Our traditional understanding of workspace and culture are being remodeled.
The expectations, challenges, and life cycles of our employees are changing rapidly; how do we empower our teams to pioneer into a better world and towards healthy productivity? Then, how are we nurtured within a comfortable work setting? Workspaces today need to transform and evolve their pattern and conduct regarding spacial and personal hierarchy, inducing flexibility in program and systems.
This is designed to help accentuate productivity and creativity at working environments. Further, evolving as a co-working space that instills impetus within the teams and heads respectively.
When we observed the site with old existing trees we were totally aspired to design an organic eco-work space where all the existing trees are the pivot nodes creating a series of courtyards and atriums for the workspace amidst the tranquil environment that participates with nature.
With an intention of setting new standards for the company culture and creating a landmark and a sense of space through its organic architectural vocabulary and a stimulating green environment as well!
The green design of the building combined with ecological concerns provides optimal environments essential for making a climatically responsive building.
The existing small built mass at the sunken site was conceived as the pedestal for the main reception lobby connected to the entrance through a bridge.
Horizontal and vertical planes were juxtaposed strategically to inscribe trees creating a large central court, series of small internal courts and double heights atrium workspaces with amplifying the open ness inside out.
The Central court has extensive landscape design and superimposed seating arrangements with a large edge pool,
constantly flowing water stream, flora-fauna amidst tactile and visual frames of nature to enhance the concept.
Both formal and informal spaces integrated with landscape formulate the design with a conscious transitional circulation.
This humidifies all the hot air arriving from the south before entering the main workspace. We also intend to break open from the walled-system-arrangement of areas into an open-office system.
This invigorates transparency and organizational clarity. The idea intends to make a conscious step towards face-lifting office environments and focus on ecological green practices at work, their habits and the long-term environmental impact; Delivering an avant-garde design scheme!
We learned to compose sublime polyphonies of an affable office space around the trees, with the trees and for the trees.
The climatically responsive design is the result of a series of multiple covered and open to sky courtyards housing the existing trees, keeping the indoors cool and bringing in abundance of daylight for entire working hours.
The lean, light and resilient steel structure is used to occupy less space around trees and maximum flexibility.
