The Brazil-based architecture and design firm Studio dLux was invited by the Coworking AkasaHub to develop the renovation of their office located in a beautiful two floors house at the neighborhood of Itaim, in Sao Paulo, Brazil. They needed a project that could translate the identity of the brand and would be attractive for their clients.
Studio dLux proposed a reorganization of the entire first floor of the house, divided in common working space, director’s office and meeting room, also with design interventions at the reception, kitchen and an outside area for barbecues and social activities.
Since the entrance of the building there’s a connection with the project, through the mixture of concrete, white walls and plywood. One of the highlights of the project is the wood panel that comes out of the reception desk and goes through all the space, hiding the wires.
The phone booths are shaped like a house, representing the brand AkasaHub. At the coworking space, the geometric graphics of the walls are composed by white painting, exposed bricks and a vertical garden, that brings the green inside the office. The desks in the workspace, the furniture at the director’s office and meeting room are all from Opendesk, giving a cool atmosphere of the space.
Outside of the house, one of the parking spaces was replaced by a parklet made by different sized wood modules, in front of a beautiful vertical garden. This area is also used as a decompression space, during the day-to-day work or a place for events.
