Openness and closure for Torus
POLAND Gdańsk-based developer Torus has unveiled the interior of its new offices. Its latest premises of 1,380 sqm are located on the 11th floor of the Argon building, the third stage of the Alchemia office complex in the city.
“The starting point of our project was our desire to create a friendly area that provided good working conditions as well as effective communication among employees,” Joanna Olejniczak-Suchecka, the director of the design department at Torus, explains. “The division of the office into more open areas as well as closed ones – such as studies – has a definite purpose behind it. This is to give it the variety of functions required for our team of more 80 people. On the one hand, we typically have administrative areas, which require more focus and closure, on the other we have technical, design and creative areas designed for greater interaction and cooperation,” she adds.

The open offices are clustered around a central, freely arranged area, where the employees’ paths cross. This is to facilitate meetings and the spontaneous exchange of information. Greenery forms an important element of Torus’ office, including both living plants and artificial ones. Much emphasis has been put on improving the acoustics. Along with special ceilings, partitions and felt walls have been installed. The space has been divided by cabinets and module walls from Barpan. On the one hand, this adds to the intimacy of work within a department but also gives the place an open feel.

Torus is not only based in Gdańsk but has also carried out its major projects in the city. Thus some details have been added to emphasise its involvement with the city. The names of certain districts have been given to the conference rooms (Oliwa, Śródmieście, Wrzeszcz, Przymorze, Nowy Port, Letnica and Olszynka). The photographic wallpaper in one section features an industrial crane motif referencing the city’s shipyards, while the fronts of the cabinets in the reception area have been decorated with views of the Old Town.
