Basware engaged Amicus to create an enticing and vibrant office space to encourage employees to return to the office after the lockdowns due to Covid in 2020.
Basware wished to encourage a warm office culture and collaboration, both in the office and with staff working remotely, focusing on the refurbishment of their dated office. The space needed to meet Basware’s global requirements for specific design layout and parameters.
Amicus worked closely with Basware to create a bright, vibrant and modern workspace with a colour scheme fitting within their existing brand guidelines. Working to the brief, the Amicus design team created a comprehensive design with alternative recommendations to suit the client’s budget. To increase the natural light in the office, angled screening was used to allow light into the meeting room and corridor.
A café-style Kitchen was built to create a “homely” feel with comfortable bench seating, chic pendant lighting and an island bench which serves as a dual purpose for break-out meetings and socialising. The result is a light and bright office fitout, enriched with vibrant, soft calming colours and finishes.
The space has been made inclusive to all teams, with the incorporation of linear workstations rather than snowflake desks, and more collaborative breakout spaces scattered throughout to encourage sharing, togetherness and team collaboration.
Amicus successfully designed and constructed a well-thought out design which has met Basware’s needs, both on time and on budget.
Amicus also translated Basware's company vision and values into a tangible space. Providing to their staff with a place to call home enriched with cool breakout spaces and brand-new furniture, they have not only improved team collaboration and satisfaction but also improved credibility and fortified their business excellence and competitive advantage.
