The new Italian headquarter of Akamai Technologies is located in one single floor of a rationalist listed building strategically placed between the Cadorna Railway Station and Parco Sempione in Milano.
The choice of the building and the interior design aim at an open and flexible workspace encouraging collaboration and informal communication among the employees. It reflects the corporate value to foster a work environment that attracts, challenges, motivates, and retains high caliber employees.
Almost all workstations are in open space and provided with electric height adjustable system which play an increasingly important role in contemporary office enhancing flexibility, user control and ergonomic performance. High performance video systems and acoustic elements offer a seamless tele communication experience which is key for Akamai and their international clients.
Sixty percent of the usable area are support spaces like flexible meeting rooms, comfortable phone booths, stand-up chat rooms and informal corners open on the circulation paths. One large meeting rooms can merge with the pantry and the adjacent corridor opening the folding partitions, hosting big events in a single open space.
A game room with a ping pong table and a relax area with low sofas, hanging chairs and wall paper with green elements create a pleasant informal space, bringing a piece of home into the workspace.
Warm and creative finishes highlight all support spaces: multicolour hexagonal carpet flooring, oak wood for corridors and pantry, graphic wallpapers, acoustic textile wall mat and branding prints. Comfortable armchairs, low tables, joinery sofas, coloured furniture and accent lights help make the office concept a space not just for work but enjoy working and living.
