Prodigy MSN was looking for new spaces for its corporate offices, not only with the idea of changing spaces, but also to create a new laboral culture that in first place be aware with the environment and moreover, increase collaboration among employees at different levels.
The designers elaborated on three aspects of their concept:
Open and bright to reflect the aspired future of Prodigy MSN.The openness and translucency are evident in the whole Project. The layout gets all the advantage it can to the daylight. Most of the glassed façade is free, but there are a few points in which some meeting rooms and privet offices are next to the façade. Those spaces are closed with glass, that allowed the openness and brightness we were looking for. In addition, the workstations are low and they have translucent boards.
Finally, in the hart of the project was built a long piece of privets offices, conceptualized as a glass box in which it was designed some graphic patterns made of vinyl to made these spaces more privets but clear as well, they translate clearly the intended personality or Prodigy MSN.
The design intended to produce a versatile space. The project does not fulfill to a predefined check list, but creates spaces capable of change in function as required. A clear example of this is the reception, which goes beyond the function of a wait-reception space; it is a node where employees, clients and visitors get to interact. it includes a coffee bar to make this approach warmer. There isn´t any physical board to separate this space to the work-space, and most of the meeting rooms are accessible through this node.
Designed to acheive LEED Commercial Interiors certification.
Environmental standards have been implemented in an effort to achieve the LEED certification, beside the fact that these offices are within a building that is looking for LEED Core & Shell certification, and that building is located in an urban zone that is provided by basic and accessible services and by public transportation infrastructure.
- The project saves more than 20% in the water use.
