Brazilian architecture studio AMBIDESTRO has designed an office interior for Zavagna Gralha Advogados, a Porto Alegre based law firm. Located in one of the noblest corners of the city, the office has 520 sqm (5,597 sqft) of a unique experience of working and collaborating.
AMBIDESTRO: “As a premise for the project, we sought to create an integrated and welcoming office with the intention of breaking the traditional concept of law firms. To do this, we balance living areas with workrooms in order to make the environment more receptive and to make it easier for it to provide exchanges between employees and be a pleasant environment to be in.”
The design is based on a combination of light and dark materials. The interior features noble materials, such as American walnut wood veneer, marquino nero marble, and metallic radiator panels covering some of the main environments. The architects also chose to leave all the structure and the office infrastructure apparent, which was enhanced by a linear lamp running through all the circulations of space.
