Race to the top -
New Work in Zurich
In December 2016, Johannes Reck entrusted us with the project of finding a new home for the techhub of the Swiss-based company in Zurich in the shortest possible me and implementing it to meet the highest standards. The new office was to provide the existing team with a new home and a basis for the international recruiting of new talents and senior managers.
In our role as project managers we scouted for venues and - after a pre-selection process together with the Steering Committee - decided on the office in the immediate vicinity of Zurich's main railway station. The office offers a perfect working environment spread over two floors with a view over the city centre and mountain peaks on Lake Zurich.
Together with Architekturbüro Kinzo, which provided the design draft, an innovative and inspiring working environment was created for this project. The employees wanted a workplace with a homely atmosphere and numerous retreats for concentrated work and collaboration. The theme of tourism and travel destinations was incorporated into the design and determined the design of the working environment. Classic meeting rooms, think tanks, all-hands areas for group meetings, workshops and nap rooms were created.
GetYourGuide is one of the most successful Berlin-based companies in the tech sector. Founded in 2009 as a spin-off of ETH Zurich, the company's headquarters were relocated to Berlin in 2012.
The GetYourGuide platform enables travellers to find the best tours and activities anywhere in the world and book them as quickly as easily.
Since its founding, GetYourGuide has raised almost 850 million US dollars in investor funding and is considered a hot candidate for an IPO.
"The office of the future must attract you like a good café where you want to work. Here you can concentrate, relax and meet your favourite people at work."
