Cairn Corporate Office
What’s beneath the surface?
One of the largest private oil and gas exploration and production companies operating in India,Cairn Energy PLC, part of Vedanta Group, was moving to a new office space to accommodate their growing workforce. With a huge leap in employees as well as projects, Cairn wanted a brand new space to reflect their values & culture and most importantly, to make it a lively environment to work in.
They approached us to design and help implement a corporate office that would represent their collaborative work culture with a friendly, yet global professional feel. We in-turn did a full study of the work requirements, staff needs, numbers, work groups and functions. An experience document was created leading to a brief creation for 200,000 sq. ft. of space covering interior architects & other agencies.
What better theme to pick for their office than the Earth itself? For the workspace, named “Terra”, we drew inspiration from the various layers below the Earth’s surface and used them to customize each floor & the spaces within.
The visual language of the office included a detailed theme, colour & inspiration for each floor, drawn from each of the Earth’s layers, translating into the various rooms.
The workspaces and meeting rooms were designed with plenty of natural light, allowing a vibrant and open feel. Formal meeting zones were defined. Hang out spots, like the break rooms and cafeterias had a brighter more casual demeanor to make for easy relaxation. Right from the parking lot to the conference rooms, we put in precise thought behind everything!
Cairn India reported greater employee satisfaction and productivity since their shift to the new integrated space… another happy client!
