The project arises from the need to renovate the old medical office-library of the town, a single floor, long and narrow building, 33.50 m x 8 m, which focuses its main facade south. Half of the building is not in use with the transfer of the library to the new House of Culture; this coupled with the demand of a growing population, enables the entire building to be used for medical purposes, increasing the number of consultations, including extraction and pediatrics.
The installation for the new men’s accessories collection has been designed to conserve the quality spaces in the new showroom, with large windows creating a constant overlapping between the indoor areas and the city outside. The facades of the historical buildings around the showroom act as a backdrop for the display elements, creating a theatrical and striking effect.
The result exceeded customer expectations, delivering the first office project in the country that eliminates assigned workstations or private offices. This functional and operational “shake-up” required the creation of complementary spaces that supported an open office such as a “quiet room”, informal open rooms, a “town hall”, and “high tables”.
As we enter the floors there are small lobbies as a prologue to what takes place inside. Informal meeting spaces and phone booths to receive suppliers without having to go through the whole office. Next, an open space with infinite possibilities. Each brand has its own personality, colors on columns, ceilings and furnishings.
According to the new brand identity Veintediez Arquitectos designed a new version module in Concepcion, a city located south of Chile. The module is located in middle of the Mall corridors, next to a vegetation area, so the idea of this new shop, was to see-through it, making possible for customers to see clearly all products and processes from outside.
The space is characterized by the high degree of transparency which was manipulated in order to diffuse the light and filter the optic penetration. The role of light was highly regarded and thoroughly studied since the beginning in order to create a unique solution for the particular location and user. Light and shadow change throughout the day giving the space a unique atmosphere every moment. Serenity is followed by tension and drama.
