eBay commissioned Ellis Williams to interior design, refurbish and remodel a number of new flagship headquarters for its European commercial operations. The projects included the interior design of offices in Berne, Switzerland and in the Dreilinden area of Berlin, Germany.
The eBay brief was to design playful, contemporary, open plan workspaces for its employees with high workstation densities supported by informal and formal meeting spaces.
Each project considered and tested the eBay brand and ethos within the design concepts and responded to the brief by integrating social, leisure and work zones, where possible introducing outside dining spaces and activity / gym zones.
Use of colour, introduction of natural light, via polygonal custom-made glass walls and luminous ceilings, were used to offer a feeling of clear height to the existing building spaces.
