case study - Brush Works, Color Frame, VieW COLLECTIONs

A professional and informal co-working space at Chennai.

One of the most profound changes in the office space ecosystem over the last decade is the emergence of co-working spaces. One reason for this evolution is the rapid rise of small businesses, thanks to the easy availability of cheap Internet and affordable Information Technology software. This in turn has created a demand for well-furnished and independent office cubicles that entrepreneurs require to function, without having to pay huge rents.

Design insight: ADDRESSING THE Challenges of co-working space design


A co-working space has its own set of unique requirements. It has to provide sufficient privacy while facilitating a seamless networking environment. 

The design team, headed by Arvind Rangan from Arvind Varuna Associates understood this fine delineation in the project.  

The floor was of course the singlemost important aspect of continuity and comfort. The team narrowed down on Shaw Contract’s Brush WorksColor Frame, and View collections that met the exact requirements of the visualized project.
