From the architect. We have completed the design for the Swedish company ATG and their new IT department.

The requirements from the client was a high functioning, professional open work space for 50 more co workers, with good acoustics and lighting, but also with spaces for both informal meetings and conference rooms. Our inspiration came from aerial photography with the typical distinct pattern of varied land surfaces connected to each other. In the interior design we used different flooring to create individual spaces in the landscape. The interior should give the visitor a visually stimulating journey around the office.

There are small meeting rooms for one, two or three people that should give a relaxed, intimate feeling, in soft warm colors with comfortable seating and a more homely feeling.

The conference rooms are a bit more formal in their greyish color scale and solid wooden tables, but still offering glances out to the open office with it’s strong colors and the movement going on there.


The color scale ranges from soft white and grey tones over to pitch black with bright colored details in green, yellow, blue and high energy luminous orange.

The office covered an area of 1500 square meters just beside the Swedish national arena for trotting.
