SKANSKA IS ENVISIONING A LOBBY LIKE A SWEDISH SUMMER HOUSE
With the goal to redefine a vital part of every office building, by changing the lobby’s function from a transit area to a welcoming space, Skanska has collaborated with Danish architectural studio, Henning Larsen, to create a space with the feel of a Swedish summer house. The new lobby concept supports health and well-being in the workplace. The inspiration is Sommarstuga – the traditional Swedish summer house.
The new Skanska lobby concept can be easily rearranged to match the specifics of each and every futureproof office building in the company’s portfolio. In the same time, there are components that are common to every Sommarstuga inspired lobby. The design is based on several key elements: warm and comfortable light, natural materials, diverse spaces to meet and rest, and openness to the local communities.
With acknowledged developers implementing their international concepts on the local market and new co-working brands such as Spaces or Mindspace to launch in the following period, it is a clear sign for institutional foreign investors that Bucharest is a strong market and offers high-returns.
