Bayer’s new office features the balance of corporate and lifestyle.
The look of today’s office spaces have significantly evolved over the years. It is no longer non-excitable crummy rooms that house bulky work stations of the yesteryears. Most offices utilise creative space planning and take advantage of spaces to enable somewhat a 3D showcase of their brand aspirations and corporate standing.
Bayer, industry leaders in health care, nutrition and high tech materials were seeking a corporate work space that epitomizes moving with times, vibrancy and at the same time, conveys the company’s corporate aspirations.
Given free rein by the Client to exercise maximum creativity, DB&B Malaysia’s design team conceptualized the unique ‘balanced environment’ – which features the balance of contrasting colours, lines and shapes.
The 25,500 square feet corporate space that spans over two floors is set in the hustle and bustle of downtown Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Inspired by the ‘energy’, Bayer’s brand new office offers nothing but sheer excitement.
Pockets of spaces are treated with individual touches of colours and graphical elements.
The reception area mirrors a balancing act. Earthly tones are contrasted with vibrantly-coloured circular graphic elements. A view from top to bottom reveals an environment that is clean and crisp which is far from the clichéd clinical feel.
The general work area also features a well-balanced environment – selected walls clad with lifestyle images and corporate messages, and work stations in neutral hues.
The creative freedom, relished by the project’s designers, resulted in an exciting and vibrant environment that leaves lasting impressions for anyone who visits the office.
