Design studio Carmen Baselga_Taller de proyectos was commissioned with redesigning the European headquarters of pharmaceutical company Qualicaps in Madrid, a company with over one hundred years’ experience in the sector. The offices’ new image is conceived to fit in with the company’s new business criteria and needs. For this purpose, it opted for high-performance ceramic tiles by URBATEK.
Qualicaps’ new management team wanted to create a pleasant work environment able to stimulate and inspire people the moment they entered the building. With this refurbishment project, greater flexibility has been sought by changing the layout in order to facilitate meetings and shared spaces. With this idea in mind, different meeting rooms have been created for various different uses, together with more office space, while still maintaining a spacious feel.
Choosing the right materials is also important in creating a good working environment. Wood and glass have been combined with other building materials to generate the necessary warmth and comfort and to demarcate different areas.
The entrance lobby, which can be seen from outside the building, aims to reinforce the company image by incorporating features in the same colours as the company logo. The perimeter is marked out with an upholstered bench in Qualicaps’ different colours. The flooring in the lobby required special technical properties and so different formats of the On Timber Light Grey Nature through-body porcelain floor tile model was chosen.
