nuove efficienti modalità di lavoro. Il concept progettuale, The Sense of Adventure, si snoda attraverso gli spazi interni pensati per dare il senso e la direzione dell’avventura, e per rispondere ai bisogni – aziendali e dei dipendenti – quali la comunicazione, il benessere, il senso di appartenenza e l’innovazione. Nasce così un luogo inteso come un percorso di identità, da esplorare, condividere e uscirne accresciuti dall’esperienza vissuta.

Le aree di supporto, caratterizzate dalle forme poligonali delle pareti esterne – che imitano pareti rocciose per evocare un ambiente d’avventura – guidano il visitatore in uno spazio informale ed eterogeneo, attivo e flessibile. I work setting sono disegnati per soddisfare le più svariate funzioni e necessità, dalle aree riservate per lavori a elevata concentrazione e telefonate a quelle più collaborative e open space; sale riunioni – dotate di schermi e sistemi digitali di prenotazione – hanno capienze diverse per accogliere comodamente incontri a due o tre persone, così come meeting più numerosi; mentre il bar diventa luogo di interazioni fluide e informali.

Materiali naturali come il legno, texture materiche e colori caldi, e contrasti tra forme rigide e lineari: insieme, creano un look and feel aperto e informale, interattivo ed efficiente. Un’ambientazione perfetta per ospitare, e guidare, il senso di avventura.

Changing direction in the way of working

Designing the interiors for the new headquarters of Volkswagen Financial Services, a financial group engaged in the field of insurance services and new mobility, allowed us to create a workspace capable of enabling engagement, connectivity and new efficient ways of working. The design concept, called “The Sense of Adventure”, unfolds through the interior spaces designed to give sense and direction to the adventure, as well as respond to the needs of company’s and employees’ alike: needs such as communication, well-being, sense of belonging and innovation. The final result is a place conceived as a journey of identity – to explore, share e come away feeling enhanced by the experience.

The support areas, characterized by polygonal shapes of the external walls that imitate rocky slopes to evoke an adventurous environment guide the visitor into an informal and heterogeneous, active and flexible space. The work settings are designed to satisfy the most varied functions and needs, from areas reserved for highly concentrated work and telephone calls to more collaborative and open space environments; the meeting rooms, equipped with screens and digital booking systems, have different capacities to comfortably accommodate meetings for two or three people, as well as larger meetings; while the bar becomes a place for fluid and informal interactions.

Natural materials such as wood, material textures and warm colors, as well as contrasts between rigid and linear forms: together, they create a look and feel that is open and informal, interactive and efficientl. A perfect setting to host – and guide – the sense of adventure.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
