Urban look and excellent acoustics – Executive floor at Bachner Elektro
A new 100-square-metre office, conference and lounge area, planned by the interior designer Jürgen Hlady, has been completed at the new headquarters of the electrical engineering company Bachner in Mainburg. The office space for the administration of the business is characterized by its urban look and excellent acoustics.
There were two main aims in the design of Bachner’s headquarters: the creation of an aesthetically pleasing, light and transparent office environment and, on the other hand, a space with good acoustics. Jürgen Hlady is the responsible interior designer of the executive floor. He has succeeded to convey the high demands of the executives by proposing a harmonious concept of space, which enables employees to communicate and negotiate delicate matters in exquisite surroundings without any disturbing ambient noise. The excellent acoustics are achieved by providing noise-absorbing curtains, soundproof flooring, specially developed acoustic panels for the interior walls and perforated suspended ceilings. These materials are mainly dominated by a combination of yellow, ochre, orange and anthracite colour tones.
The partition walls do not follow the strict orthogonal structure of the office building, but create an elegantly curved layout of space. The head office and the conference rooms are both separated by semi-circular fully glazed walls. The occupants can see in and out unless the light fabric curtains are drawn. The coordinated interplay of soft textiles and solid surfaces, such as glass and chrome, is designed to provide a pleasant, exhilarating office atmosphere. The use of light, a harmonious mix of daylight and directed artificial light, is similarly well balanced. The transparent interior that characterises the executive floor highlights the positive way of communicating at Bachner Elektro.
