The Story of our new office – An Architect’s Perspective
Our new offices in Nagpur were designed by noted architect Mukul Kulkarni. Here’s the story on the inspirations for the design
For their SP InfoCity, MIHAN facility, InfoCepts’ leaders envisioned a space that provides enrichment for future growth. Hence, to design this facility, we identified the following cultural attributes as drivers of their growth –
A Friendly Neighborhood: InfoCepts’ Culture in a Nutshell
The above attributes blend well with a friendly neighborhood design theme. We, therefore, adopted this design theme and developed a space that InfoCeptians can identify as –
The open office layout breaks down barriers of doors and walls to promote open interaction and unhindered flow of innovative ideas.
Our interactions with InfoCepts’ leaders revealed that their BI solutions are an outcome of active and collaborative interactions. Breakout areas, therefore, feature prominently in SP InfoCity to give InfoCeptians room to gather and collaborate.
With 50,000 square feet for 400 InfoCeptians, there is no shortage of room for collaboration. It effectively means that every InfoCeptian gets an ample space of 125 square feet. They can choose from any of 30 resource rooms that can seat anywhere from 2 to 100 associates. Also, a large centrally located atrium serves as space for several teams to work in unison.
This facility has ample avenues for productivity. Several enclosed spaces are available for tasks that demand focused attention.
InfoCepts’ leaders value the impact of fun on their associates’ efforts to produce solutions that elicit delightful responses. We have spared no efforts on that front by prominently placing a graffiti bus, a taxi, a food truck, a rock climbing wall and retro scooters on the office floor. With multiple automatic bean-to-cup coffee machines, food kiosks and hoverboards at the disposal of InfoCeptians, this is a fun and entertaining space.
A meditation center, a wellness center, and a library area are available for those who want to address their holistic needs. Moreover, a large amphitheater is open to facilitate recreational activities.
All resource rooms have the latest communication and presentation gadgets with a high bandwidth network to match them. InfoCeptians can cast their presentations on big LED screens over the Wi-Fi network, thus doing away with HDMI and VGA cables.
