Designed strictly for women entrepreneurs architects Jorge Hasbun N. and Catalina Valdés Tocornal, both partners at Grupo Arquitectos ®, have developed the new headquarters offices for Mujeres Empresarias located in a new financial district of Santiago, Chile.
The main design concept for this project has been based in the order established by the development of a central space destined for the meetings held by professional women. This geometric unit was positioned in the center of the main floor plan as a dynamic spiral cage. This space unit undertakes the order of the rest of the activities held in the environment, based on an open and transparent space organization.
Led professional lighting technology combined with natural light has been used in order to generate an adequate and efficient confortable working ambient. Artificial light control has been managed by the use of indirect lighting lines that have been placed in the perimeter of the different volumes.
Materials such as native Chilean wood glass and steel combined to distinguish the corporate sense of the activities of the company. The color red, extracted exactly form the brands logo, has been used in architectural elements to generate the fluidity of space.
