It can be seen in the designs of mimaristudio that the firm develops brand new approaches for each new project according to the physical conditions and current functional requirements of the place, regardless the studios previous projects or if they are working for the same client or not.

During the planning phase, first of all the sales teams are grouped in the center of the office floor. Teams who work on different areas are placed to be in close contact with their regional sales directors. Also the directors are placed in the center of workgroup clusters based on this idea.

Considering the largeness of the space both in area and the volume, team shells to combine two work groups are designed so that each work group can have their own identity. These shells which respond to physical, technical and technological requirements of all the staff of the group, both during their personal or team work, are designed with a space inside a space approach creating open sub-spaces inside the main work area. With this approach showroom- like effect is avoided and a different identify for each team is provided.

Other units in the office are placed around this core. In addition to this, an open multipurpose hall is proposed for the new place. This hall, which is considered for varying types of usages, is linked to social spaces. The ‘game shells’ which were specifically designed by mimaristudio are placed on the area that is next to this space.

The green lines function as natural separators that organize the units inside the office area. Plants that can sustain in closed environment and are able to use the natural light that space can provide are selected in the landscape design phase.

The space between the shells that cover working clusters are composed like streets, the material selection for these spaces are arranged to create a sense of continuity between other meeting and social spaces. 5 mm modular PVC tiles are chosen for the all floor finishing, expect meeting and interview rooms, for its sanitary and acoustic advantages. Their color and texture vary to go along with the interior design concept of each space.

Lighting design criteria are set by mimaristudio team as it was in the previous mimaristudio projects. LED products are used for all of the spaces in the project, linear or spot projections products are chosen for the working spaces, while in open spaces more specialized products with varying sizes and forms some of them having acoustic qualities are preferred.

With the completion of the project a space that is coherent with both PMSA’s corporate identity and the work that takes place there has come to being. Besides that, a comfortable working space for the staff that operates well and meets the actual and future expectations of the client is created.
