Project description

The seamless integration of biophilic design principles creates a space that blends natural elements with contemporary aesthetics. The reception area showcases bespoke joinery, exuding a sense of elegance and sophistication while maintaining a soft and natural silhouette. The use of curves in the walls, ceiling lighting, and floor design guides the eye, drawing attention to the Alantra branding and offering glimpses of the outside view.

Calming colour palette

The carefully selected colour palette, including the brand colours, is complemented by ample green accents, bringing a touch of nature indoors and enhancing the biophilic atmosphere. These design choices not only create a visually stunning space but also evoke a sense of calmness and connection to the natural environment and promote wellbeing.

Statement location, statement office

Taking advantage of the stunning location, harnessing the breath-taking views and abundance of natural light was a design priority. Glass has been strategically incorporated into the design, optimising the use of windows and allowing natural light to flood the space. Thoughtfully placed LEDs transmit light throughout the office, with a special focus on the entrance area, creating a captivating and awe-inspiring first impression. The positioning of desks has been carefully considered, ensuring efficient use of space while providing staff with access to natural daylight and the stunning view. The combination of natural light, curves, and Alantra green establishes a strong connection between the office space and its surroundings.

Collaborative core

Prioritising collaboration and functionality, every aspect of the office has been carefully crafted to enhance team productivity and communication. The large breakout space serves as a hub for interaction and teamwork, promoting a sense of community among Alantra's employees. The furniture and design elements are intentionally flexible, allowing for easy adaptation to different needs and activities, such as town halls and team meetings. This emphasis on collaboration and adaptability ensures that the space remains dynamic and supportive of a productive work environment.
