Voestalpine Railway Systems – Office Interior Design

In the offices of Voestalpine Railway Systems, everything runs on rails. With this in mind, the 6th floor of an office building from the 1950s in a prime location in Vienna was transformed into a modern office landscape with high design and technical standards.

The color concept with its light blue and grey tones reflects the corporate identity of Voestalpine Railway Systems. The rail theme is a recurring motif: Stylized stainless steel rails in the corridors and the linear lighting system, for example, refer directly to the Railway Systems theme. The curved shapes of the reception desk and the wall cladding refer to movement and dynamism. In addition to contemporary office workstations, the creation of a high-quality meeting area was a central design task: this resulted in three meeting rooms that were precisely tailored to the needs of the users, right down to the design of the conference tables. Two meeting rooms can be combined into one large meeting room using a mobile partition wall, offering the flexibility to increase the number of participants from 8 to 24. A lounge area in front with lounge furniture and a high table serves as a space for breaks and informal meetings, both during meetings and for employees.

The lounge area is oriented towards and extends into an inner courtyard, which floods the deep floor plan with natural light. Particular attention was paid to creating excellent room acoustics, which have been proven to have a positive effect on the ability to concentrate. Office walls with high sound insulation, carpet floors and acoustic wall and ceiling panels ensure that excessive noise and the associated stress for employees is avoided.
