Architecture Plus has developed a very successful, repeat working relationship with HP. For more than 10 years, APlus has designed numerous lab projects for them. On this project, HP challenged Architecture Plus to come up with a vibrant design and layout for an “E- Club” which included a coffee area, lockers, and focus rooms; individual rooms for private work and conversations.
Upon entering the ELL, one is welcomed by semi-transparent panels, hung at different angles to slowly reveal the space. These panels become an abstract space divider between the rest of the building, and between the coffee bar and E Club. Once in the open office plan, the dynamic E Club is emphasized by a lowered ceiling with the same vivid HP colors on the tiles The tone of the space is vibrant, fun, inviting, uncomplicated, and professional.
