The project is located on the 3rd floor of a commercial building on one of the city’s main thoroughfares. The client – a renowned human resources company – has decided to relocate its central office and endow it with a refurbished corporate image, dynamics and personality.
From the architect: In a 140m2 (1506sq. ft) office space lit by floor-to-ceiling windows, two sets of contrasting work areas are incorporated: on the one hand, at the request of the client, there is a private office and a meeting room – in a more conventional and encircled office zone –, and on the other hand there is an area endowed with a more relaxed character, an open plan with dynamic workstations, all of which encourages collaborative work. These two contrasting areas are linked by a circulation belt that communicates while it limits common, private, and multiple use areas.
A wooden hexagonal-patterned ceiling runs from the meeting room and fades into the different workstations, in an attempt to interweave both areas. The hexagons, layered on top of each other to form a grid, are built in a combination of different wood tones together with the company’s corporate colors.
The color palette starts with orange, which accompanies circulation flow; red is used in small proportions, and warm wooden hues combined with neutral colors generate, outline, and stimulate comfortable environments.
