Mercedez-Benz Offices

Stack Interiors en tant que Architectes.

What was the brief?
Mercedes Benz NZ relocation of their head office was an opportunity to support changes in the business structure and provided the ability to adapt to new workplace strategies.  Mercedes reduced their office footprint but created a new vision in the form of an agile office that supports the business in working as one team.

The Staff Café provides amenities to staff and visitors and also supports both team and informal meetings. Workspaces provide agile work settings that allow teams to come together to work and collaborate within the office and with remote teams.  Alternative work settings support quiet concentrated work, collaboration, digital and in-person meetings. Seamless technology was integral to the workspace and for connecting with customers and remote staff.

What were the key challenges / material selection?
STACK created a sense of arrival for visitors and an opportunity for brand presentation and incorporation in the fit-out. Subtle details represent Mercedes Benz branding that can be seen throughout the space.

The colour and material palette feature concrete tones, blackened steel, leather, and wood, suggesting the luxury of a Mercedes-Benz automobile. The design captivates, fascinates, and provides a unique experience for staff and visitor.

Modern Luxury – timeless beauty, a combination of high-grade technology and craftsmanship. Black and silver were used as Mercedes main brand colours, while complemented with a warm tonal range of natural materials, such as leather, and wood, to give a feeling of being approachable and sophisticated. Modern graphic elements were carefully selected to support the brand identity.

Intelligent – Innovative solutions and digital comfort are seamlessly integrated. Wireless Audio Visual and Internet connectivity helped transform getting A to B into its simplest form. The main goal of NO cables hanging around was successfully achieved. The Café banquette and window leaner joinery were equipped with power and USB chargers for easy access.

Emotional – A welcoming ambiance was created for staff and invited visitors alike, that provides flexibility and consistency with the desired aesthetic. The Mercedes-Benz STAR was placed at the point of entry, mounted on a black feature wall. This wing-like wall with a subtle black texture borrowing Mercedes car aesthetics and detailing. The Café functions sit behind this wall and provide a space for casual meetings, collaboration, and eating. It was positioned to make the most of the views that can be appreciated by all.
