AUKETT+HEESE were commissioned by VMWare to plan their new offices in Sofia. The assignment was to fit out five floors (approx. 4,500 m²) of a newly constructed building in order to relocate VMWare’s expanding operations in Bulgaria.

The offices were conceived to promote open communications and to accommodate various sizes of teams for dynamic project based work. In addition to the office and conference areas, amenities for the employees were also incorporated into the planning, including; a fitness center, billiards, a cafeteria with indoor/outdoor seating and recreation areas in the building’s several atriums.

As Sofia is largely a research and development site for this global information technology company, the mechanical, electrical and IT components were especially significant. Included were a large server room and system testing lab, satellite server rooms on each floor, and a large scale UPS and diesel generator to ensure uninterrupted operations.

Completion: February 2010
