Inside Grey’s Cool New Ljubljana Office
Grey, a global digital agency that offers services such as advertising, direct marketing, public relations and social, recently opened a new office in Slovenia’s capital, Ljubljana, designed by architecture and workplace design firm Kragelj.
“Grey’s fast and steady growth called for much needed changes in their work environment. Our objectives for the Grey workplace design project involved creating a transparent environment to optimize communication, productivity, and inspiration for the creatively driven agency. Grey’s commitment to improved connectivity and openness required a dynamic, yet simple layout, with 40 flexible workstations, without glass or regular walls, or a single private office. Noise reduction, aided with big, wooden multi-leveled cubes, which served as platforms for impromptu meetings or brainstorming, would become key to avoid the pitfalls of Grey’s previous stressful environment. Our further pushed for stylish, comfortable, and ergonomically sound furniture, along with work-space variety. The 45-day project was on time and on-budget, requiring a complete overhaul of the geometrically complex, once-library and bank space. High ceilings and large windows in the character-driven building brought natural light, thus promoting workplace health and productivity.”
