The idea for this office is to create a comfortable and functional environment in which the luxury and the stability of the company are to be present in every detail of the interior.
The Brief from the client is to be no hierarchy among the employees to create the feeling in them that they are more like business partners rather than employees. Each workplace is arranged so that everyone has its private space, giving him the opportunity for privacy and at the same time the feeling that he is a part of the team. Only the owner of the company has an Individual office, which in its turn clearly defines him as the leader. A luxury, modern and clean interior design is required, one which will be up-to-date even after five years.
Interior Design of an Office
The interior design of an office aims to execute a number of important features for the company, which must on a subconscious level influence in one way the employees and in another the visitors. On the one hand, the office aims to be the face of the company it has to inspire stability and professionalism into the eyes of the visitors, to demonstrate that the company is serious and to persuade the customer that this is the right place for him. On the other hand, the office should encourage employees to give a hundred percent of themselves at work. This involves the use of countless clever tricks that dramatically differ from one another but the goal is always the same – the employees to be productive at a maximum level, being stimulated at most by their own beliefs.
Open Space for Employees
Although the premises is an open space, the glass partition behind the reception desk logically separates the space without the need of closing it with walls. It houses seven workplaces for the employees, a workspace for the receptionist as well as a seating for informal meetings. Molded board with concealed cabinets defines the approach to the conference room, restroom and kitchen. The door to the toilet is completely hidden in it, while the one for the kitchen is made of glass from floor to ceiling following the line of the design it gives the appearance of a logical extension of the paneling. Column almost in the center of the room is hidden in an elegant and convenient cupboard which continuous throughout its height, thus the column becomes completely invisible. The far wall of the room is designed with a luxurious library following the whole length of it, composed of backlit shelves without frames fixed on to the back of the wall.
The solution was to create a large open space, merging the office area with the entrance and the reception, utilizing a logical transition to the other separate rooms. At the entrance there is a stylish waiting area and a reception desk, partitioned in the rear with a glass panel opened on both sides, allowing easy access to the rest of the premises. Glass door from the floor to the ceiling at the entrance next to the front desk is the Cabinet of the owner. The idea is that every visitor is “Welcome”, greeted at the reception, but at the same time may not proceed without being invited. Thus visitors like suppliers, etc., stay only at the entrance, while customers are welcomed and seated properly, leaving them the feeling of being special.
In the meeting room the focus is on a solid and stylish table in the center of the room, allowing the accommodation of up to ten people. One wall is designed in an accent color, recurrent throughout the office interior. The company logo is positioned on it. Our goal with this type of projects is that the key concept of an interior architecture is to be present in every room, the materials, colors and shapes used are to be repeated in the individual areas to achieve a refined and sophisticated interior design that impresses!
