An Office Project by Design Plus Devoted to Ideation & Conversation Space

The brief was in-sync with their company values of pride, responsibility, professionalism, entrepreneurship, long-term, sustainability.

The brief was in-sync with their company values of pride, responsibility, professionalism, entrepreneurship, long-term, sustainability. These values were not necessarily imbibed as metaphors but were also prevalent in an objective requirement - of several small meeting rooms, semiformal discussion zones, well-lit interiors, a possible gathering of 70+ people for a town hall, proverbial open office; essentially a lively and happy working environment.

Owing to the profile of the 2200 SqFt Space, the office was divided into 2 zones –Ideation Space (Meeting Hall) and Conversation Room. While the Ideation Space would encompass formal discussions and presentations by the marketing and business development team; the conversation room would cater to more semi-formal / informal deliberations.


The Pods are self-sufficient to run individual discussions and presentations. These were sunk within the congregational amphitheatre. The Ideation Space has the capacity to bring together 80+ proud employees to attend management pitches, HR revisions or simply celebrate achievements. An 8’ wide slider links, physically and visually, links the Ideation Space to the Conversation Room.


The Conversation Room incorporates various configurations of seating – from coffee sets, to hot desks and even a 12’ long bar table. This encourages the user to seek individual comfort based on the hierarchy of conversation. The conversation room includes a library and a pantry counter to compliment longer duration.
