ZURICH FINANCIAL SERVICES (BOARDROOM) ZURICH
Conversion and refurbishment of the executive office areas in the main administrative building of an international concern (1st prize competition)
On the strength of a study submitted as part of a competition for invited participants, Ramseier & Associates Ltd. was selected to redesign the boardroom of this international concern. The assignment involved combining state-of-the-art acoustics, lighting, communication and media technology in a modern, prestigious and at the same time flexible context. The leather-covered conference table for 24 persons faces a multi-media wall equipped with state-of-the-art communication technology.
The table forms a spatial entity with the metal ceiling elements and the illumination, while the ellipse serves as central theme. The kitchen wall folds out to create a large opening to the boardroom. There are also further meeting rooms and video-conference rooms as well as an elegant lounge with internet connection, all of which satisfy the highest demands in terms of design and functionality.
