Expansion and complete renovation of Arkoslight’s head offices
The project, signed by the designer Francesc Rifé and architect Victor García, is another important step in the growth and projection of the firm.
Arkoslight has just inaugurated its new facilities in Valencia (Spain), after a process of complete renovation and expansion of the Company’s head offices.
With these new headquarters, Arkoslight increased the space dedicated to its offices (from 1.000 to 2.200 m2) and multiplied by six the surface of its showroom, where its complete catalogue of luminaires – awarded at international level for their design-is exhibited.
The purpose was, as a general line, to make the communication easier between the employees. Therefore a long overhead walkway was designed, linking horizontally the showroom and some of the work areas. Following the same idea, one of the other important meeting places is the canteen-office, which completes the experience between the offices, and continues in the same spirit as the rest of the project as far as the materials used are concerned. On the other hand, acoustics plays an important role in open-zone work areas, where a series of Kvadra dark-blue upholstered sound-absorbing plates have been installed in the ceiling, also contributing to the aesthetic quality.
