The Camp is a creative co-working space, located on the ground floor of the insurance company Tryg’s HQ in Ballerup, just outside Copenhagen. The Camp is a co-working space for tech-start-ups developing products and services within areas where Tryg sees a possibility of synergies. Tryg conducts pilot projects and partner collaborations with the companies in The Camp. The idea is that new perspectives and creative inputs from the start-ups will allow for synergies that will help prepare Tryg for a future where new business models will challenge the core business of the insurance company.
A compact design and construction process
The Camp has approx. 230 workstations placed on the ground floor of building 6 at Tryg’s HQ in Ballerup. The layout of the entire floor consists of a combination of shared desks, smaller closed office spaces, meeting rooms and touch down areas supporting a variety of working styles and collaboration forms – along with cafés and informal meeting places. The reconstruction and refurbishment of The Camp has been carried out after the employees moved into the building. It is a large project (the building is 8.500 m²), that has been carried out in close collaboration with the contractor, and in a very compact design and construction process of only 4 months.
Different zones and a variety of environments support creativity
The Camp has been designed with different zones giving the employees the possibility of flexible working styles with areas dedicated to collaboration, focussed solo work, recharging, relaxation and innovation. The variety of environments supports different ways of working and inspiring rooms create new thoughts and unleashes creativity. An example is an innovation area and several lounge areas with a homey atmosphere for informal meetings, games and relaxation. In the centre of the building regular walls have been replaced with steel framed glass walls in New Yorker style underlining the creative environment while at the same time allowing more daylight to enter the building.
