The modern office has grown from being a place to work, to a hub of social interaction, wherein ideals, requirements, and definitions of workspaces have changed over time. This has ensured that workspaces have undergone an evolution that has led to the creation of more agile, more collaborative and more comfortable workspaces that are built for convenience and comfort. However, sometimes behind all the branding, facilities, and other details, the core function of the space is lost in translation of design into reality, and it is the users who struggle to fit in, due to comfort or because they don’t resonate with the space. Amidst this milieu, the B-18 office stands apart as a space where dynamic and focused design intervention crafts an office for its employees’ comfort and to increase their working ability.
Office B-18, designed for an event management agency, is situated in a prime corner space within a larger office complex in the heart of Gurugram. A succinct design brief desired an office that was clean, minimal and most importantly, an inclusive space for all the diverse organizational functions. This allowed for the creation of a targeted design intervention with all functionalities, while keeping spaces open for experimentation. This was done to ensure that the client could mark the space with their branding in the future, without cluttering it.
