The project – from ten to one
When General Electric’s Sweden office relocated 750 employees from ten different companies into a single office in Danderyd in Stockholm, this was cleverly carried out on a tight budget. Lindelöfs was given an extended mandate as the project lacked an interior designer. GE’s own London-based architectural office, Aukett Fitzroy Robinson, drew up the guidelines for the interior and designed custom joinery.
Do something good with limited funds
Prior to the move to the new joint office, GE itself carried out a comprehensive study along with its employees on how the future office would look, and analysed which rooms, furniture and technical solutions would be needed. This resulted in a report conducted by Steelcase on how best to arrange the building. The basis used by Lindelöfs in the process of realising the vision within budget.
