As part of a change management and workspace strategy, the Senate Department for the Interior and Sport has developed a new work culture that is reflected in an open working environment. Different options for task-oriented work are offered there. Four team ports provide a needs-based number of flexibly bookable workstations. This includes meeting and retreat areas such as meeting pods, phone booths, focus workstations, lounge areas, meeting rooms and a so-called arena. Depending on their needs, employees can move to the appropriate areas so their colleagues are not distracted by meetings. The colour scheme of the entire area is derived from sports pitches, whose distinctive lines are also incorporated in the wall graphics.
The six areas are designed differently and are each dedicated to a sport. They are equipped for hybrid meetings (video conferences), among other things, and can be temporarily separated in the open space office with acoustic curtains, so that workstations in the team ports are separated from the walkways by storage space elements. The cafeteria supports communication across teams and departments as a meeting point: It also offers space for events. As a flagship project for the Berlin administration, the new office offers a task-oriented, appreciative working environment and promotes informal exchange and synergistic effects.
