Dáme jídlo: food as the main feature

The year 2017 was one of change for Dáme jídlo. In autumn, the company, which is part of the global Delivery Hero group, changed its visual identity and offices, and we were called upon to help with the latter. In view of the youthful nature of the company, we designed the interior to be ready for employees who shun a permanent desk and prefer to find a different place to work at every opportunity.The variable workplace trend is one we have also pursued in other companies. In addition to an assigned workspace, each employee can also take advantage of informal meeting points, focus zones, telephone booths and an open space (the so-called work lounge). The employees at Dáme jídlo trust each other, and so can work from anywhere.A place to conc... More

Siemens offices in Plzeň

In latest commission, design firm CAPEXUS overhauled the offices of Siemens in Plzeň, the Czech Republic. The CAPEXUS architect, Tereza Bradová, chosed to replace often used basic colours with bright and saturated gradients of green, blue and red. Forming patterns on floors and vivifying the overall appearance of each room, the colours make bold statement:: offices should be fun! CAPEXUS architect designed and built two floors for Siemens.„Sitting at the top of the building, employees have a stunning view of the city.

Banco Solidario

Located in the center of the financial district in Quito, Ecuador Solidario Bank has a structure built in the 80's. The internal space of this floor had never remodeled, so the configuration was not very flexible, and the spaces were dark and very partitioned.We decided to tear apart all the interior walls, and create a very open and collaborative space, where the work positions were organized in an open plan.We left the original ceilings of the building untouched in some areas, and painted them in a light corporate color, and used contrast with plain white ceilings to mark off the working spacesSome private offices and meeting rooms were closed with glass partitions, not interrupting the visual communication between the spaces and the conc...

EF - Education First Offices - Quito - Ecuador

The office is located in the heart of the financial district in Quito, the capital of Ecuador. The floor is divided in 2 areas, one for the faculty and workers, meeting rooms and conference rooms, and the other half for classrooms and student areas.In the center the reception area welcomes the visitors, with a lounge where staff, visitors and students can rest or wait for their next class. Since the ceilings were not that high, we decided to play with them in different ways. In most areas we took them completely away and painted them in black to make them “disappear”. In the classrooms, where more lighting, sound and projection was needed, we used lower ceilings to cover all the installations.Most of the office concept is open space, and wh... More

Globant Workplace Design

The inspiration was nature. Since the organization works in a very collaborative way, the theme was then woven with elements which support co-working. The design style adapted was modern yet with a theme of nature interwoven. So right from the moss in the reception, to the “ walk in the woods “ towards the cafeteria or the “ learning tree “ collaborative space to the acrylic birds in the ceiling to the grass floor in café, every space has a touch of this theme. The office is spread across 2 floors with almost 40,000 sft of carpet area on each level. With 1200 nos of 120 degree workstations, it can become a maze to move around and find your path. Hence we divided the entire office in 4 quadrants, each of which has a steel pipe... More

REHABILITATION FOR THE NEW HEADQUARTERS OF GANA

Anytime you have to design a place to work, able to communicate its company philosophy and foster its activity development, is an atractive and difficult challenge; but if this office is going to be your new headquarters, this challenge gets huge and powerful.For us, this project for GANA’s new headquarters emerged full of ideas and illusion, based on a place with great location and possibilities. Features as the traditional flooring tiles from the 30’s, views to Santiago’s church, or the access from Alcazabilla street, make of this project a valuable opportunity. Thus, the key of this design is to empower the existing elements, as an oposition to the contemporary elements required for the activity itself.From a perspective of simplicity, t... More

Atelier Kirkos

Marked by a presence of strong sculptural elements, Atelier Kirkos, was visualized as an office space that would break stereotypes and defy conventionality. Introducing layers of monochromatic components, Kirkos uses parametric modeling to introduce dynamism to the spaces, bringing fluidity in the visual dimension.Located in Punjab, India, the office was designed for Mr. Ravijeet, a reputed Civil Contractor. His experience in the field and will to experiment allowed him to partake in the execution of the project, which came in useful while designing for the atypical site. With a clear width of 38 feet, the site was a column free space—a feature that was not to be overlooked. Since the office was to primarily host meetings in the future, the... More
