REXAM RIO
Brazil Office

In partnership with Aukett-Fitzroy-Gyarfas in Brazil, AUKETT+HEESE were asked to propose an office design for an international beverage packaging firm in their move from approx. 1.000m² to a new 2.050m² location. Within a short time frame for design, the client’s existing space and requirements needed to be analyzed to optimize the new space for additional staff while providing for future growth.

At entry level the proposal creates a distinctive conference area focused around an oval meeting room with green planted walls. Placed around the oval room are multiple formal and informal meeting areas. In the open plan work area free-form glass enclosed offices allow a sense of openness and produce semi-private meeting zones at the building corners. On the level above is a specialized enclosed team work room as well as a generous and flexible multi-purpose “Family Room.” This space contains informal and touch down working options with plantings and lounge furniture for a more relaxed and creative working environment. The “Family Room” also incorporates the client’s specific request for a video projection area to watch the World Cup of Football.
