The Wayra offices, located in Madrid, Spain, and designed by Quanto Arquitectura, are our latest obsession. And it’s a justified one.
For Quanto Arquitectura Studio, led by star architect Miguel Ángel García Alonso, “the fundamental challenge of the Wayra project was to actually create a common workspace, consistent with the nature and philosophy of these start-ups: a space to function as an interconnected ecosystem, versatile and open, yet with its own recognizable graphical personality, regardless of its international location”. And so, the design concept of the Wayra spaces was organized entirely around the idea of enhancing creativity and interconnectedness of work groups – which is expressed in a modular prototype, consisting of exactly three architectural elements: the container, the facility and the image.
Do note though, that up to this day, 9456 m2 of Wayra spaces have been built in 13 cities in Latin America and Europe: Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Bogotá, Caracas, Dublin, Lima, London, Madrid, Mexico City, Munich, Prague, Santiago and Sao Paulo. Thumbs up.
