Interior design for a unique headquarters office concept in the heart of Khobar, Saudi Arabia.
The new office building will be located in the business quarter of Khobar city, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and will be the headquarters office for a startup that is undergoing expansion and requires a new workspace, benefiting from a unique and innovative design to reflect the company’s culture and values, featuring an open-plan with a minimalist design. It will feature collaborative workspace areas, private meeting rooms, and informal breakout spaces. The open-plan layout will encourage collaboration and creativity, while the private meeting rooms will provide a space for confidential discussions.
The building will be a part of a brand new office complex, strategically located in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia, with immediate access to all points of interest, such as the financial district and other important destinations. Its proximity to the King Abdulaziz Seaport, Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University, and Saudi Electrical Company makes it a highly versatile and significant location for companies to establish their office.
Headquarters Office design implementation
Functionally, the workspace design covers both indoor and outdoor space, with 725 square meters of indoor space divided between 3 levels, and 115 square meters of garden space. In total, the design covers 840 square meters. The three floors, starting from the ground floor and going up to the second floor will have the functions of the design split between them. The ground floor has the reception, coworking space, kitchen, as well as meeting rooms. The first floor will contain the lounge, open and private workspaces. The second floor covers the private offices, such as the CEO office, upper management offices, additional work areas, meeting rooms, and a cafe space. The office is designed to be an immersive experience that encourages creativity and productivity.
Headquarter office design is becoming an increasingly important topic for companies, as more and more businesses are recognizing the importance of good office space in attracting and retaining top talent. While the design of an office used to be an afterthought, it is now becoming one of the most important aspects of company culture. A well-designed office can inspire creativity, productivity, and a sense of community in employees.
Headquarters office design approach
The design puts the innovative and transgressive character of the company at the heart of the project, adapting it into a collaborative and creative environment that will help the employees perform at peak performance at all times. The role of the office is to stimulate collaboration and create a safe and productive environment for everyone, with the design proposing large open spaces to foster a sense of community and collaboration. One of the goals of the project was to avoid the generic look of open-plan offices and create a dynamic statement for the company, as well as integrate with their identity. The concept changes through the floors, using a mix of industrial elements and various harmonic touches, while at the same time maintaining a coherent whole. The design is thought out for a 10 year period and has the capacity to change and adapt to the needs of the company in time. A raw color palette with bold touches of blue, which is directly linked to the branding of the company, symbolizes its commitment to technology and innovation. Minimalist graphics overlay the space, ensuring easy navigation through the areas.
When designing a headquarter office, it is important to keep the company’s culture in mind, and integrating the corporate identity directly into the workspace is essential for building cohesion in teams, as well as creating a sense of belonging for employees. A strong sense of identity helps to develop a feeling of pride in the office and its occupants, as well as leads to better employee retainment in time. Creating an office that is visually stunning not only for clients and guests, but for the employees who will spend their day working in it, is important for boosting morale, creativity, and productivity.
The open staircase brings in natural light and opens up the design, making it lighter and creating a connection to the exterior. Exposed concrete, with white walls and ceiling, are the dominant materials, being mixed with blue touches, such as fabrics, and solid wooden tones. The CEO’s office was given special attention, placing all necessary amenities within reach and the addition of a balcony and a private rest area. The office is designed using an elegant dark theme to stand out from the rest of the building and to create a luxurious feel. The color blue is strategically used, tying together the design and contributing to the community-building aspect of the workspace design. It was very important for the interior design process to use the corporate identity of the client in a practical and aesthetic manner. Versatility is very important in the case of workspace design, as offices need to be adaptable to ever-changing needs over a longer span of time.
The interior design approach for the Headquarters office revolved around 2 main objectives. Firstl, to create a design that embodies the company and its values, which is essential to the long-term success of the business and its ability to retain valuable talent. Secondly, we focused on creating a space that leads to focus and high productivity, where the company’s goals are achieved. These 2 combined to create the interior design approach that shaped the space, leading to the creation of a luxurious and contemporary office design.
