It is an intriguing paradox. The world’s leading travel technology company that builds excitement of the great outdoors actually wants its workspace to be homelike, familiar and grounded. You read it right. Such was the uniqueness of the design brief for their new development centre in Bengaluru, India.
With the design concept given by a world-renowned design firm, and executed by the equally reputed design MNC Adrianse, the project had the best minds working for it. The primary objective was to instill a calm and uncluttered floor experience for the two-storied, interconnected office space, located right in the heart of Bengaluru’s central business district.
As Anup Surya, Design Associate on the project, says “The design intent was to re-imagine the workspace as an intensely productive zone in a homely setting. The interiors were planned in such a way that the flooring served as a continuum for smooth flow of thoughts and ideas across the vast workspace.”
With a requirement so precise, it was easy for the design team to narrow down on the flooring product with the exact features. The team chose two styles from one range in Shaw Contract’s repertoire – Honest and Familiar styles from the Haven collection. Haven is perfectly suited for office spaces where one craves for an emotional connection to home. In fact, the Haven collection is designed to celebrate the increasing fluidity between our work life and home life.
Surya adds “Shaw Contract had the product texture we were looking for to bring about the right consistency and continuity across the interconnected floors. And, it came with grace and sophistication.”
