Klein : Nouveau siège du groupe IDOM à Bilbao

The new seat of IDOM Group is located in a former customs warehouse in the port of Deusto Channel port of Bilbao. It has a surface 14 400 m2 dedicated to offices, research and development areas and social spaces.

An important objective of the project was to get a large workspace and diaphanous, with great visual communication intra and inter departmental without barriers between different hierarchical levels of the company. At the center of the different floors of the building, a hall serves both as reception area area to use mobile phones without disturbing the rest of the colleagues.

In the most extensive work areas many meeting rooms were built to prioritize teamwork. To avoid creating psychological barriers between offices, conference rooms and the open area, IDOM did not want a conventional separation panel with a fixed glass panel and a door, but a sliding closure that eliminates these barriers psychological.

EXTENDO, telescopic and synchronized system of KLEIN, was the one that has best integrated the different spaces to meet the target. Faced with other existing sliding door applications on the market, the EXTENDO system offers a wider opening allowing free passage area with no mechanism to the ground.

To pursue the concept of integration, in some offices, the profile is embedded in the ceiling and in others it was left applies, depending on construction needs. The special finish black anodized aluminum and has helped give continuity to the dark ceiling.

The system 2 synchronized doors allows them to slide by simple action on the first. They retract along a glass panel which is itself integrated in their rail.
