Description

Corporate architecture project for the American multinational Rockwell Automation. The office is located on the first floor of the East building of the World Trade Center in Barcelona. The premise for the new headquarters in Barcelona was to create a representative and functional space. A clear zoning division of the space and focus on high comfort for its users, considering the WELL concepts of creating healthy spaces that favor people's well-being. The proposed layout organizes the space into two parallel areas. The first part planned for functional areas such as the reception, the seating area with comfortable furniture for small informal meetings and a kitchenette with a wooden bar and high stools creating a meeting place. The second part, a large open work area where the different work teams are seated, with views of the Port Vell, Harbour of Barcelona. All the tables are placed perpendicular to the façade to avoid glare and favor the views. The workstations are separated by low cabinets and plants to give some privacy. The office has two small "focus rooms" for small meetings and a large meeting room with a screen for projections and videoconferences. The selected materials are based on criteria of sustainability and environmental awareness. Grey, white and light wood serve as a chromatic base on which the Rockwell corporate red of the upholstery stands out, which is repeated as the core idea throughout the different spaces.
