GEROPHARM is a group of companies that for the last few years has been
actively developing a number of new directions, and the number of
specialists, working in the central office, has also increased
significantly during this time. That is why a decision to move to a new
office was made in 2014. GEROPHARM considered various sites, but the

With a new office design GEROPHARM wanted to reflect the spirit and philosophy of the company - high technological effectiveness, innovation, development dynamics, commitment to excellence and focus on the world best practices.
"The need for a new office derives from the desire to bring a growing

site we wanted to bring to life the idea of office for communication.

opportunities for negotiations and work in small groups is supported by
its construction, interior layout and design. There is a large number of
conference rooms and so-called open meeting points that simplify the
processes of exchanging information within the company.
One of the most important tasks was the separation of "communication" and "service" flows - staff movements between workplaces and offices, and movements in server/coffee-points and back rooms. As a result, there are two additional dark corridors –galleries with backlights on both sides. Some photo pictures are currently displayed here. Besides, there is an idea to use back room doors as a source of decorative lighting.
