    For the concept design of our new office, we reflected on our team and daily activities. What do we require from a space when we come in for work? What makes for the right atmosphere to work in, and how can we project company values and philosophy onto a spatial design? What will work look like in the near future, now that Millennials are increasingly entering the labour market? What will they want? What do we want?

    What used to be considered a duty performed from 9—5, during which one sat individually inside a cubicle while responding to a single phone and computer, has changed a lot in the present day world. We have been shaped by a stream of new ways to communicate, and along with it came a new work mentality. A global internet connection proved we can actually work from any place at any given time, driving fixed schedules close to obsolete, and the reasons for employees to go work inside an office less and less convincible.

    When at work, we plan, strategize and design on a daily basis. Innovation and creativity have become the way to success, making us think of professional growth as something personal, now that both lives are gradually more intertwined. We work to live and live to work with satisfaction, turning a job into something close to a lifestyle that should be capable of fitting various employee’s personalities.

    As a result, flexibility has become the key concept design of every office space, be it our own work space in Barcelona –A white canvas that invites you to feel free, comfortable and connected–, or the offices of clients like Roche or King that have to fit thousands of personalities and ideas inside one company philosophy and over various buildings.
