• Workspace Design that Leverages Creativity & Optimism through its Systematic Design Decisions | Envisage

    Tactical architectural planning is crucial in the curation of memorable spatial experiences, more importantly in workspace design. There is a growing need for bespoke solutions, not just for the user, but specific to the context and requirements of a space. In post-pandemic workspace design, there is a need to recognize highly transformative planning methods, where the workspace adapts to the necessities of the changing times. The ability of workspaces to morph and embody a fluid design is evident in this new-age office located in the heart of Gurgaon.

    Located at the foothills of the Aravalli’s, this quaint 1,200 Sq.ft office has an uninterrupted view of the range. The client’s brief expressed the need for an office which transforms effortlessly based on strength of its users and change in function of its space. It was intended to be leased out, giving prospective tenants the freedom to alter the physical space with ease. Equipped with the knowledge required to implement a dynamic design, the designers conceptualized two comprehensible office layouts, each with their own specifications. The varying sensibilities are executed in a singular space, crafting a design that  is conducive to change

    The first office layout starts off at the passageway, where the entrance door opens to reveal a chic reception. The tonality of muted interiors with toned down colors is established here, anchored by the reception table which has the *Asterix* logo embossed in MDF, in a concrete finish. A wooden partition that forms the backdrop of the reception, continues on as wooden slats and further opens up the room into a lounge. Behind the wooden partition is the pantry and reprography station and the area in front of the pantry houses six workstations, which enjoy an abundance of natural light from the massive window adjacent to it.

    The cabin and conference rooms retain their spaces in the second layout of this office, and hence are the only rooms in the office with false ceiling and fixed ceiling points. The rest of the office displays an exposed ceiling, finished with white paint to soften the appearance. A bare ceiling layout leaves more room to add, subtract and shift elements.

    The wooden partition, clad with veneer, tapers away from the reception into the lounge, naturally broadening the space and allowing natural light to filter in till the checked glass partition on the opposite side of the lounge abutting the passageway. Perpendicular to this wooden partition is a glass partition that runs from the window to the passageway.

    This forms the main wall to the right of which, lie the cabin and conference rooms. These two rooms are separated by another glass partition with blinds on both sides, for privacy, that also allows light from the window to pass through the cabin into the conference room.

    The transformative nature of the second layout of the office is reinstated; two more workstations can be added to the ones near the pantry, the lounge can be omitted to accommodate six workstations and the reception can be shifted to the right such that the earlier space becomes a smaller waiting room. The office now houses fourteen workspaces instead of six, an extra waiting room and a promise of timeless design.
