Apart from Bern minster, the tenth floor of the PostParc building probably offers the best views out over Bern’s old town, the Gurten and the neighbouring alps. The tenant improvement project and fit-out therefore needed to meet some particularly demanding requirements, with materials needing to be functional but also elegant and of a high quality.
The rented space of around 780 sqm is subdivided into individual offices, meeting rooms, open spaces and communal areas. a generously proportioned foyer, consisting of a reception counter in concrete, two lounge areas and two workspaces. These also offers the external employees the chance to work at standing desks.
Meeting rooms in various sizes are available as room-in-room solutions: their transparent design provides an unimpeded view of the Bernese Alps, while the acoustic screening specified for the project guarantees discretion for the conversations held inside. All-glass sound insulating sliding doors have been used to ensure efficient use of space.
HVAC systems were another focus of planning alongside functionality, transparency and acoustic screening: the active cooling and ventilation units used for the rooms create a pleasant indoor climate even on hot summer days. Compliance with the Minergie standard was assured during initial construction.
