From the architect. In an office floor of 18x10 meters, were removed and repositioned the ceiling panels, glass and wooden divisions of an existing traditional workplace with the aim of doubling the spatial feeling of this claustrophobic site and thus house the offices, services and a large creative workshop for an advertising agency.

A cabinet 18 meters long was created, it remind us a sensual water surface placed in vertical that hides the irregularity of the longitudinal wall caused by the big concrete columns of the building.

Successfully this pseudo-liquid furniture becomes the thread of the project, which mutates its role while comes into the space, starts being a waiting bench, then is a shelving that holds books and articles for the creative workshop, after that becomes a copying area, finishing as office furniture for the chief of the agency.

Lighting is a combination of warm light hanging lamps and a set of cold neon rays, evoking the visual beauty of the classic 80's film Blade Runner, in a functional way they create the ideal combination of light for work hours.

The apparent electrical installation, the white raw concrete walls, the white resin floor and the reflections resulting from multiple divisions of glass reinforce the aesthetic intent of recreate this imperfect future cult film.
