Vision Architects & Interior Designers designs a vibrant workplace that encourages transparency, unconventional thinking and productivity… |
The corporate office of IT firm, Antworks in Chennai makes for an inspiring environment for its employees, who spend hours tinkering with technical data behind their computer screens. Working on a principle of zoning, the 8,500 sq. ft. open-plan office is a seamless blend of naturally lit open and semi-open spaces.
An open pool of workstations allows for visual connectivity, free-flowing exchange of ideas and unhindered interaction due to proximity of team members, as do the semi-open meeting rooms with glass panels.
There is no shortage of creative wiggle room in this office, thanks to informal spaces positioned away from work zones like the rustic brick-clad pantry that fosters communication. The Rust-Oleum coated walls of the adjacent breakout area serve as a canvas for employees to doodle and brainstorm.
The quick accessibility of work stations, meeting spaces, collaborative zones and informal social areas demarcated by a four-feet-wide passage facilitates easy movement within the office.
Bursts of orange and red across the office act as a stress-busting panacea for tired minds, while vertical indoor gardens with planters instantly refresh and add a sense of vibrancy. A low-maintenance material palette of engineered wood, MDF, solid surface Corian table tops, gypsum board and concrete flooring reigns throughout, while exposed spiral ducting adds a raw aesthetic.
Besides smart controls, an assortment of lighting fixtures - suspended linear lights, irregularly-shaped lights, gauge lights and hanging lights and task lighting for workstations conforms to an analysis of user needs in specific spaces.
When a workplace encourages such a high level of interaction and transparency, the achievement of objectives like teamwork, problem-solving and employee motivation can never be too far behind. check out the visuals on indiaartndesign.com
