ARQX Arquitectos as Architects

The concept allows the ideals that govern the company and, therefore, is based on mobility and self-sustainability. The organisation of the space allows the open space distribution to growth and redesign itself, given the growth factor of an technological enterprise as FLOW. The Pre-existence reveals an obsolete spatial business organisation that does not value interaction but instead isolation. It was clear from the start the goal to reach an open minded industrialised environment.

It was noticed that FLOW is based on basic concepts such as mobility and detachment from the past through the thought revolution, in order to combat prejudices installed in this field of the market. The architectural design intended to echo these ideals in place. The reconfiguring of the space and opting for a strong mobility concept factor, was in place through the arrangement of furniture and the minimum use of fixed elements.

The option was to apply a distribution logic through dynamism and movement, implementing a “W” shaped moment , responsible the growth of the space itself. The common areas for work are, undoubtedly, those that required the most attention on our part, as the aim was to provide in this area collective work characteristics in order that the team feeling is maintained throughout the whole space. However never neglecting privacy and comfort of each user, creating 3 small isolations Boxes along the path. All work areas communicate directly with each other and with the central social points such as living, leisure and rest areas.
