The QA studio has developed this office model, furthermore, in keeping with the very philosophy and nature of the start ups, a work space conceived and designed to suit the needs of young teams of entrepreneurs with a unique opportunity to develop their innovative ideas. The Wayra spaces model, conceptually coordinated in line with values like creativity, connectivity, flexibility and personalisation, has not only been raised as an occasional response to the customer’s expectations, but rather as a reflection on the current corporate architecture and the future of the work spaces.
Creativity, regarded as an essential element in innovation, and connectivity have been the central axes on which the architectural concept has been structured. Elements have been incorporated into the design which facilitate the personal spaces for focused, creative work within a global, collective space modelled with open elements.
Formally speaking, the Wayra spaces are based on a modular prototype made up of three architectonic elements: the Container, the Equipment and the Image.
The Container was designed as an open work space, only limited by “customisable” modules with a slate finish which houses the whole basic infrastructure required for the proper operation of the work cells’ activities. It has been characterised by neutral colours, exposed installations and simple materials
The Equipment includes all the elements which fit into the Container and which go to make up the work cells – which are always taken to the façade line – and it includes the Wayra relationship
The graphic project of the London, Dublin, Prague and Munich academies– created ad hoc for these cities –includes iconographic symbols representing each country, making reference to literary works and authors, recognised events, significant products or sayings in the local language.
