Tactical architectural planning is crucial in the curation of memorable spatial experiences. There is a growing need for bespoke solutions, not just for the user, but specific to the context and requirements of a space. In post-pandemic workspace design, there is a need to recognize highly transformative planning methods, where the workspace adapts to the necessities of the changing times. The ability of workspaces to morph and embody a fluid design is evident in this new-age office located in the heart of Gurgaon. 

Located at the foothills of the Aravallis, this quaint 1,200 SQ FT office has an uninterrupted view of the range. The client’s brief expressed the need for an office which transforms effortlessly based on strength of its users and change in function of its space. It was intended to be leased out, giving prospective tenants the freedom to alter the physical space with ease. Equipped with the knowledge required to implement a dynamic design, the designers conceptualised two comprehensible office layouts, each with their own specifications. The varying sensibilities are executed in a singular space, crafting a design that  is conducive to change.

With people returning to their workspaces, the design needs to make one feel the essence of a home while the worker transitions from home to office. Thus, the use of muted colours and the use of cane in multiple places was a way to get the right balance between a workspace and home. The future of office design in a post-pandemic scenario requires it to be highly customisable, quick to execute and economical in its initial cost of design. The elements and construction are kept minimal and favourable to improve, to “maximise” the design and lease out as and when required. The design recognizes growth and the multi-faceted nature of a transformative office.
