There was a need to complement the open office plan with closed spaces for private conversations and meetings. Smaller offices with glazed partitions punctuate the open plan, allowing privacy and quiet for meetings and interviews, in addition to bespoke listening booths. Employees have the choice to collaborate, or to select a quiet room, depending on personal preference or the task at hand. The office is designed to meet current staffing demands, as well as the ability to convert space for future expansion.
We wanted our office to look like a second home or our favourite bar; a place where we want to spend more time, socialise with our colleagues and listen to music. I am convinced that the office plays an important role in our company’s ability to attract talent.Felix Edwards Mannheimer, COO, Epidemic Sound
Sheets of plywood, Valchromat and Träullit recur as the wall-cladding materials; selected for their robustness, acoustic properties and durability. The colour scheme for the interiors was fastidiously chosen to complement the existing building’s palette, while the original concrete floor was left bare and polished, giving the new workplace the ambient feel of an artisan workshop. IKEA pieces and vintage furnishings bought at auction were re-used in the newly formed spaces, providing a cohesive style that further strengthens Epidemic Sound’s shared identity.
