  • Industry Consulting / Business Services, Technology,
  • Contract Workplaces has designed the new offices of employment network Laborum, located in Santiago, Chile.

    The challenge of the project was to develop an environment that reflected corporate values in a single inclusive space both for collaborators and customers, while supporting an organizational culture characterized by innovation, flexibility and young spirit.

    Based on this premise, the project was conceived as an open plan layout, a large integration and collaboration space where closed offices and traditional fixed positions have been replaced with flexible work areas. The design revolves around a large central volume, which projects the corporate image materialized by the reception and the lounge, and which acts as an articulating axis between the public and private areas.

    With an aim to strengthen the integration concept, the coffee break room was placed next to this sector in which both collaborators and customers converge in an informal gathering and relaxing environment. The operational area in open plan was also conceived under the paradigm of integration, collaboration and flexibility: spacious 120° work positions with low translucent glass panels and comfortable armchairs distributed in informal gathering areas.
