High Tech Company: Designing a Modern, Collaborative Office Space

One of the most complex challenges in this office design project by Mexican architect Juan Carlos Baumgartner in Mexico City was to create a highly functional, collaborative, and technology-driven workspace that prioritizes human connection and wellbeing. Designed in 2021, the innovative high tech company office features flexible, modular workstations, versatile meeting areas, and playful spaces that encourage employees to gather, interact, and thrive in a dynamic, nature-inspired environment.
