British American Tobacco Company (BAT) as part of their social responsibility initiatives, actively promotes the livelihood of farmers in North Bengal. Our idea for the BAT office seamlessly blends the cultivation culture of our rural landscape with BAT's forward-thinking ethos: Bold, Fast, Empowered, Divers and responsible. We've embodied this fusion in a concept that symbolizes the labyrinth of rural landscapes and transitions to a contemporary workspace layout. Our design philosophy centers on this labyrinth, a potent symbol of wholeness, journey, and reflection. By breaking the conventional office structures, we've created a fluid, uncluttered layout that encourages creativity and unity. Here, work is not just a task but a delightful journey, where users instantly feel a sense of belonging, comfort, and purpose. Every aspect of our workspace has been carefully planned, leaving no hidden or neglected areas. The circulation serves as a way for reflection, connecting users to their inner center while promoting mindfulness and mental well-being. Thoughtfully selected lighting, mood-enhancing color schemes, and cocoon-like mingling space by traditional fishing gear “Polo” combine to establish a serene and appealing ambiance. At eye level, we've cultivated a free-flowing atmosphere, with workstations arranged in clusters beneath cloud-like ceilings adorned with lights that reflect nature. Meanwhile, green-colored walkways evoke a natural alley, connecting spaces within the office. Outside, a tree-like porch structure symbolizes the harmony between nature and humanity, reinforcing our commitment to sustainability. Further, the achievement of LEED certification highlights our dedication to creating an innovative workspace that respects tradition, nurtures teamwork and embraces sustainability.
