Interiors – Madrid, Spain
ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño (APD) has designed and carried out the technical development of the interior design of the A-LAB work centre, where APD’s Spanish headquarters and the innovation area of Grupo ACCIONA are located.
APD’s interior design project includes the concept design, the distribution and use of the different areas according to the needs of the work centre itself, the design of part of the furniture, the selection of materials and the lighting project. It is a new concept for a multipurpose and sustainable space committed to mobility and collaborative work. In this sense, A-LAB is defined by its ample, luminous and multipurpose spaces, but also by its efficient use and waste management.
Conceived for collaboration, development, sharing, exhibiting and welcoming, it includes 56 unallocated work stations, shared spaces to facilitate team and project work, two meeting rooms, several informal meeting areas, a terrace for outdoor working in a smoke-free space, a kitchen, rest areas and an Agora space or amphitheatre with capacity for 30 people for presentations and corporate events.
In terms of the use of resources and waste management, the reduction of paper consumption is a priority at A-LAB, aiming to become a paperless office, without bins or plastic containers. Waste generated by work-related activities are recycled in a specific place in a section of the kitchen. In addition, all rooms include natural light in order to reduce energy consumption.
