The re-design of the Sara Lee headquarters in Cologne aims to generate a light atmosphere that relates to the products and values of the company. In a first step, the design concept for the reception area was realized as a kick-off for all the office interiors. The daylight-flooded space includes a reception and a waiting area, as well as refreshment facilities. The curved information-counter integrates the registration and the visitor information desk as well as a service counter for drinks and snacks, while the products and brands of the company are showcased in the backlit exhibition wall of the waiting area.
