This is a 4000 sft office that we designed and executed in 40 days flat. Akshay Narvekar came to us with a space in the Mafatlal Mills having 13' feet height, coffered ceilings and gorgeous arched windows along the periphery. The office is designed like a co-working space with large tables. A central transformative space has a largish living room like feel with a 10' island like bar in pink tiles which also serves as a library. The flooring in this space is a cubist pattern similar to what is in the pantry, which has an equally cheerful palette.
The coffered ceiling is sealed with a neutral grey colour, the walls are in a distressed finish and the rest of the office floor is covered with a cementitious grey tile. Large floor to ceiling burma teakwood framed glass partitions enclose the conference room, the CEOs cabin and the two phone booths which bookend the length of the office space. A melee of services overlap each other in a carefully designed ceiling layout to integrate the AC ducts, the fire fighting, the electricals, the lights, speakers, sound system, wifi etc.
All in all, the idea was to create a happy work space, one that the inhabitants would want to come back to on a Monday morning!
