The JSPL Office reconceptualizes the typology of standard formal corporate offices. The interiors utilize natural lighting and indoor greenery to soften stark outlines of the building shell. The open floor layout provides visual transparency – with private, semi-private, and open workspaces interspersed in plan. Textured with whites and greys, the interiors are contrasted with wooden cladding, eco-boards, and lacquered glass. Conceptualized within an earthen colour palette, pieces from Meenal Singh, Rutva Joshi, and MIANZI bring contextuality and regional specificity. The Gond ceiling mural, hand painted by the Pushyam family of indigenous artists integrates all elements. The furniture also foregrounds the art and creates a comfortable work environment

The project attempts to reframe formal corporate office spaces, especially in settings that lack visual and cultural stimuli. The project site is located in a new business district building in Naya Raipur, the planned urban extension of Raipur. Both the complex and precinct are still largely underpopulated providing. Through collaborations with various traditional and contemporary artisans, a playfully vibrant and spatial experience of art is produced within the office interiors to combat the flatness of the unvaried and rather desolate urban condition it responds to.

The cabins and meeting spaces overlook a common area which forms the heart of the office. Textured with muted tones of whites and greys, the interiors have been contrasted with wooden cladding, eco-boards, and lacquered glass, accentuating the spatial character. The skills of the artisans have been crafted into the design imagination of the office space, with the materials and furniture carefully selected to foreground the art and create a stimulating yet comfortable work environment.

The project interiors look inward in their utilization of natural lighting and indoor greenery to soften the stark outlines of the building shell. The open floor layout provides visual transparency – with a mix of private, semi-private, and open workspaces interspersed within the plan, allowing retreats to private spaces when required.

Traditional and indigenous artistic practices from the region have always integrated art into everyday life. They produce a spatial experience of art in its use as decoration, and as surfaces transform into narrative mediums through artistic expression, an attribute that is interpreted in the JSPL Office interiors

The artwork has been conceptualized within an earthen colour palette – with Meenal Singh’s abstract piece providing a dramatic backdrop to the boardroom, whereas Rutva Joshi’s detailed sculptural relief pieces add organicity to the lounge, along with a sense of depth, through their seamless geometric form. The bamboo light fixtures by MIANZI highlight a blend of contemporary and indigenous craft practices, used in conjunction with fixtures manufactured with steel procured from the clients themselves.

Designing Beyond The Boundaries: Jspl Office Interiors Project Explores Collaborative Co- Creation And Enriching Design Process

The JSPL Office Interiors project showcases the possibilities offered by collective co-creation processes within design calls that are precise and subvert standard typologies. It foregrounds the potential for resisting generic outcomes through process-oriented forms of design

As the SpaceMatters studio continues to associate with its long-standing network of artists and craftspersons, including Meenal Singh and the Pushyam family, we see how the process and language of design has matured over time with the growing collaboration.

The process also makes evident how the scope of intended outcomes can expand beyond the expected, and how a collaborative approach towards design and creation enriches the project through the generation of networks and opportunities that thrive beyond the project. A little general - no idea what we are alluding to Mentioned your point on the long standing collaboration bit here

These processes retain value beyond the richness and maturity of the work produced as envisioned, which lies in the networks formed across artistic, design, and cultural spaces; and in the opportunities provided to them, especially after the livelihood struggles faced during the pandemic. In its careful mix of traditional artistic expression and the requirements of a typical functional workspace, the final result is a refreshing reinterpretation of both these considerations.
