Pearson Building in Rubí
An office complex integrated into its surroundings, with a recessed façade that plays with the volumes and is a transition between the past of the listed neighboring house and the future of the morphology of the square.
The starting criteria and objectives are to create an environment that provides tools for daily work, spaces for teamwork, communication, participation, learning, innovating, creating, commitment, motivation, comfort, and the style of healthy life.
In 2014, the Agrolimen group set up three of its companies in an existing building in Plaça Europa in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat. With the idea of creating a single corporate headquarters for Agrolimen, Affinity and GBFoods, a unique project is proposed in which the three companies share spaces, common services, restaurant, gym and terraces.
It starts from an office building with undervalued outdoor spaces where the opportunity to turn a sick building into a Green Building is detected. The outdoor spaces are enabled so that they can be lived in and, by incorporating biodiversity, the building is converted into a healthy office.
With the idea of creating a single corporate headquarters for Agrolimen, Affinity, and GBFoods, a project was made for the New Headquarters, in which the three companies share spaces, common services, restaurants, gyms, and terraces.
To achieve these objectives, three differentiated areas were created:
– Production areas: WORK
– Equipped meeting rooms: MEET
– Rest and communication areas: SHARE
The offices are equipped with differentiated furniture for multiple ways of working, adapting to their corporate values creating open spaces or meadows, ‘free seating’, personal lockers, laptop, IP telephony, spaces for relationships and communication, creativity areas …
An own and differentiated image is proposed for each of the companies with common and unifying features throughout the headquarters:
– GBFoods culture is transmitted in the look and feel of nests and kitchens.
– The look & feel of Affinity: spaces where pets and the user interact: beach, mountain, and home.
– Agrolimen adopts a sober image with high-quality materials.
