We designed and planned this project. The entrance as well as the lounge area of the new company site of Instone Real Estate in Stuttgart were to be redesigned and constructed individually. The keywords young, dynamic, fresh, down-to-earth but valuable should be reflected in the new architecture.

The entrance as well as the lounge area of the new company site of Instone Real Estate in Stuttgart were to be redesigned and constructed individually. The keywords young, dynamic, fresh, down-to-earth but valuable should be reflected in the new architecture.

The rooms which needed a redesign are on one of the lower floors of a multistorey office building with correspondingly little daylight. This aspect needed to be taken into account when choosing the materials and a suitable lighting in order to make the room look brighter and more spacious despite the rather dark location.
The main focus of the reception area is on the representative lounge with an image wall behind it. This wall of contrasting colour with matts hanging on it conveys a feeling of staying in a living room and thus invites to spend some extra time. The elegant but simple reception desk draws attention thanks to its background lighting. Apart from that it rather remains reticent compared to the image wall. A reduced and plain but at the same time elegant design language and material selection create a valuable impression. For the lounge area very cosy and varied furniture was chosen which divide the room into highly individual small areas. Hence, a communicative and comfortable atmosphere is created which helps to avoid an association with a canteen due to the numerous seats. This homely atmosphere invites to have a convivial lunch but also animates to hold smaller internal meetings. (The employees can redesign the luminaire in the middle of the room together again and again and also use the big blackboard for joint brainstorming; both activities which may boost the team spirit and strengthen the affiliation.)
