M+N Architecture has designed the new offices of FLASH Entertainment located in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
With the newly completed project for the new offices of FLASH Entertainment at twofour54, M+N Architecture reconfirmed its ability to work with prominent clients to develop unconventional and customized designs for the working environment. The challenge this time focused on creating a strong brand identity with a highly flexible space.
Such request of flexibility translated into an open space of 480 sqm (about half of the total project’s area) where two “snake-like tables” (respectively 58 and 22 metres in length) move between the existing columns creating sinuous shapes.
The two custom-made tables allow employees to sit around the same working surface and freely interact and group into teams; indeed their structures and the cable management system were conceived and designed to emphasize such freedom without restricting employees to the typical individual/modular office desk concept. They also create areas for informal meetings, soft seating and printout binding.
The main entrance/reception area is reinvented as a space that is not just a waiting area but an interactive space where the visitors can learn and discover the history of the company, by walking through a suspended maze that showcases Flash’s memorabilia and also serves as a filter between the entrance and the operative area.
