PLH has designed one floor of ‘Better Office,’ a new co-working showroom for the Danish contract furniture company, Better Copenhagen. The office hotel, located in the city center, is comprised of 3 stories, each with designated themes and commissioned to different architectural practices. The premise of the Better Office concept is to provide an alternative workplace for small and medium-sized companies in an optimally planned co-working facility. In addition to co-working features aimed at different types of businesses, the office hotel also offers a range of other amenities including a café, hotel, dry-cleaning and tailor service, child-care facilities, hairdresser, masseuse and gym.
Exclusive, open and welcoming
Working with the Client’s ‘corporate’ design theme, PLH has created an environment targeted to employees and management of larger companies and their VIP guests. The objective was to provide intended users with a convenient and attractive alternative for holding informal meetings or as an extension of their official workplace.
Using high quality materials and high-end furniture, PLH has focused on creating an exclusive atmosphere that is both open and welcoming. Variation and flexibility are fundamental to creating a good working environment, and the 'corporate' zone is therefore planned with business lounge, open workplaces, meeting rooms of varying sizes and closed office for reflective work. This allows flexibility for a wide range of activities, from casual coffee meetings, team meetings and workshops, to evening events.
At PLH we work methodically with colors, texture and diversity in our interiors. No two projects are ever the same, and our approach is to always develop a unique concept that will result in a new and innovative interior design. PLH's concept for Better Copenhagen emphasizes the elegant, timeless design indicative of contemporary Nordic office environments. By the same token we have focused on bringing a homey, informal atmosphere to the corporate working environment.
Greater work-life balance and improved job satisfaction
One of PLH’s defining core competencies is the planning and design of work environments for leading Danish and global clients. The guiding principle for each of these projects is to improve the quality of life for the end users of our buildings, and this philosophy is mirrored in Better Copenhagen’s vision to provide greater work-life balance and improved wellbeing in the daily lives of its users.
