Project Description

When Yara decided to move the administration of the company’s global activities and keep everything under one roof, they took the opportunity to evaluate the company’s work procedures, including the layout and design of workspaces. One of the main objectives has been to create innovative and modern facilities in order to produce a solid foundation that will meet and comply with any future needs and requirements. 

In collaboration with Yara and Lent, IARK conducted an analysis of the company’s work processes. This resulted in a more adapted layout with informal meeting points and transparent workspaces, allowing for clear visual communication lines throughout the central parts of the building; strong emphasis was put on this for maximum collaborative and internal dialogue across all departments. This is reflected in the open solutions and especially adapted supportive functions are be found within the building.

Upon completion of the assignment, the end result has reinforced and solidified Yara’s core values; ambition, confidence, responsibility and cooperation, this is characterized by modern and functional premises showcasing Yara’s distinct signature.
