OFFICE INTERIOR KLAIPEDA
The headquarters of a famous engineering office in Klaipeda, Lithuania required a new spatial organisation for a collaborative workspace where communication is encouraged and ideas easily exchanged.
Entering through the main entrance a small reception area cladded in Robinson brown oak panels was introduced. Through there the visitors are welcomed into the central hallway that is the protagonist element in the interior intervention. Once a standard narrow corridor, it now opens towards the working areas through a series of
glass partitions that allow for natural light to circulate and providing visual interaction between the spaces. The length of the hallway from the entrance to the meeting area is dynamically broken by timber panels and colourful sitting nooks. The nooks provide private spaces for work discussions, a quick break or a Skype call.
A palette of muted blues creates an informal relaxed atmosphere, balanced by the warm timber panels. The colour scheme evokes the tones of the sea as the office building is in close proximity to Klaipeda harbours.
