Contained in seven storeys and spread over 12,000 sq metres the interiors for Poland’s biggest Internet-based company, the Allegro Group, were recently created and completed by Ultra Architects.

“It has a very distinctive shape: the northern side is calm and flat, whereas the southern, chessboard-like elevation is made up by many two-storey loggiae.” says Ultra Architects. “The shape of the building itself acted as the inspiration for this project. The inner shared space is a reflection of the outer façade.”

“The space has been divided using cabinets made of lacquered pine plywood. The whole structure utilises both closed rooms, as well as open office space, which was one of the requirements coming from the investor.”

“The northern part is characterised by the cabinets situated in a row, separating the corridor from the workplace. On the southern side, however, every second cabinet is withdrawn to the back, which has created inner patios that act as places of rest and informal meetings.”

“An additional space of this kind can be brought about by utilising the movable walls of the dining room and the kitchen.”

“While searching for the materials that would go along with the interior we decided to invest in their bluntness. The concrete that surrounds the building is unplastered, as are all of the brick walls. All the materials used in the construction have been subject to as little processing as possible, which allowed us to keep the energy consumption rates at minimum (ecology).”
