"Cityscape": a workplace urban scenario
The spatial concept of Ultraconfidentiel for the Mumbai’s corporate office, starts from the roots and the identity of the company, translating the portfolio assets and infrastructures of the City into design scenarios.
From the entrance to the workspaces, the visitor's path has been designed as a succession of urban perspectives and striking moments. The meeting area gives a very solemn and high-end experience and the sequence of the enclosed formal rooms reflect the city’s blocks division. The several collaborative and informal working zones create smaller neighbourhoods throughout the plan resembling public plazas, while a large and green lounge area was placed as a filter in between the reception and the workstation area, like a city softscape, giving break and relax moments and encouraging spontaneous interactions.
Material selection was carefully handpicked and reviewed to best compliment the space. The simple and natural material choice allows minimalism to boost the clean aesthetic. The spatial configuration also allows natural light to be drawn to the common areas of the space, enhancing comfort and well-being, while giving a spectacular view on some of Mumbai’s most iconic buildings.
Flexibility was one of the fundamental criteria of the design. A workspace structured in work islands for the different teams equipped with small collaborative spots and informal meeting areas. The entire space planning has been designed for future business expansion by incorporating areas where work desks can be increased by 15%.
All workstation are high-adjustable with ergonomic screen, more than 75% of the entire workspace is directly connected to outdoor views and biophylia, in order to respect the standards of LEED and WELL certification.
