Payfit Offices – Paris

With so many employees relying on digital meetings, it's critical the building provides effective spaces for digital communication


Payfit is a fast-growing tech start-up that creates software for payroll and HR. Their head office in Paris is a 7000 square metre contemporary workspace, a former train depot that has been transformed into a flexible workspace with 40 meeting rooms. Each meeting room has its unique BAUX acoustic design that infuses carefully crafted patterns and textures for better acoustic design and a more comfortable and productive workspace.

Payfits’s global business operations require workers to hold digital meetings with customers and employees working remotely or in other countries. With so many employees relying on digital panels, the building must provide adequate spaces for digital communication. Booth-style meeting rooms have been purpose-built for digital meetings, allowing workers to work alone or in pairs. BAUX designs in the meeting booths reduce sound reflections that can contribute to poor sound quality and echoes on digital calls, creating an excellent acoustic environment for digital communication.

The design team have also considered another aspect of digital meetings – the background that frames interactions and conversations. Each of the meeting rooms has a unique combination of BAUX materials. Textures, patterns and colours provide harmonious backgrounds for digital meetings, with themed styling that enhances the acoustic and aesthetic appeal of the space. The concept allows employees to choose the room where they want to work whilst business partners and employees working remotely instantly recognise a branded digital space.

The building also has a studio space for teams to create digital materials such as podcasts, films and in-person interviews. The room has a high ceiling and glass partition wall, which could produce unwanted sound reflections. BAUX panels absorb sound reflections from hard surfaces and high ceilings, which helps to make better audio recordings and a calm and creative workspace.
