The Approach:

Concept: The innovative working environment concept, specifically tailored for TCS, seamlessly integrates the latest equipment. The color palette, featuring TCS Pace™ branding colors of purple, orange, and yellow, was carefully selected to align with TCS’s visual identity. Drawing inspiration from the state-of-the-art Steelcase Learning and Innovation Center (LINC) in Munich, TCS was invited to experience firsthand how different zones within a main concept can support various goals and activities. Subsequently, OCS+ collaborated with TCS and Steelcase to finalize the concept plan.

Design: The branding and dynamics of the environment were integrated into the appropriate work settings. By discussing these work settings in detail with TCS, the key needs for each zone became very clear. This resulted in a highly creative and innovative proposal of applications that seamlessly aligned with the goals and needs of TCS. TCS enthusiastically embraced this final proposal.

Realisation: The transparent collaboration among all parties, with each focusing on their expertise, resulted in an Innovation Hub that exemplifies TCS’s core qualities: innovation, collaboration, and development. The end result clearly showcases a new culture in a flexible setting, accommodating both events and innovative high-end showcases. Supported by the interior design, the Hub exudes professionalism. The chosen layout of the neutral, efficient, and interactive spaces underscores the quality and positivity of TCS without overwhelming. The event spaces, Makers Spaces, Agile Work Spaces, and phone booths together create a dynamic, vibrant working environment that is functional and appealing to both clients and young professionals. It is a work environment in which TCS enjoys collaborating with clients to create groundbreaking innovative digital transformations.
