Parimatch Tech corporate coworking space in the well-being style
The well-being of employees brings tangible profits to the company – proven by Parimatch Tech. The symbiosis of business activity and the lounge areas of a respectable hotel are conducive to creative breakthroughs and creative solutions. Opened in May 2021, the corporate coworking space overlooking the Dnieper is a symbol of the harmony of well-being.
Multifunctional space – from concept to implementation
The 860 m² Summit business center with a panoramic view of the Dnieper has turned into an effective fusion of technology and nature, a flexible space adapted to lockdowns, VIP negotiations, hybrid-remote work format.
The Parimatch Tech corporate coworking space developed by the ZIKZAK design bureau combines deepwork, lounge, relaxation, food. 70% of the office is without partitions. There are no places rigidly assigned to employees, there are unique boomerang tables, sliding walls of meeting rooms, a waterfall, Skype capsules, multimedia panels.
The principles of well-being were originally incorporated into the concept of the project. The premises adapt to the biorhythms and the degree of natural insolation. Floristic compositions, quiet rustle of water, sound-absorbing panels create an anti-stress environment in which it is cozy at home.
Intuitive logistics, instant volume transformation, different rhythm, change of mood, color, sound, halftones in the style of a VIP lobby of an extra-class hotel. Work on the verge of relaxation, an enveloping atmosphere of comfort and well-being. Corporate well-being.
In the deep-zone with increased sound absorption, they are discussing projects at the hightable with a panorama of the capital. At any time, you can switch to the lounge format: leaf through the tablet under a floor lamp, dine with taste in the cozy kitchen, relax with a cup of espresso in a wicker chair on the view terrace.
The team also created different lighting scenarios. We used dimming according to the dali protocol in the central and transit zones, which made it possible to create a calm and comfortable working atmosphere. They actively used decorative light in the form of illumination of a waterfall, panels, shelves, sconces on the walls, floor lamps. All these details only emphasized the general concept of corporate coworking.
Why the idea of Parimatch Tech office is interesting for businesses of different levels
The shift to hybrid work has changed the way the employee interacts with the employer. Highly qualified specialists easily combine several projects, change cities and continents. Freelancing is typical not only for large companies: office employees of all companies have felt the taste of freedom of choice.
The fight for the best is just beginning. The winners are those who offer their source of income, their labor units the most comfortable conditions. Including – the space in which you can work … while playing. Communicate, get pleasure from a visit to the office, a feeling of well-being. Parimatch Tech has flexible hours, but in the new coworking space, employees prefer offline mode.
What is the secret of the successful collaboration between ZIKZAK and Parimatch Tech
Leading global companies think big, invest with a long-term perspective, and boldly shift some of their tasks to core businesses. Architects and designers of the Kyiv studio ZIKZAK possess the necessary qualifications, knowledge of the market for building and interior materials. The coincidence of views on the arrangement of work areas in the void with panoramic glazing seemed to be mutually beneficial.
The precise focusing and timing of each stage set the driving rhythm characteristic of Parimatch Tech. The first draft is in October 2020, at the height of the quarantine. The corporate coworking well-being has been fully operational since May 2021.
