The organisational pillars for the head office of SHV Energy were translated by Apto Architects into a spatial and functional concept with biophilic design principles in mind. At the core and the main entrance of the workplace a green valley is positioned with a landscape of bamboo and florishing green environment. When you move from the valley to the workplace you will pass the forrest. This area is dedicated for all the formal meetings. At the outer skirts of the office are the mountains, the place with the most daylight dedicated to the employees and their teams.
An employee focused workplace with a valley of green and hospitality at its core.
Translating organization pillars into a new physical workplace.
“ With this office we'd like to set a good example. ”
Build on circular principles
SHV Energy has high ambitions and targets on sustainable goals. There bio gas products are supplied all over the world. Setting the example with this office we tried to minimise the impact of this office to a minimum. Together with Alba Concepts we developed a strategy for implementing circular design principles. Examples: bamboo flooring, recycled plastic felt panelling, avoiding glued solutions in all interior object connections, plants for wellbeing of employees, adaptive lightsystems with activity sensors, rounded shaped interior objects, water taps on strategic points in the office, carpets of recycled fishing nets, real time information on sustainable impact of SHV Energy, sharing knowlegde on all sustainable interventions through storytelling and much more.
