This is the Skype office from Stockholm, Sweden. It’s located in Munchen brewery and it was a project developed by pS Arkitektur. The office was designed to be used by 100 employees who are focusing on the development of audio and video for the Skype application. The design of the building reflects the company’s philosophy which focuses on functionality but also on the creative part and the fun and attractive side of the design.
The architects came up with a playful design for this new office. It’s a space that emphasizes the aspects related to interaction and socialization. The actual working areas are not less playful and fun than the other spaces and this way a feeling of continuity is created. For the interior, the designers used colorful furniture with rounded designs and friendly and fun shapes. Ball-shaped lighting fixture can be seen throughout the office. They are a representation of the company’s logo, the cloud.
This office focuses on the development of audio and video platforms and the custom-made wallpaper reflects this aspect beautifully. They feature images representing headsets or cables and, in the recreational spaces, they feature images of trees. The color palette is very diverse. In fact, each room has its own graphical décor and features a selection of colors and patterns. Given the purpose it was designed for, the office offers excellent acoustic quality and includes a large number of sound-proofed walls.
