The headquarters of Sanofi in Latin America is a unique space, both for the conception of its program, as for its final aspect. It is an office design that is based on avant-garde criteria and seeks the well-being and involvement of the collaborator.
The offices are divided into two floors. They are equipped as the work and collaboration space for a total of 350 people, however, it only has about 180 traditional jobs. That is due that there are no fixed work stations. All the members at Sanofi, have a great variety of areas to get together, work, rest and share. Each of these areas adapted to the type of work, meeting or activity that is needed, making it a highly flexible office.
Regarding the design of their appearance and materiality, we rely mainly on Biophilia. We try to evoke the nature of the space to improve the user’s sensory well-being by reconnecting it with its primitive environment. The coral colors of the fabrics, the blue ocean tones, the greens of the lush vegetation and carpet, the wood in the furniture and the enormous amount of stations flooded by sunlight, transfer you to a distinctive tropical ecosystem of Panama and much of Latin America.
Together it has tried to recreate spaces that can occur normally in nature, for example, caves, refuge spaces to relax, or plains, large open spaces to give a sense of freedom. In this way, there are different environments that encourage thinking, being creative, collaborating, resting or reflecting.
