The com­mer­cial of­fices in­te­rior sce­nario in In­dia and all around the world has changed to a great ex­tent thus, ex­tend­ing ar­chi­tects bound­aries of in­no­va­tion and ex­plo­ration. Gone are the days, when a workspace was lim­ited to a cu­bi­cle and meet­ings to a con­fer­ence room. Com­pa­nies are set­ting high stan­dards in in­no­va­tions in defin­ing work­place dy­nam­ics and cre­at­ing new ways of work­ing with­out bar­ri­ers.

space & De­sign

Clients have moved to hav­ing an open of­fice de­sign with flex­i­ble and ac­com­moda­tive desks and work units. Our fo­cus is on ideas of func­tion­al­ity and what users ex­pect to pos­i­tively im­pact the change in the work pat­tern en­hanc­ing work­force’s pro­duc­tiv­ity and of­fice re­la­tion­ships.

In the com­mer­cial in­te­ri­ors, the fur­ni­ture and the over­all lan­guage fol­low through thedesign of the lay­out. We strongly be­lieve in cre­at­ing de­signs based on each com­pany’s spe­cific ide­ol­ogy. The at­tempt is to bind this to­gether with the de­sign bring­ing to­gether the com­pany brand­ing through its ar­chi­tec­ture and in­te­rior de­sign. For ex­am­ple, if a com­pany’s logo or brand has a spe­cific use of colour or de­sign or shape, we cre­ate ab­stract ways of re­flect­ing it through the de­sign such as the art­work, pat­terns in floor­ings or ceil­ings or through other sub­tle el­e­ments.

The lay­out is also to be cre­ated based on this con­cep­tual premise. Var­i­ous fac­tors such as the clients re­quire­ments, the en­gi­neer­ing, the con­text of where the build­ing is placed, etc. are to­gether con­sid­ered to de­vise a con­cep­tual frame­work over which the de­sign is ma­te­ri­al­ized. The fur­ni­ture and other el­e­ments of the de­sign are then de­rived and ex­e­cuted.

tech­nol­ogy & sus­tain­abil­ity

For an of­fice a ba­sic re­quire­ment would be to cater to its tech­no­log­i­cal and IT con­sid­er­a­tions while lay­ing out workspaces since all of­fices work on linked net­works. The stan­dard set of ca­bles and server rooms be­comes an em­i­nent part when de­cid­ing about the place­ment of the fur­ni­ture in the of­fice. The in­laid wiring within car­peted floor­ing gives a much cleaner and fin­ished look.

Eco-friendly com­po­nent too is im­bibed through the de­sign. Fur­ni­ture is made with min­i­mal wastage and the ma­te­ri­als used are also de­cided af­ter a thor­ough re­search process on the var­i­ous ways in which they would be fea­si­ble and would cause the least neg­a­tive im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment.
