The past few years’ evolution in the ways we work has made us completely rethink the very concept of how contemporary workplaces should be designed. Ways of working are undergoing profound and global restructuring in the midst of an information revolution. Factors triggering this avalanche of changes are materialized in a connected, smart and flexible way of working, which has become imperative in today’s offices, whether they be great corporations or small companies.

We are also faced with a world of online individuals and freelance entrepreneurs, with a concept of “individual work” which necessarily relies on collaboration. Such a digital revolution has enabled us to work from any place on earth, with fewer reasons for employees to keep to a fixed office timetable.

This contextual framework forces us to design workspaces with an atmosphere that must necessarily encompass two functions: one place that permits concentration, to work, communicate digitally or have meetings and other more homelike relaxed, cozy and warm areas. This new professional office tries to bring these two concepts together, using materials, furniture, textures and lighting from both atmospheres.

Location in the consolidated urban center of Madrid of a highly valuable building from the point of view of heritage and the renovation process the space has been subjected to are the key ingredients to understand this project’s sustainability. On the other hand, and from a technical point of view, this intervention is characterized by its utmost respect to the preexisting building and its reversibility, from which much potential has been recovered. Having documented low-entity finishings carried out in prior renovations, 1.5-foot solid brick walls emerged, along with carpentry, a structure of solid wood beams and small ceramic domes which have taken center stage.
