Starting from the premise of “the third space”, which describes the concept of a neutral place between the office and home. Areatres was created from the use of materials of simple manufacture and handcrafted creation which offer a conceptual void with identity. This emptiness is formed through elements of the collective imaginary that refer to the home, organized under the spatial idea of a café. The conjugation of these aspects together with communication technology was the final objective through which this space promises to define a new proposal for use, for any passer-by or temporary user in the short or long term.

The space was conceived with industrial aesthetic qualities. The use of neutral materials and colours was the premise. Ceilings of machimbre, pieces of industrial veneer, structure of beams and columns, rustic brick, birch wood, all these materials under a range of whites. OSB slabs (of ecological origin), rustic bricks painted white, form a monochromatic harmony that collaborates with the sober and contemporary idea of a work environment typical of the 21st century.

Arealiving represents the home transpoled to a workspace facing a bright garden. Enriched with floral arrangements, art and its unique libraries, whose identity is born from the activity that each user professes. A place that shelters the spirit of a coffee with home qualities.

areameeting has a configuration of small meeting rooms versioned as possible workspaces. At the same time they propose a volume spatial design that conform different depths to prevent a monotonous wall.

The furnishing is part of a set that represents a contemporary aesthetic idea of wellness and, in this case, well working. The choice of this furnishing refers almost exclusively to the intention of breaking up the concept of traditional working space. Thus, the choice of Eames and Saarinen furnishing. On the other hand, we can also see the presence of Philippe Starck with his bubble, mademoiselle, Luis ghost, price aha.

The lighting provided by Kartell under the design of Ferrucci Laviani, generate a particular charm and glamour in public spaces.  Haworth’s workstations give the space the quality, design and comfort necessary for a user to feel identified in a way of understanding work and image as a whole. All the furnishings and decoration were provided by Manifesto who is involved and accompanied in the development of the project.
