The concept was to create a fusion between meeting areas, teamwork areas, individual spaces and the expected decompression and leisure time. intended as a dynamic and vibrant open space with the aim to create spaces and experiences that discover the soul of the project, the function and the emotions of the people that interact with it. The firm believes that design is problem-solving, the process of finding the simplest and most logical solutions. Beauty is merely a by-product of the inherent simplicity and honesty of the design. The space had to differ from the usual office space, where usual atmosphere would be for the people to work at their desk. In the context of several projects and group of people working together at the same time, the aim was to make people from different teams feel like sharing a single space. Soft textures, adding gentle atmosphere to the space, while emphasizing the boldness of the solid materials. This rhythm is combined with the softer elements of the material palette to create a space that is naturally light and conducive to communal working. This contrasts with the wood and polished concrete floors, with hints of pop color and texture appearing as a wholesome space. Transparency allows the various segregations to seamlessly flow into one another – the character thus pervades throughout the facility. Custom-designed desks create a pleasant contrast with the wall finishes with close feeling to the human touch. Ringing the open workspace are 4 private offices, 2 conference rooms one open and another one enclosed. Unlike the traditional enclosed cubicle, separated by opaque half-walls from its neighboring workspace, the cubicles are crafted from glass .From a distance, the office cubicles appear monolithic. We designed break-out areas designed to maximize interaction between the various companies, making for a vibrant and lively work environment. By grouping the cubicle structures into quadrants, we imagine workers moving around the objects and interacting within the shared office landscape. Experimenting with the hexagonal ceiling design, it adds quirky and playful elements to the space unlike having a simple design. Cubicles act as a series of minimal objects that occupy, frame, and define regions by inhabiting a larger room The color palette further facilitates visual connection and the modulation of flow and lounge spaces. Black framed glass cubicles , open workspaces and landscape sit as contrasting, minimal objects within the exposed ceiling, grey walls, and washed-out concrete floors. The only accent colors are the de-saturated orange, grey and blue walls, that help to subtly articulate the different areas, while not completely separating one from the other. Furniture pieces were selected according to their ability to perform functionally and aesthetically over time. Occupying this structure is a lounge seating area, pantry, meeting room, bathroom and storage. Light, air and greenery. The architectural trinity which makes a space vital and pleasant and brings peace and tranquility to the user. Blue meeting rooms are intentionally designed in a way to make it feel like private place away from the hustle and bustle, employing mostly metal finishes with comforting potted plants. It also creates a fresh and free atmosphere for daily life. While giving different personalities in each space, this approach allows users to relax and relieve stress.
