JKMM Architects’ website

Completed in 2019, K-kampus by JKMM Architects represents the kind of new workplace concept that now finds itself facing a number of challenges following the emergence of the coronavirus in the spring 2020. At K-kampus, staff can flexibly choose their own desk each morning from a range of workstations positioned to the front of the building. Ambitiously space-efficient, they are intended for screen-based working. Additional spaces with a more laid-back feel have been provided for break times and socialising.

Access to the building is managed, with dedicated areas for visitors. Meeting rooms wrap around the building’s two large atriums. The generously appointed entrance and social areas, complete with cafés and restaurants, are based on a clever design concept creating a three-dimensional space that defines the foyer. State-of-the-art, fully automated building management systems control the indoor climate to minimise energy consumption.

The colour scheme is characterised by its restraint and has been chosen to maximise light. The building’s geometric forms have been paired with warm and natural materials, creating an aesthetic that seamlessly spans everything from the smallest details to the building’s entire exterior. Architectural methods are employed to communicate positive messages about the company’s values to staff and visitors alike.
