“Office design – workspace identity”
Office design – BNP Paribas Cardif
The concept for BNPP Cardif’s offices was inspired by the fortunate location of the Ethos House building. Suspended between the glossy lakes and the sky, the 7th floor has a beautiful panoramic view of the North skyline and it’s surrounding parks, which subtly demands that the work environment be designed as an extension of the landscape.
The chromatic dynamics contribute to the refreshing effect lent by the vegetation, while the furniture, both office and urban style, offer a humane dimension to the work areas.
The client’s brief was to create a warm and welcoming environment, reflective of the company’s values, which would enhance creativity and collaboration between peers. For this purpose we chose to emphasize the contrast between several materials and their different states of processing, ranging from real vegetation and burnished wood to the more elaborate glass and metal partitions, searching for harmony in diversity.
Transparency, as a recurrent theme in the project, is combined with technology in order to create comfortable and practical spaces. The boardroom is separated from the reception and waiting area by a glass partition with smart darkening properties, which offers the required privacy during confidential meetings, while allowing an uninterrupted view of the panorama from the waiting area in the rest of the time, thus including the boardroom in the main welcome space.
