This office space was designed by Lagranja Design for a Barcelona-based startup, Typeform. The office is about 2000 square meter (approx. 21,527 square foot) large but the interior didn’t work for the company’s unconventional needs as they operate as a small community of multicultural and talented individuals, they wanted their new modern office space to convey that and most definitely it does.
The use of a vertical garden as a partition is refreshing and gives a sense of openness to the work space as the partition allows air, sound and sight to pass through. In my opinion, I love the idea of having the light directly attached on the frame, it would make the ceiling look cleaner, hide away the wires, doesn't block the ray of natural light above and also gives shadow to the plants.
A bar at the reception area, which is outfitted with beer taps and food. The space invites the employees to have breakfast when they arrive, a beer on their way out, and as a place to gather as needed.
The two huge columns replace the table legs. I think it would be better if the table was made of concrete, the same material as the columns, and giving it a bit more thickness, to make it stands out as something not just a wooden table. Love the lighting.
Pantry area for gatherings.
Live plants were incorporated throughout, helping to add fresh air for everyone working. In total, there are 810 plants, which are kept alive by a gardener there.
Often during a chit chat with friends I would mention that the application of live plants is cruel to interior space. Their immediate response is always "yes it is great to have a green wall, but real plants need maintenance (which is troublesome) so let's have a plastic green wall." I disagree that we should put away live plants because of the maintenance required because the liveliness a live plant gives to the air cannot be replaced by a false one, so do the abilities of some plants to clean the indoor air and give fresh smell. Think again. Basically all the elements we put indoor need maintenance. The chair would break in some time. The wood floor needs refurnishing. The light bulbs would go off. So why are we giving up the fresh air? Even if you put a false plant there you would have to clean the dust on it so that it would not look dead and dumb. Also, isn't it enjoyable to watch the plants grow instead of a view that never change?
Meeting rooms are distinguished by color making it easy for everyone to know which room to go to.
Massive co-working table sits under a metal frame that holds various green plants and lamps by Lagranja Design. The lamp design here is very appealing to me as it distinguishes the working area and in a way make you feel more conscious and concentrate because of the surrounding shape of the lamp.
A tiered, semicircular space hosts presentations and group meetings.
