Inspired by this client’s office culture, the interior architecture and space planning for this international company’s corporate office uses a concept that is transparent, open to exchange, and is an individual friendly working environment. Aiming to communicate company values as well as create functional and atmospheric qualities, the design concept has three main components: the welcome area, the village, and the open workspace. The welcome section features a customized display with corporate graphics relating to the history of the company offering a reception area, waiting lounge, showcase and a customer meeting room to create pleasant, informative and engaging surroundings. The centrally placed village translates its contextual approach into functional layout, performing as information crossroad and communication area. A variety of single, colored glass cubes create a village-like structure with alleys and squares that enable and enhance people’s interaction while simultaneously providing space for privacy and focus. Its structure hosts meeting rooms, prayer rooms, cafeteria, playground, open meeting and other service facilities embraced by open workspace lines, located on both sides of the windows. Offering an outdoor view for all employees, the working areas are asserted with private enclaves, which zones the open space and offers versatile functions for phone booths, media kiosks, and creative or informal meetings.
