This project responds to the need for growth and a more representative space for one of the most important music distribution companies in Spain. The company's workload and expansion into the American market implied increasing its staff – both in terms of employees and collaborators, as well as department heads – in its current work space, which was shared with other companies. The demands of the project included the total use of the space, as well as not interrupting the company's day-to-day activity, while also meeting expectations on a tight budget.
The office is located in an industrial building with a highly versatile and robust structure, characteristics that, over time, have led to the creation of multiple types of partitioning and finishes.
In this context, the proposal focused on resetting an extremely fractured space lacking in identity, restoring the premises to its initial state, and also giving it a fresh look.
The proposal takes advantage of the building's inherent qualities (large floor plan, generous light and ample height) to reverse its condition of an interior space by treating it as an exterior one.
The project is designed as an urban complex.
A diaphanous central space serves as an occupied plaza that houses the work spaces.
This area is surrounded by the compartmentalized spaces (canteen, storage area, meeting rooms, offices), which are approached as heterogeneous, attached structures.
Each one negotiates its formal condition and occupation of the floor plan differently, allowing it to simultaneously articulate the distribution of the space and reformulate the office imaginary.
