Post am Rochus – flexibility for the “New Way of Work”.
Österreichische Post AG is the leading domestic provider of logistics and postal services, and also strongly positioned abroad with subsidiaries in twelve European countries. At the new corporate headquarters in Vienna – the “Post am Rochus” – the approximately 1,100 employees have had access to flexible, beautiful and highly functional workstations on an area of 22,000 m² of office space since November 2017.
Architecture and furnishing as an integrated concept.
Flexible, varied work environments create optimal conditions for activity-based work. The perfect balance of design, functionality and high-quality materials determines the furnishing concept that was tailored precisely to the customer’s needs by the architect team of Schenker Salvi Weber and feld72.
Diverse spaces for activity-based work.
All offices floors in the new “Post am Rochus” have an open-plan design. Colour-coordinated furniture supports the visual arrangement of the spacious, open areas. The varied and diversely designed work environment focuses on the different needs and requirements of the employees. Focus rooms for individuals or creative rooms for up to five people form the zoning in the offices.
Communication and discussion areas complement each other synergistically with rooms to retreat to for concentrated work. The consistently considered office architecture creates all prerequisites for the successful implementation of activity-based work away from classic desktop thinking. All items of furniture can also be easily adapted to changing team structures or work methods.
Clever all-rounders and storage miracles.
The shelving and cabinet systems developed or selected for the project with the architects and customised and series-manufactured by Neudoerfler are true all-rounders: they arrange the open-plan office floors in combination with selected seating products and create an acoustically pleasant indoor climate with their sound-absorbent surfaces. At the same time, they fulfil all the functional requirements that can be placed on contemporary storage solutions.
Large tables – known as working benches – are available at the “Post am Rochus” for communicative teamwork. These have absolutely no visual barriers and were specifically selected for project and teamwork on the basis of a user vote during the planning process.
Integrated acoustics concept.
The development of the acoustically effective furniture is based on extensive calculations. The implementation with acoustically optimised materials and surfaces was carried out by the acoustic experts of Neudoerfler, who were involved in many relevant questions of detail during the planning phase. As suspended acoustic ceilings were not possible throughout the building, most of the acoustic challenges had to be solved using the furnishings. In keeping with the aspect of lightness, the storage elements were mostly executed with oak legs, which gives them a floating character and conveys a feeling of cosy comfort.
High-quality, considered and homely.
The perfect balance of design, functionality and high-quality materials determines the furnishing concept of the “Post am Rochus”. All furniture was made from oak with a real wood veneer and combined with porcelain-white melamine surfaces.
A total of 550 multifunctional cabinets create the layout on seven office levels: lockers were combined with coat rack elements or plant walls, cabinet furniture has integrated seating. The range of services also encompasses 88 beautifully shaped, high-quality discussion tables and height-adjustable, 4.8 metre-long benches.
Neudoerfler was once again able to put its solution-orientated competence in series-manufactured customised solutions and its acoustic know-how to the test.
