INNOCAD´s joint venture with KOOP Live Marketing developed, in collaboration with Microsoft, the “New World of Work” for modern, forward-thinking workers in the Microsoft Headquarters in Vienna. Throughout the space, architecture plays a key role facilitating “new work” in the functionality, infrastructure, and design concept. The team creates an ideal working environment by developing a unique harmony between human, space, and technology. Connecting all three floors is the central element of Microsoft´s headquarters which includes: a communication hub that encourages interaction with interfacing, circular furniture, cafés, various lounges, coffee-points, a library and less public retreat rooms that encourage a multitude of activities ranging from spontaneous meetings to power napping. Desk-Sharing, remote work, high mobility, resident – each of these employees gets an optimized feel-good working environment, which enables maximum productivity. 23 meeting rooms with different configurations are available and can be booked simply through Microsoft Outlook. There are also additional spaces designed for quick meetings or conference calls. 330 employees share open offices with 220 working spaces and 65 fixed working desks. The results optimized the total floor space by 10% with the simultaneous extension of the common areas, while at the same time decreased the office running cost. An average of 10% more employee satisfaction, 12% boost to productivity and efficiency, less floor space required, improved carbon footprints and many other similar positive results can be achieved and are already measurable.
