Lapis Bureau (LxB)
Breaking away from traditional office geometry, the design introduces a human-friendly environment with flexible spaces cleverly organized as "boxes in the box". These include a spacious main meeting room, cozy booths for small rendezvous or online meetings, quiet multifunctional niches, and efficiently hidden storage spaces, as well as a hybrid area for restoration and smart work.
A standout features of the office is the bold diagonal metal tunnel at the entrance, which acts as an iconic landmark, filtering the reception area and the open working space. This unique element also pierces the meeting room, creating a buffer space with an integrated slanted pantry counter.
The layout was carefully planned to allow simultaneous activities, fostering co-existence without interferences. It accommodates individual operations, small internal consultations, onsite and remote meetings. Ergonomics and well-being were prioritized, leading to the development of flexible and diverse areas for hybrid tasks and relaxation.
“Our goal was to create a storytelling through the design of the new offices, rather than a mere aesthetic and spatial solution".
