The parcel was traditional, making the corporate offices of a company intended to provide imaging service and financial and economic advice to professional athletes. The challenge was not only comply with the formal requirements of the office but to make a run play, in one aspect, something atypical of it.
In addition to a detailed and required in reference to the jobs needed, we should design a more informal meeting space and relaxed atmosphere where you can appreciate an atmosphere of great warmth and comfort, which also distinguish the significant investment.
With these premises, we became the first governing ideas of the project. We interpret this meeting space must be prominently. We also understand that this atmosphere we were looking for could be generated almost exclusively by a “living”, a private, but in turn open, warm and simultaneously austere and minimalist. We decided that this space had a key roll in the assembly. In this way we allocate 7 of the 16 meters of the front glazing to build the living. We managed to provide excellent visual and the river, and natural lighting that floods the space. Next to the living, and very connected to this, we place the two firms sharing the same visual presidential and guidance.
All the management area should be focused, and have the option of independence from the general work area to achieve greater privacy, should be required. In turn, with the desire to break with the rigidity typical office floors, he developed the second gesture rector, the assembly of the oval. We believe that this should hold hierarchical functions, support for president. It incorporated a traditional meeting room, and two management offices. The glass panels of the presidency, they may also benefit these rooms with natural light from the front.
The particular location of the oval helped produce the second desired movement, which gained independence movement entirely personal. Their morphology and treatment of glasses, made this was much more than a secondary circulation.
Finally, we had to meet the final requirements of the program needs. Incorporate a more management office and a private toilet area hierarchy. With the need to seize the light of the rear, located two private offices, and a semi-private, more linked to the general work area, which created 6 operational positions, and a meeting room for internal use.
We work hard to achieve language we had in mind. The idea was to neutral environments, very simple and minimalist. Using white as a base and applied with great intent the orange company’s corporate color, only in certain strategic sectors and certain particulars. We chose glass as almost exclusive closing offices, and an element that does justice to the oval. To give you privacy and further strengthen the idea of this body, we decided that this were the only sector to take thematic plots (relating to the occupations of their clients). Other firms have their frosted glass in both cases, releasing the upper and lower bands, so that natural light is one who unites the spaces. The orange color was used in full at the reception, main meeting room in a border that accompanies and reinforces the oval, generating an intense light source, and small details throughout the office. Design almost all the furniture, always with the same philosophy. Lacquered wooden furniture in white with stainless steel accents and glass.
We strive to leave no detail spared, worked hard on being present even in the smallest detail, designing anything that could give particular value to the offices. That was the intention, we believe that clients understood this.
