By entering the art deco-ish lobby, you enter an enterprise jungle. Tailor made suits meet young modern hip metropolitans. We wanted to reflect on that kind of community exactly! The goal was to make it a place for everyone to interact and connect- clipboards are seen throughout the whole space, and work as a communication tool between the users: by sharing ideas, inspirational quotes and personal notes, they become the creators of their own motivational environment. We wanted to create a community feel, to evoke a sense of belonging by creating the perfect setting. It is imagined to be a space where both small businesses and large companies feel proud to inhabit.
A working playground. Home and work. Most wanna keep it separate, here we aim to mimic the sensation of a home at work exactly since it is the place we feel most relaxed and comfortable. There are different types of conference rooms, but all are made to resemble a living room. And even though the accent is on community and sharing, privacy is not neglected- both being equally important for a better productive atmosphere. Thus, all the common areas: the multiple kitchens, playrooms, conference rooms, dining rooms and more- are blatant and eye-catching, while the working offices remain aery: with cotton fabrics, real wooden tables, and a lot of plants. The offices are calming and soothing in order to boost efficiency; divided by glass walls (that also have special foils on which you can write and sketch)- providing a sense of privacy, but not division.
Although seemingly random, every single detail in the space is carefully and purposefully placed. The space bursts with subliminal messages for moral boost and add-on playfulness, and props specially designed to build up confidence and release the stress, making sure we are all able to relax and not take work too seriously: the color-in walls, the Alice in Wonderland theme wall art (combined with the Berlin- style graffiti, for a dash of mix & match), ping-pong tables; even the conference room that stands out the most rests upon that idea- the chairs are custom made swing- chairs placed around a circular table.
