A Look Inside FGCOOP’s New Brasilia Office

Credit Union Guarantee Fund recently hired architecture firm SKBorges to design their new office in Brasilia, Brazil.

“The reception area has been designed with both aesthetics and functionality in mind, incorporating a mix of materials like steel, lighting canvas, and wood to create an inviting atmosphere. The utilization of visual elements such as the steel slat and tensioned canvas creates a visually striking effect while also serving a practical purpose.

Exposing the ceiling slab and installations in the staff area and main meeting rooms, while incorporating the company’s Pantone colors, not only adds to the overall design but also reinforces the company’s brand identity throughout the space. The integration of noise-absorption panels that also have lighting for workstations is a clever solution to improve acoustics and create a conducive working environment.

The lounge area and pantry, adorned with wooden elements and a mural by the local artist, Vitória Serednicki, create a relaxed and inviting space for employees to unwind. The incorporation of natural elements like steelwork and vegetation on the ceiling contributes to a more comfortable and pleasant atmosphere, in line with biophilic design principles.

The project’s success is evident in how well it reflects the company’s mission and values, providing an inspiring and functional workspace for everyone who interacts with it. The collaboration and effort put into this project are truly commendable, and our team are proud of the impact we’ve made on the overall environment. It’s clear that our enthusiasm and dedication have resulted in a space that’s both aesthetically pleasing and functional, contributing positively to the experiences of both employees and visitors.”
