Park with training course


the medtech company ottobock helps people around the world to maintain or regain their mobility. now, ottobock is even mobilizing their own employees. and that‘s where we (being service designers too) are helping ottobock: with our concept of an employee park in simmering/vienna.

how do people work? what helps them think and exchange their ideas, what helps them to wind down and regain energy? and most of all: how can the answers be implemented on an area of only 1.200 m²?

we recognized walking as key function. in order to make the paths seem longer than they actually are, we set up winding, hilly courses. they lead to arbours and groves or along a little stream to the lake: paths that inspire all senses, and each one of them a royal road to employee motivation.
