Teamwork and community spirit set the tone at doubleSlash Net-Business GmbH. These factors were decisive for the design of the new working environment in the software innovation center.

The new software innovation center of doubleSlash Net-Business GmbH, a software developer and provider of IT services with headquarters in the German city of Friedrichshafen, demonstrates the features of future working environments. Social elements such as teamwork, community spirit and corporate identity set the tone for interior design. A well-being zone, a gaming corner, as well as a roof terrace with a movie theater and an outdoor kitchen, provide a place for occasional counterbalance. The heart of the building is the spacious atrium, which also opens up to the outside as a meeting space and provides space for digital innovation and exchange in the business region Lake Constance and surroundings. The Munich-based experts for working environments of Drees & Sommer SE, a consulting company specializing in construction and real estate, were in charge of the planning, design and realization of the interior work.

The software manufacturer moved into its new headquarters at the beginning of the year, with the opening celebrated in April. The innovation center combines work and leisure areas – noisy and quiet zones – with community places and areas for concentrated work. The total space of approx. 5,000 square meters offers around 300 workstations, a multi-functional atrium, a generous outdoor area and a roof terrace. There is also an underground parking with 130 parking spaces, 20 e-charging stations and around 80 bicycle places for employees who are passionate cyclers.

Drees & Sommer’s work environment experts provided interior design expertise to doubleSlash. First ideas on workplace design and interior architecture issues were gathered in a joint visionary workshop in 2019. The result: a real WE place, where also the design is an expression of appreciation and reflects corporate identity.
