A Tour of Tripledot’s New Barcelona Office
Game development company Tripledot hired interior design firm NT Studio to design their new office in Barcelona, Spain.
“At NT studio we approach the project in an integral way, understanding that content and container are a unit. As interior designers, we believe that all the elements — structural, aesthetic and functional — that intervene in the space must always coexist in harmony. For this reason, from the initial phase we study the floor plan; we analyse and define the distribution in accordance with its use and functionality; we select the materials that will provide the most appropriate technical solution and we propose the furniture and lighting pieces, specifying all their finishes, so that the combination of the whole generates that unique atmosphere that we are always looking for. This is our work methodology, our way of understanding interior design, defining even the smallest detail from the initial phase of the project is the path that leads us to achieve an optimum result.
The project has been worked on under two premises. The first: to create an attractive workspace at the service of com- fort in order to attract and retain the talent of programmers and designers. The second: to design a workspace that se- duces a generation that, after the pandemic, is reluctant to return to the office because it has become accustomed to the comfort of teleworking.
The colours of the logo – blue, orange and green – were the source of inspiration when defining the chromatic range for the refurbishment of these offices, helping to delimit spaces, create atmospheres and choose finishes and upholstery to generate cohesion in the overall project. Located on the sixth floor, we designed the layout to create three distinct areas: the entrance – reception area, the ope- rational area and the office – lounge area, maintaining the open space at all times, without visual partitions, connec- ting the different areas by means of fluid routes throughout the floor plan.
For the same purpose, we clad the wall that runs the length of the office with acoustic panels made of wooden slats. A solution that, in addition to its acoustic function, allowed us to conceal the ba- throoms, machine rooms and storage cupboards, giving the space warmth thanks to the aesthetic and functional characteristics of the material. The meeting rooms and management offices are visually integrated into the space as they are built with glass parti- tions that stand out for their flowing curves. To increase their privacy, each of them has acoustic cur- tains in different colours.
The different rooms are named after an emblematic place in the city of Barcelona and are identified by neon logos with the allegorical silhouette and the name of the building. In the corridor that connects the operational area and the office – lounge area, we designed three vaulted spaces to work individually or in small groups that do not require great privacy. The main challenge in these spaces was to find the right tonality between the furniture and the different materials so the combination of all of them was balanced while genera- ting a monochromatic atmosphere of great beauty and visual impact.”
