Interactive, modern and functional, Arvind Vivek & Associates designs the TATA Communications office at Pune to visually stimulate innovative thinking.

With the correct blend of formality and casualness, the design of this 1,00,000 sq. ft. space outlines a harmonious work environment, one where spaces multitask and each space has the potential to support work, collaboration, socialising and learning. Ancillary spaces too have their spotlight. This interconnected, collaborative framework for office design is open plan, barrier-free, function-driven and efficient – all aimed at maximising comfort levels.

Two features draw eyes – the Zen Court and the waterbody. While the Zen Court is the epitome of all things calm and serene, the water body overlooks the work bay to add dynamism to the static space. This interior landscaping breaks monotony to create active, transitory spaces that add to a spatial experience very unprecedented to a formal office environment.

The project emphasises on zoning and the modern interior that plays up the visual appeal. Clean lines, sleek décor patterns and a monochromatic colour palette anchor the casual furniture and interior elements. The subtle, light-toned backdrop, the flowing patterns and the coloured accessories and furniture hint at a speck of flamboyance, characterised by materials and textures. The use of Italian stone and ceiling patterns showcases a touch of luxury and the attention to detail.

Transforming the commercial office building typology into a vibrant, informal workspace, the design indulges in casual seating – café, lounge, outdoor, modular and enclave. Natural light floods the interiors through the glass facade, minimising artificial lighting - another design consideration. The smooth transition from daylight to interior lighting emanates warmth and tranquillity.

This homogeneous design challenges the formalities of office culture and presents a fresh take on a sustainable environment - where design moulds productivity and where spaces, not just people, celebrate and embrace the idea of ‘everyone under one roof.’
