Yardi Romania, global leader in providing software solutions dedicated to the real estate market with over 30 year experience, wanted to open their second office in Cluj-Napoca. They chose The Office Cluj building and started working with us in a two phased project. In the first phase, we handled the fit-out and the construction, plus the architectural design of the first 3,000 sq. m.
The building had the capacity to accommodate more than 600 people and gave them the possibility for future expansion, on the second phase. The project already brought us a challenging situation: Making feel comfortable many different people in a friendly place was not an easy thing at all. Finding a common ground between them was our main challenge.
The thing they had in common was quite surprising: GAME OF THRONES! The book and the series have lots of fans among management and employees. So, there was the concept putting together THE FUN & THE WORK! Game of Thrones castles, bright colors and a mini meadow terrace with bushes and benches - that’s how Yardi’s employees are welcomed at work every day.
Thus, all meeting rooms tell their own stories. The rooms were named after famous castles in Game of Thrones: Winterfell, Casterly Rock, Dragonstone and so on. Two extra modular meeting rooms with a capacity of 100 people complete the whole picture.
The real challenge was to accommodate such a large number of employees without making them feel crowded. In fact, we managed to keep open spaces for more than 60% of the entire surface.
The relaxation areas were furnished with sofas and armchairs; there are 3 reading corners, a game room with a ping-pong table and a large modern dining room.
