L'OREAL HQ _New Cairo

In collaboration with UGEI & JLL

Sustainability is no longer a trend, but a way of life for many corporate environments. As Green-building initiatives continue to rise and property developments in buildings, We believe it L’OREAL new vision should adopt eco-conscious interior design .L’OREAL’s busy environment with ever-changing technology, a well-designed workplace should change effortlessly according to the task at hand. Developing areas that can be easily adapted to suit changing requirements is an essential element. Productive well-being is an aspect of workplace design that has been embraced by designers more recently. With the health and well-being of employees being central to the design, we see a positive impact on health, happiness, and productivity in the workplace., The design adopts comfort, air ow, lighting, indoor plant life through individual plants and connectivity to increase the productive well-being of L’OREAL’S sta members. Also bringing the outdoors inside is a design trend that will boost the workers who are spending around eight hours a day inside, we can see the bene ts of bring- ing more natural elements into the workplace to enhance productivity.

The ‘Biophilic landmark stations’ elements are introduced in the space creating an element of nature and making the most of the original characteristics of the space, the designers adopt the concept of the “Biophilic Nodes” where their target is to achieve a continuous feeling between the indoors of the company. The creation of such vertical nodes distributed along with the indoor emphasizes the continuous, growing, and dynamic feeling between the spaces. This makes the new workspace feel more connected instead of being segregated. The Biophilic stations act as connective spines between all 3 floors. The ‘Landmark stations’, inspired by the concept of “Biophilia” is an important feature that underneath a lot of L’Oréal concepts starting from natural plants to products, spiral upward and become a central gathering point at each zone.
