THE BEAT HEADQUARTERS

LIANOU CHALVATZIS ARCHITECTS as Architecture & Lighting Design

The BEAT, is a fluid signature interior design project at an iconic regeneration project in the centre of Athens, designed by LC ARCHITECTS.

The 6,500sqm Interior design spans along 4 floors within the Orbit office campus. As an innovative tech company, it literally sets the world in motion.

Thus, the overall design is inspired by the constant movement, the speed and the agile philosophy of the company with fluid, open spaces and various qualities into its fabric.

The challenge was to create a flexible, yet future-proof building, able to respond to the contemporary patterns of workflow and variable team-based office sizes.

It focuses on creating comfortable and attractive spaces for people to work, grow and evolve, while promoting collaboration, communication and well-being.

Spatially, the space is divided into two wings with a central circulation core, where the main reception is located at the executive floor. At the top floor we allocate the company’s restaurant having access into the building’s roof garden overlooking the city, while along the vertical core, vibrant communal spaces, meeting areas and break out spaces are developed.

The use of fresh plants and vertical gardens embedded into the design, contribute into the employee’s wellbeing, while boosting their spirits. Lighting, as well, functions as a significant design element, highlighting the fluidity and the continuity of the space while creating an ambient luminance throughout the day, creating an environment with high levels of visual comfort.
