Skype HQ

The building is located near to Clausen in a regenerated quarter of down town Luxembourg made famous originally for it’s beer brewing industry. The undulating topography of the ceiling is conceived to encourage movement through the office and is reminiscent of reflections of the ripples and waves from the adjacent river Grund. The ceiling integrates the lighting and energy efficient building services and gives an uplifting ambience to the space. People immediately know they are in a space that challenges office convention with innovative thinking. This project forms the blueprint for Skype offices globally to provide a more fluid, dynamic office layout that supports the nomadic, roving nature of many of the Skype employees and the way they work.
