A neglected exhibition hall in Luxembourg, originally built as a warehouse, has been transformed once again by Metaform architects to create a light-filled, collaborative office space.
“The main emphasis of the project was to bring in more natural daylight, creating an efficient, clean and bright office space where people and communication take center stage,” explains Shahram Agaajani, founder of Metaform architects.
The concept aimed to adapt the warehouse whilst preserving a flavor of certain key characteristics of the original building.
As you enter the space you are welcomed by a bright, double-height reception area.
Inside, a central statement staircase made from oak doubles as a common area. This creates a mix of semi-private, informal work and social areas maintaining an open-plan layout.
Metaform architects chose a simple material palette including pure white walls, grey steel beams but also oak floor paneling and detailing in contrast with the original characteristics of the warehouse.
Through the introduction of light, the architects sought to foster a positive and welcoming working environment.
The choice of furniture also inspires a “homey” atmosphere.
The building contains 1.950 square meters of office space, which includes a reception area, a staff kitchen, meeting rooms, open-plan offices, exhibition space, an outdoor terrace area and ample storage space.
