Skullcandy International Office by Arthur de Chatelperron + Hugo Hélène | Zurich, Switzerland

Nine years after snowboarding enthusiast Rick Alden founded http://skullcandy.com” target=”_blank”>Skullcandy, the audio accessories maker reached an important milestone recently with the opening of its international office in Zurich, Switzerland. Designed by European architects Arthur de Chatelperron + Hugo Hélène at a cost of around $281,000, the new office is centrally located in Zurich’s Escher Wyss neighborhood. Designed to take advantage of the 18-foot high ceiling, an open office layout occupies 4,700 square-feet space of a building’s first floor. As a way to translate the feel of a tech start-up, which Skullcandy technically still is, workers can operate from any number of workstations available. This encourages collaborations and a collective sense of community. The few enclosed rooms in corrugated steel serve a multitude of functions from conference center to product showrooms. Finally, as with any tech start-ups, a ping-pong table on site as a way to relief stress.
