    Matraka is an experiential marketing agency. Its innovative spirit led us to create a space where team work, an inspiring environment and the constant exchange of ideas are key.

    Located on the ground floor of a six stories corporate building, the existing open space, confined by a curtain wall and an external gloomy terrace, called us to integrate the outdoors with the indoors by designing an inviting roof garden filled with trees and lush vegetation together with planters, benches and furniture. The internal space has minimal divisions and is open towards the new terrace.

    The organic layout allows the great open space to accommodate designers, account executives, production managers and their staff within co-working areas, random brainstorming spots and a recreational and relaxing atmosphere. The original dropped ceiling was removed improving natural lighting and ventilation.

    Two blocks defined by black, silver and transparent walls are linked by a hanging ceiling creating clear circulation paths. The great meeting room separates the administration department, providing it with privacy and safety.

    Matraka’s team is often at field work and office schedules vary. The 415 square meters space was planned accordingly hosting seventy working stations plus flexible spaces which enhance its creative potential and forecast the imminent firm’s expansion.
