Bayer, an international company active in health care and food production, has decided to modernize its Warsaw headquarters on Jerozolimskie Avenue. The decision followed the need to increase the comfort of current employees, as well as the attractiveness of the office to new talents – all by the principles of sustainable development. Consultants from JLL and experts from Tétris, which specializes in the execution of commercial spaces in the Design and Build model, were responsible for comprehensively carrying out the transformation process, including all analysis, budget control, architectural design, and execution.
From audit to project design
At JLL Group, we take a holistic approach to our client's projects. When working with Bayer, we used our competencies in workplace strategy preparation, cost optimization, and sustainability implementation. We also supported Bayer in the bidding and procurement process with value engineering. The Tétris team was involved in analyzing the functionality of the building, translating the audit results into space plans and design, and in the design work according to the Design and Build model.

Presentation of concepts is most often performed using static visualizations. In this project, we went further and prepared animations for the client. It allowed us to invite the client into the interior and show how the furniture, colors, and accessories will look. Bayer's representatives were very pleased with the opportunity to experience the space before implementation and learn about our proposals in different variations.

Employee comfort in the spotlight
We used two styles in the design, but we didn't mix them on each floor, so there's an element that differentiates them and makes it possible for each employee to find a space perfectly suited to their needs. On the one hand, we have home-cafe interiors in warm autumn colors. On the other one, modern spaces domesticated with live plants and moss. We have boldly interpreted the company's colors – in some places, they appear intense, but not stimulating. We also used them in the upholstered furniture. It's worth noting that the client desired technologies that would facilitate comfortable teleconferencing, so in each room there are large 75-inch screens and cameras with tested recording angles.
