It is going to have an edge. Dynamic geometry of the interior, sharp angles of illuminated ceiling panels, unusual bending of space. We can finally show the evolution of the concept that won the competition for young architects regarding the new Tétris office in the Warsaw Spire building.
The competition, organized at the end of last year, was won by a small but thriving design studio – Noname Architects. “They are passionate young people who come to work not only with imagination, but also with solid knowledge,” said Paweł Brodzik, Managing Director of Tétris. “That is why we entrusted the 3-person team of Noname Architects with co-designing our office,” he added.
It is no accident that the design of the new office brings associations with geometry. “We were looking for a form that would emphasize our identity. We are builders, architects and consultants. We are equally interested in the nuances of the construction work and the image that we offer to our clients through our projects,” said Danuta Barańska, Creative Director of Tétris.
The main part of the new office will be the reception area and the so-called ‘townhall.’ Elegant harshness, sharp angles and lightweight design are the first thing we see upon entering the space. Townhall, or an open meeting place, will be built on a platform. The space will be warmed by wooden finishes including openwork screens and the cladding of columns and walls. The whole concept is complemented by cosy armchairs and tables on light metal frames.
The most original element of this interior design will be the unique dynamic ceiling. It will feature planes of variable geometry whose lightness will be brought out through backlighting.
“Working with Tétris is great. We deliver the design and the executive design, while Tétris acts as a ‘big brother’ who verifies and corrects our assumptions and translates everything into the construction language,” said Grzegorz Zając, architect and team leader at Noname Architects. The work is carried out in the Design & Build model, so all ideas and guidelines are constantly confronted with material evaluations and executive expertise.
“Cooperating with a construction company from the very beginning is very convenient. We have the complete information, there is no guessing; everything is verified and measured onsite. There is no stress. Of major importance are also our personal relations and good communication, which accelerate the delivery of the whole project,” Zając added.
The new Tétris office will occupy 550 sqm of space on the 25th floor of Warsaw Spire. The opening of the space is planned for autumn.
