Client Brief and Expectations : The journey is only 1% finished. Designing & implementing the tech giant’s office as per the given design manual & keeping the look & feel at par with all their international offices.
Concept and Design Approach :
The Delhi office of Facebook is also their policy office which works on the guidelines for their India operations. This entails a lot of discussion and meeting with various officials from the government & media services. To ensure that these discussions remain private, a separate Policy Room has been created in this office.
The reception is highlighted with use of black metal accents in ceiling & the reception desk. Lounge furniture with a mix of different prints with ethnic prints & colours contrast with the industrial look given by the black metal. A visually stunning 3D wall mural made with paper brings in a quirky element.
The bright yellow & blue walls make the space lively & cheerful. The little pops of colour via the storage pedestal add another dimension to the space.
The Policy Room is kept away from the main work area to ensure acoustic privacy. The space is semi-formal with panelled walls, custom made sofa & a hand crafted silk rug.
The meeting rooms small & large are all are treated internally to ensure that sound transfer is kept to a minimum. The space is also peppered with small meeting rooms called the “cozy” to provide a VC capable meeting space for 1-2 people. The training room houses state of the art AV along with flexible furniture for efficient in house training.
The break out spaces for casual interaction or for work are provided at multiple locations within the work area. These are the highlight of the office with their mix n match of various styles of furniture & colourful upholstery. A small open reading library was introduced here which can also be used as a quiet working zone.
The food & drink bar for the office also known as the Micro Kitchen is connected to a large open terrace. The terrace features various seating clusters, the shaded gazebos, the high tables with bar stools & the sofa lounges make this a multi-use space to host events etc.
