Out of the box

Why build a corporate building without dedicated desks and single offices? Why no structural walls and boundaries? Here’s why:

Walls mean isolation, isolation minimizes employee interactions. That means diminished interchange of valuable intellectual resources which, if shared, would spark innovation.

Architecture can facilitate many things. Swiss Re Next is designed to foster collegiality and company spirit, increase Swiss Re business savvy, boost the satisfactions of shared business achievements and enhance pride of place. Rather than boxing offices up, this architecture allows creativity and team spirit to flourish in open spaces. And gives “thinking outside the box“ new meaning.
