Workspace of the Week - PwC Experience Center Offices, Paris
Located within a Haussmannian mansion in Paris, PwC's new experience centre is a prime space where employees can experience a culture of collaboration and co-creation.
PwC's new experience center is located in a Haussmannian mansion in Paris, a prime space designed by Vincent & Gloria Architectes allowing employees to explore new realms of creativity for the professional services giant.
More than just a simple workspace, the audit firm PwC have chosen to break the corporate style specific to the tertiary world, investing in an innovation laboratory, a place of collaboration and co-creation which is both immersive and creative. Visitors to the space walk through spaces that illustrate the stages of process of reflection and creation of projects.
Unlike many offices, visitors to the space are greeted directly by the teams in the living areas rather than in a lobby and meetings are held in co-creative rooms, such as the User Lab, Flash Room, Jungle Room, Dream Room, Crystal Room, Fab Lab and Sigma Room.
Each room has been specifically designed to suit different requirements. The User Lab has been designed as a place to observe problems. The Flash Room is empty and modular, where the avenues of reflection are explored. In the Jungle Room, wallpaper on the walls creates the perspective and decor, with plant arrangements and wood and green laminate furniture.
War Rooms are small working rooms designed for developing projects. Here, a coloured square on the ceiling is reminiscent of the post-it with which teams work, light furniture and a black and white graphic floor animates the space. Throughout the space, clear tones, streamlined furniture and sobriety is favoured.
