transforming an old bread factory in helsinki, studio joanna laajisto has created a new home for finnish advertising agency bob the robot. the project began with the client wishing for an office space that broke away from traditions, and challenged this aim with a modest budget.
the over six-meter high industrial space, totalling 1,500 sqm, is divided into public and private areas to ensure interactions on many different levels. at the entrance, public spaces like the lobby and cafe encourage employees and customers to mingle. meeting rooms are situated along the long corridor that leads to the rear. here, as well as on the second floor loft, are spaces specifically for employees only.
