The British Council, Vienna

Michael Bird OBE, Regional Director South-East Europe, recently asked us to prepare a concept scheme for the re-organisation and refurbishment of the Austrian HQ.


It was felt that existing layout of the office was not conducive to good internal communications, staff also felt that the office environment was ‘cold, sterile and unwelcoming for visitors’.
Our proposed solution will remove all of the cellular accommodation to create an open plan office area. A new business lounge will be created where informal meetings can be held with colleagues, external clients and partners.
The scheme is being costed and permissions sought for works to commence shortly.
