Project: Lookup HQ, Bengaluru
Architects: Bhumiputra Architecture, Bengaluru
The design for the company’s new offices is based on one core principle: the requirement of flexible, open workspaces for a young, dynamic team. The vision was to design a space that was minimal yet confident and most importantly, efficient.
Workstations range from standing desks (which encourage a more active workplace), to tables one can write on and cosy wall seats. Indigenous plant species differentiate spaces, while also improve air quality and incorporate the company’s trademark green colour.
A cluster of bright red, old-school telephone booths are used as ideal spots for Skype calls. At the very centre, a semi-circular amphitheatre (named ‘The Pitch’) transforms from a brainstorming arena in the day, to a recreational hub by night.
The construction process was self-sufficient, with materials being sourced from local vendors registered with the company.
