MoreySmith는 새로운 서비스 오피스 브랜드인 Deskopolitan에 대한 최초의 글로벌 공동 작업 개념을 완성했는데 이는 유럽의 선도적인 건축 설계 관행 중 하나인 "파리 48 Rue du Château d' Eau"에서 시작되었다.
새로운 공간은 4층 규모이며, 창의적이고 유연한 작업공간을 필요로하는 신생 기업 및 중소기업들에게 어필할 것으로 판단된다. 회사의 글로벌 디자인 컨셉을 기반으로 기존 공장 건물을 변형하여 혁신적인 대화형 공간으로 새로운 사무실 개념을 창조한 이 곳은 최첨단 공동작업 환경이 될 것이다.
MoreySmith, one of Europe’s leading architectural design practices, has completed the first ever global co-working concept for new serviced office brand, Deskopolitan, which has launched at 48 Rue du Château d’Eau, Paris.
The new space comprises 14,530 sqft spread over four floors and has been let in its entirety for three months to French presidential candidate Benoît Hamon, who ran his election campaign from the building. In addition to Mr Hamon, the building is expected to appeal to start-ups and small businesses seeking creative and flexible workspace in central Paris – a revolutionary concept for the French market.
Following Deskopolitan’s brief, MoreySmith conceived and developed the company’s Global Design Concept and transformed the former factory building into a state-of-the-art co-working environment, which challenges the traditional office concept with innovative and interactive spaces. Co-workers are offered full use of adaptable spaces including a café, a barbershop, phone booths and informal touchdown positions at ground floor and mezzanine level, all of which promote connectivity and social interaction.
The brief from Deskopolitan included the creation of a space that would be unique, welcoming, comfortable, interesting, flexible, easy to use and sociable. The Global Concept was developed originally for Voltaire a 19,685 sq ft (or 6,000 sq m) site in the 11th arrondissement of Paris, that has grown to be a much larger project offering a complete live work model with a gym club, restaurant, nursery and hotel, which is due to open in March 2018.
MoreySmith worked closely with Deskopolitan to establish the branding for the building, a graphic inspired by the circular geometry found within the iconic Voltaire entrance gates. This was translated throughout the project and included in design elements such as metal work, wall panels, door handles and balustrading, which resulted in a contemporary industrial style with open, bright and connected interiors.
