Workwings Co-Working by Studio Meraki
The client’s intent for this buzzing co-working space was to add value to the already existing linear workplace.
There was an utmost need to cater to not only just immediate functional requirements of workability, privacy, aesthetics, and human comfort at the day-to-day office level for all the co-inhabitants but to go an extra mile to create an atmosphere of leisure and playfulness and spaces to foster a spirit of team bonding amongst people and companies from myriad walks of life.
The design was tailored to transform the previously vacant areas on the Top floor. The functions added to this dedicated floor were a 25-seater Lecture Hall, Terrace café, Snooze area, Library/Reading Area, TV and Games Lounge, and Gym. There were no structural changes/interventions done whatsoever.
It was crucial to seek remodeling in terms of color and its appropriate usage to be able to create a harmonious and balanced palette that would add the necessary vigor and dynamism to the new spaces.
The main design intervention was through color. The scheme was woven around maroon, green and yellow. Maroon is synonymous with the logo of the brand whereas green and yellow add cheerfulness, energy, and illumination in the aura along with visual calm. The finishes and furniture designs are softer, curvilinear, flowy, and easy on the psyche with subtle wooden textures interwoven with a selection of energizing colors.
The spaces most certainly become a cross point for new conversations, social engagements, business dealings as well as soul searching in tranquil corners. On one hand, there are louder play areas with games and entertainment facilities but they are nestled along with quiet rest areas and a small library. The overall scheme blends it all with a captivating interest in all these spots pushing people out of their workstations’ shells and breaking the stereotype.
