Project year 2016

In the warehouse of the former tobacco factory, the Lechner Knowledge Center currently operates, mostly as a documentation centre and a small office. The client’s intension is to transform the 2nd floor – which is currently a storage for plans – to office function where 67 workplaces can be placed. This requires architectural, mechanical, electrical, fire reconstruction and interior decoration.
The goal was to create a modern office environment that inspires creative and professional work. Respecting the original building but changing the function to fit contemporary needs.
The intention of the designer is to make the company’s work transparent with interior design gestures not only in the sense of space but also in the corporate structure, in order to reflect its philosophy, scope and graphic design.
