Between physical and digital – workspace of the future
The new offices of the Bip Consulting Group, Business Integration Partners S.p.A., a multinational consulting firm that works for companies and public administrations, have been inaugurated inside the Liberty Tower in Milan. The almost 3,000 square meters have been designed as if they were inhabited by constellations of people who define, during the day, the organizational forms most appropriate to the development of projects in progress, without distinction between onsite presence and smart working, a mode facilitated by the use of digital platforms and devices that allow great flexibility in presence and remotely. An arrangement designed to cope with the new working methods that have developed and become established in the working world. There are no operational workstations but the areas are configured “just in time” with respect to the needs of the teams that book the spaces through a dedicated App. The spaces are equipped with an electrical and technological infrastructure that makes it immediate to connect from any location on the floors.
A space designed for constant sharing and exchange of ideas. These offices have been designed to be totally inclusive, eliminating many of the internal partitions replaced by large windows. An unusual and extraordinary view of the city that can also be appreciated from the seventh floor of the offices entirely dedicated to lounge area, bar-restaurant and media gallery.Corporate colors define the large work spaces. A red thread runs along the windows and furnishings. Blue covers the central core, a strong identity element present on all floors, regulator of spatial dynamics and perspective focus of all work areas. The theme of well-being is central to the new offices that have hosted the experimentation of UP150, a new format that combines work and physical activity.
Health in the office will become an asset within everyone’s reach. The Design Team was able to finalize this important project, thanks to the expertise gained both in the field of design and implementation, ensuring a continuous workflow even during the long period of health emergency. The offices have also been the place for the scientific experimentation of the innovative UP150 concept. The objective of UP150 is, in fact, to demonstrate that the 150 minutes of moderate activity per week, suggested by the World Health Organization to be considered healthy, are compatible with office life and can be integrated into the working day. A pioneering project that sees the experimentation in unison of different concepts ranging from the design of hybrid workspaces between physical and digital and the well-being of workers through physical activity.
