From the architect. This small intervention for a young publicity agency is based on the need for flexible adaptable and expandable space for their multiple tasks and changing needs, within a very low budget, since a large investment had to be made on hardware, software and specialized photographic, film and editing equipment.

Parallel to cost reduction the scheme had to provide a strong and fresh image to the agency as this was their first formal office; our response was to remove all the standard anodyne finishes and leave all services and the concrete and steel structure bare, obtaining a flexible raw container where we could insert pieces of furniture or containers of activities that could be modified as needed in time. these furnishings plug into the modified exposed services and are made of maple veneer plywood and floating floor used for all surfaces, making them cheap and easy to install or modify.
