This office is presented as the unification of four commercial units on the only level of the building with a private terrace access from both façades, which brings a relief area for events and social meetings. The client’s required an office aimed to usage on a Management and Presidential level. Therefore, it was more necessary to locate wide and comfortable work spaces, than a operational use area. The initial concept looked for the consolidation of two boxes than could be read as space definers, with could be seen from the entrance, allowing them to be seen from a big open office area, which gives the impression of an even wider space. Locating the two most important offices towards the façade that lead to the terrace, a path has been left for visitors to access it without entering private areas. The terrace is also close to the kitchenette, which, due to furniture disposition, works as a coffee area for people using this space. The office that works as a reception for the visitors, as well as the meeting room are surrounded by glass and framed in wood, representing two big fish tanks in that central area. This achieves a bigger visual depth from all angles. Operational works spaces are hidden among wood furniture that belongs to the open area, and which are shown in repetitions as sculpture pieces within the space
