Text description provided by the architects. International hotel booking site, Booking.com's Singapore office promises to be an inspiration to its employees and clients alike. Given its line of business, the company deals with various destinations and cultures‚ of which not single one could adequately represent the entire operation as a whole.
Thus, the design concept for their Singapore office embraces this diversity by theming areas of the office according to different local places and assigning them fun tag lines. The idea was to create a vibrant workspace that could be both interactive as well as socially engaging.
There are different spaces for different activities, such as learning, working, eating or playing. Despite the demarcation of space, connectivity and interaction were key requirements for the client. In order to meet these specifications, collaboration hubs were placed in highly visible and central areas within the office.
Additionally, the office was designed to maximise natural light entering the workplace, while the layout was left flexible enough to allow for the company's future expansion plans.
With its quirkiness as well as its functional design, this is a memorable office where both employees and visitors can feel at ease.
