Slovak Telekom is the largest Slovak multimedia operator with many years of experience and a responsible approach to business. The company offers a full range of data and voice services, and owns and operates a fixed and mobile telecommunications network. And as well as taking care of its clients, it does everything possible to keep its employees happy. It is also for this reason that the company decided to extensively renovate its original office space on Bajkalská Street in Bratislava after ten years.

A space for collaboration

The realisation and design works are divided into
into several phases. The first phase (9th and 10th floor) is already in active use by the employees themselves.
This space is divided into work and worklaunch zones, meeting rooms of various sizes and a café-style kitchen.

Entry work area with colourful elements

The first impression
is substantial

The entrance to the work area gives you a "living room" feel right from the start. The space is used not only
for work, but also for meetings or informal gatherings.
The zone is naturally connected to smaller meeting rooms, which contain everything you need for business meetings, including modern IT technology. In this case, emphasis was also placed on quality acoustic elements, both in terms of construction and spatial acoustics.

Slovak Telekom is a dynamic and fast-growing company, and this fact had to be kept in mind when designing the new offices. The entrance work area has therefore also been enriched, for example, with a room for podcast recording purposes.

Shared workspace as a lounge

We have not forgotten the details and hidden meanings. These are the attributes that the designed square-shaped light contains. The inspiration came from the company logo itself. This element also appears in different variations on other floors of the building.

The biggest challenge for an architect, with corporate clients, is the need to transfer the brand and values with feeling into the interior itself. Slovak Telekom's premises are no exception. Using functional acoustic screens, we brought plenty of strong magenta colour into the space. We transferred the company's values in the form of slogans and playful eight-letter words to the core of the building - the common area shared by all employees.

Magenta workstations

Magenta is simply IN

Individual work zones alternate with a space that
has a hybrid meaning. It is in these areas that teams whose work requires collaboration, quick meetings
or cooperation on projects meet.

Enhancing the space is the application of innovative elements such as a mobile stage or acoustic seating.
To maintain the feeling of openness and airiness of
the space itself, we have separated these zones with magenta-coloured acoustic panels, which are also
a specific design element.

The project for the client Slovak Telekom was a gateway to the world of detailed perception of the needs of employees in the workplace from the perspective of the client. We placed even more emphasis on requirements that required our quick response or promptness in ensuring maximum satisfaction, on both sides.

Lockers for storing personal belongings

the circular economy

Slovak Telekom is a conscious company. That is also why in more cases than not it gives usable furniture a so-called second life. At the same time, the management has proceeded to share the workspace, which again saves costs. In order to maintain comfort at work, employees can store their personal belongings
in lockers that can be unlocked by scanning
a QR code
on their mobile phones.

The lights themselves also contribute to the economic factor and sustainability - the original tubular lights have been replaced with LED panels. To complete the overall pleasant emotion of the working environment, we have used harmonious greenery that can be noticed
in every zone.

Corporate kitchen with a view

Slovak Telekom's office space is an example of a working environment where, instead of being eccentric and completely replacing the furniture, the company relied partly on the reuse of functional and aesthetically matching elements.
