“Horizontalization” of a commercial space

The office-restructuring of the largest e-commerce company in Latin America.

A two-building massive interior-design project where we wanted to create dynamic offices, flexible to multiple workplaces. The core of the project is a staircase system that is specifically designed to communicate the storeys in what we consider a “democratic way”, promoting creativity and avoiding the classic hierarchical-vertical design.

We named this system “links” and it is a group of oval-shaped tubes distributed among floors as interconnection paths, that replaces the single, classic staircase. Links are more than just conventional ladders, they also work as multi-functional spaces, like coffee points, conference rooms and recreational spots.
