The image of Soarma receives co-workers and visitors into a space with a contemporary industrial dynamic atmosphere. ARCO Arquitectura Contemporanea´s team integrated a project in 147 sq m floor plan in which flexibility and productivity are the central elements.
The whole concept of the project starts at the main entrance, a red container on polished concrete floor from, making evident the company´s vocation dedicated to the import and commercialization of fittings.
In order to grow in space and capacity, besides reaching better communication and optimization, it was decided to have an open central area that fills with natural light the entire place, emphasizing the harmony of the color palette based on grays that completes with red and blue accents attaining contrasts.
The program was arranged to include different areas, there are 2 semi-private offices —divided by concrete wall covered in the lower half by wood— and 3 private offices divided by glass with graphics and Japanese letters on each door. The central area is open with three working stations with a capacity for 6 people each.
In the open work area there is vinyl floor formed by triangle pieces in 4 different colors to increase the motion feeling. Geometries were not used for the offices and private rooms and a gray color was selected to generate a neutral ambiance.
Graphics related to the company´s activity stand out. On the columns referring to the continents emphasizing the international character of the company and in the offices it ends with Tokyo trains diagram. A black aluminum molding runs around the perimeter of the offices. Lighting, air conditioning, CCTV and environmental audio were placed on the plafonds.
A coffee station —on a shiny black granite cover — is in full view of all inviting to make a pause to enjoy a drink without affecting the operation. The project carried out by ARCO Arquitectura Contemporanea integrates all the needs of this dynamic international company making the most of each square meter.
