BmesR29 Arquitectes redesigned the interior of their 20m x 8m studio space into three main spaces and various internal units that occupy the central space. The new requirements for the future use of architecture studio raised the need for a large work room for several tables, a meeting room, office, waiting room, bathroom and reception. Due to the proportions and characteristics of space, which has openings in the two short sides of the rectangle, BmesR29 Arquitectes focused on the working spaces and meeting room, while clustering the remaining spaces in the central area.

To formalize the organizational conditions described above the project generated a central body formed by a folded white skin which includes the services of the office in orange boxes separated that also creates the reception areas and waiting room with a simple fold, open by the two opposite sides.
Partitions and fixed enclosures and practicable have been done with glass to maintain the continuous reading of the central element visible from all areas as the organizer of the different units.
To organize the main workspace BmesR29 Arquitectes arranged a linear piece of furniture that creates open subspaces for each point of work, which share a single area where white dominate ceiling and walls to provide more light in area, like all main study areas.
