    The Helix Life Sciences Office Decor  | Studio Bipolar

    The client’s brief was to design an office decor for its workforce that endeavored to include every person, whether scientist or sales staff, in the company’s values and missions. They wanted the subject of their work, DNA, to be the starting point for the design concept.

    Visit – Studio Bipolar

    We decided to approach the space by deconstructing it into smaller blocks. Programmatically, space can be divided into broad categories; lab rooms, executive areas, open work area, brainstorming areas, cafeteria, and meeting rooms.

    The overall concept was to create a bright, cheerful and ‘organic, natural feel’ to the entire space.

    We conceived of using the basic building block of construction, a brick, as a metaphor for the building blocks of life. We clad the existing columns in rotating circles of brick, to resemble the helical nature of a strand of DNA. The yellow boxes left inside are functional, they are used to store sales brochures.  In the conference room, we laid bricks in various ways to resemble the waves of DNA strands.

    The bulk of the workforce sits in the open seating area in the midst of the brick helixes. The labs and the main workspace are separated by a storage wall with windows. These custom made storages are made like interlocking cells coming together to form a wall. The long windows in each lab, allow some visual connectivity between the main office and private labs and makes the space more inclusive.

    In the main breakout area, we gave a curving metal track suspended, from above, winding around the columns. Sliding whiteboards are suspended from these which help in brainstorming sessions for the workforce. The metal track curves into the cafeteria which acts as a deconstructed garden.

    With pine wood slats above, glass orb pendants hanging from the track, the cafeteria is a lively space for the young staff of the company to congregate for lunch. The walls on the sides are clad in the grass and serve as a wall of fame for the staffers.

    The overall space is bright, colorful and youthful with pops of greenery everywhere. It’s a huge break from the run of the mill corporate offices where the workforce is separated into cubicles from the get-go. This office encourages open conversation and collaboration across teams and is playing a large role in creating a new work culture for the company and its team.
