lagranja design creates a leafy, light-filled office in barcelona

 

in barcelona, design studio lagranja has created an airy, plant-filled office space for digital start-up ‘typeform’. based on ideals of fresh air and free mobility, the 2000 square meter venue is abundant in foliage, and aims to create an atmosphere of creative freedom and spatial flexibility.

the office is abundant with multi-functional spaces for work or relaxation, and is laden with dense foliage

 

 

in its design, lagranja has replaced the traditional reception area with a welcoming beer and coffee bar, where employees can prepare for the day ahead, relax with a drink once their work is done, or await their next client. above the bar, plants are hung from a small landing, beginning a decorative trend that continues throughout the space. in choosing the plants, the studio looked to the work of environmental activist kamal meattle, who recommends a combination of areca palm, mother-in-law’s tongue and money plant to encourage superior air-flow and quality — the office even has an in-house gardener. starting as they mean to continue, lagranja’s updated reception represents the core concepts amplified throughout the interior.

large orbital lamps are a recurring motif throughout the space

 

 

bicycle parking is available outside with direct access to the main meeting room, whose center table is a super-sized typeform logo. smaller meeting rooms are each defined by a single color, for ease of scheduling. all of these surround a central vegetation boulevard — a multifunctional area for relaxation or casual work that is outfitted with the lagranja furniture collection.

two communal working spaces run parallel on either side of the central boulevard: the left-hand side is distinct in its hanging orbital lamps. the right-hand hall — the largest hall in the building — is covered by a huge winged-awning lamp — the biggest the studio has ever created. in a nod to ancient greece, the office space also houses an ‘agora’, a congregation area outfitted with three semicircular grandstand levels for presentation and performance. all in all, the design deftly walks the line between work and play, creating an environment that encourages thoughtful creativity within a casual, accessible space.
