Activity-based work - but make it colorful!


New Work, Berlin, 2022

French pharmaceutical company Sanofi wanted a versatile space four stories-high for its new Berlin office - for more individuality, flexibility and exchange. Bright colors and plenty of space for the Sanofi community support the team in its transition to New Work.

Now non-territorial throughout, the workspaces alternate between areas for open communication and quieter focus zones.
Common areas in pigeon blue, apple green and coral give each floor its own vibrant character.
The New Work concept is complemented by a cafeteria in pastel shades as a common meeting place for employees.

The core area of Sanofi’s new offices is the lobby. A breakthrough from the first floor to the second floor opens up the space and makes it more spacious and representative.

A wide staircase in sunny yellow extends generously across the lobby, connecting the public area on the first floor with the work area on the second floor. The deep steps offer electrical outlets and function as terraced meeting areas. Thus, the area thus becomes a dynamic meeting place where town halls can be held, guests received or short meetings held.

The company’s Berlin location was previously located in the Sony Center at Potsdamer Platz. In March 2022, the staff moved to a building designed by Tchoban Voss Architekten adjacent to Gleisdreieckpark.
