Interiors-Case Study

Office perfect

Aditya Birla has opted for ANJ Group’s design and build expertise for its Mumbai based Corporate Office

Society’s changing lifestyle and the need to keep pace with rising complexities of urban living has impacted every aspect contributing to a healthy standard of living. Offices and commercial spaces are one such area where significant hours are spent by individuals. It is hence of vital importance to maintaining surroundings that is not only ideal for functional purposes but are also aesthetically appealing and comfortable at the same time.

Aditya Birla, a leading corporate name, is one such firm  that maintains a long legacy rooted in tradition, but yet continues to keep pace with the ever changing market dynamics. The company wanted an office space which could reflect its operational philosophy. ANJ, one of India’s leading design and build firms specialising in corporate fit-outs, was given the responsibility of designing, building and delivering the 13,000 sq ft corporate office to Aditya Birla’s flagship textiles brand ‘Grasim’ in Mumbai.

 

LAYOUT SPECIFICS

The layout design primarily consisted of a designated open work station area for the working staff, a client lounge area to entertain guests, a board room, meeting rooms, a pantry and cafeteria for their staff and three levels of cabins for their management depending on the hierarchy. Cabin A & B, which is for the senior most management was designed with very woody and rustic materials like veneer, laminates with wooden textures, etc to give a very elegant look and feel. Cabin C, for the working management was designed with modern wall papers.

The open office areas comprising a combination of cubicles and linear workstations, cafeterias, client lounges, etc have been designed with a modular, trendy and state-of-the-art feel is simple and extremely functional. Glass partitions were used primarily to give the office a very open feel and selective use of graphics and films in combination with subtle yet classy wallpapers give the entire office a very young, vibrant and dynamic finish.

The office located in a prominent high-rise in Worli also has an adjoining terrace with breath-taking views of the Arabian Sea and the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. This terrace has been landscaped beautifully with artificial grass to make it appear like a sky-garden. This garden has been designed to be used as a break-out area or a recreational area, as per the requirements of the organisation’s working staff.

Functionality has been the key behind the design of this office. Most of the partitions used in the office are modular adjustable partitions that can be rearranged at anytime to increase or decrease the space allocated to a cabin or a meeting room depending upon the number of people that it needs to accommodate. The client lounge or collaborative space has been placed on the layout in such a way, that if more cabins need to be added in the office at a later time, the lounge space would make way for the addition of new cabins.

The project is one of the success stories handled by ANJ Group, which has an experience spanning over 35 years. With an in-house design studio comprising leading architects to the best of project managers closely monitoring on-site execution, ANJ has delivered projects across 50 million square feet.
