WORLDWIDEWORKPLACES – HABITA (PAB ARCHITECTS)
WorldWideWorkplaces is where we take a look at some of the best examples of office design from across the globe.
HABITA – ISTANBUL
Sometimes, the simplest of designs are the ones that truly catch our eye. Whilst a lot of thought and time goes into the process of an office fit out, the design itself should have a degree of simplicity to it.
And this is certainly the case with Habita, a recently opened co-working hub in Istanbul that aims to sustain and cater for the creative community.
Designed by the award-winning PAB Architects, the space is designed to have an open character that encourages interaction.
The design is centred on the notion that the sense of innovation, creativity and productivity can inspire daily collaboration and interactions that help workers to learn from one another.
The flexible layout, with different privacy settings, also allows workers to find a space that best represents their mood and working habits.
In terms of design, the space mirrors the industrial environment in which it is set.
Natural and uncut materials are used to create a space that looks raw and in keeping with the industrial environment.
A unique nod to the biophilia trend can be seen with the plants that sit in recycled fruit boxes and crates. This helps to breathe life into what could otherwise be an overly-industrialised look.
This keeps the space fresh and helps to spark inspiration.
The 650-square meter space comprises 12 private offices, several open offices and flexible working units for those who wish to come and go irregularly.
The event space will host everything from presentations and interviews to workshops and performances.
Since this is an integral part of the office, it’s only natural that this area lies at the heart of the space.
The aim is to create a culture that enhances sharing and turns the office into a social platform where members interact and co-produce.
