As part of the world-leading gaming studio’s continuous efforts to attract and retain the best talent from around the world, the new Nordeus HQ occupies a brand new 6,000-sqm building in GTC Green Heart Complex, an eco-friendly development in the heart of the Serbian capital.
By rethinking the visitor journey and employee circulation and incorporating diverse new facilities for Nordeus, Jump Studios worked alongside Serbian practice Antipod to create an open, transparent, flexible and collaborative new environment for the company’s 170+ employees. The workspace focuses on wellbeing and a positive work/life balance and incorporates a suite of first-class staff amenities including a gym, yoga studio, music and gaming rooms. There is also a soft play area for children, a maker’s space, and a messy room for creative workshops.
The ground floor houses a large multi-purpose, 200-seat auditorium, with adjoining café and restaurant, allowing the company to host a range of internal and external events, including regular all-staff meetings and a range of gaming competitions.
Flexibility was key to the success of the project, acknowledging Nordeus’ ever-changing working patterns. The workspaces feature movable partitions that allow the teams to adapt the space to suit their requirements, along with informal breakout areas and meeting booths. The majority of the furniture and fittings included within the design were sourced locally, with bespoke detailing crafted by local tradespeople. The project was delivered on time and within budget.
