We spend about one-third of our lives in the office. Having said that, the space we occupy in the majority of a day naturally shapes who we are and how we react. Therefore, it is necessary that we consider mental and physical well being while designing workspaces. Not only does an office need to have the ability to appeal to its inhabitants but also needs to create the right atmosphere!

Embodying a capacious design, each of these workspaces captures these sensibilities immaculately. Let’s have a look with ELLE DECOR India’s edit of trendy offices.

Tropic Extenta fusion of art and nature by Kritnam Atelier

A fusion of art and nature, this tropical paradise is located in the heart of Surat. Conceptualised by Maher Desai, Principal Designer and Founder of Kritnam Atelier, this 4380 sq ft office space was completed in a record time of 45 days.

An amalgamation of art and science is what makes this office space different! A man-made mini jungle, this office space has very carefully conceptualised visuals to go with the spaciousness of the area. The space is made to stay connected to the roots with a raw and organic theme, and to achieve the look, exposed concrete, stucco paint, reusable PVC modular panel and fabric leather are used. A fluid art inspired ‘diamond dispersion’ is the designer’s way of integrating science into the space.

A 2000 sq ft space authored by Anarr Gunjaria, this co-working office space has been conceptualised for Yash Shah, Founder of Gujarat’s finest service provider in the largest hub of cotton textiles.

Called ‘The Address’, this space is a play on varying zones which inspires people to come back to work post the pandemic. A beautiful yet functional space, this elevated workspace has a 1500 sq ft terrace which is the highlight! Filled with open workspaces and glass cubes on both sides, the office has a sense of transparency and openness while the reception gives a sense of warmth. Anarr hopes that this newly crafted space will foster new interactions and working relationships.

High-on-Sober by Design Ethics

Co-founders and principal architects of Design Ethics, Poulomi Dhar and Jatin Gupta craft a 4000 sq ft office space for a chemical dye making company, in the heart of New Delhi. The main goal of this project was to create an environment which would function as an extension of the home office. Keeping this in mind, a set of colour blocked areas were developed to build on the work dynamics, have collective meals, be a part of meaningful discussions and have a resting space.  

Created as a multi layer space with playful designs, forms and elements, this workspace also has a carefully crafted terrace with lush greens, making it perfect for occasional company meals.

Office in the Groves by Dot Dimension

Sharman Mehta and Heet Saliya, lead architects of Dot Dimension, designed a workspace which breaks office stereotypes left, right and centre and connects the user with their surroundings. Completed in 2021, this 3100 sq ft office project called ‘Office in the Groves’ is a developer’s office in the lush city of Surat.

Designed for the Avadh Group, this office space blurs the boundaries between the indoors and outdoors. The office space is a minimal transparent cuboid with a pitched roof amidst a grove of trees, shading the buildings and allowing for views from all sides! To complete the space and complement the overall theme, a set of abstract ‘cityscape’ art pieces have been added. The colour scheme here breaks down the monochromatic palette of materials and helps in improving the work efficiency of the users.

Orange & Grey by Design Dual

Conceptualised in the heart of our very own capital, New Delhi, Wamika Bansal and Arjun Sara from Design Dual designed an 1150 sq ft office space for three young lawyers’ space – Orange & Grey. The clients had their own set of requirements which included a reception area, four workstations, a conference to fit nine people, a reading room, a small pantry and a unisex toilet. 

As one enters the office, a bold white marble table against a wooden backdrop instantly catches the eye at the reception. The cabins were all pushed to one of the linear walls leaving a decent amount of space for the rest of the additions. A cloudy grey ceiling was achieved with a shimmering putty texture finish. The workstations have been aligned in an ‘L’ position since they are near the conference room, pantry and toilet. This office space for three lawyers is an amalgam of chic, classic interiors with a bold essence!
