When designing advertising agency Bubka, Dries Otten and I were confronted with a specific building shape. The office is located in half of a banana-shaped building. We decided to take this even further and oriented all the furniture and walls along an axis to the center of the circle. The office is divided into five zones with two color schemes, where open work islands alternate with separate office spaces and meeting rooms. The suspended ceiling was removed, making the office feel higher and more pleasant.
The ecological aspect was also carefully considered. We recovered the desktops from the previous office and opted for a fair use of materials. All building materials can easily be dismantled in the future. Second-hand doors from Rotor DC were used to close off the separate rooms.
