As an incubator for start-up companies, BoxOne is a literal "laboratory of ideas.” Its plan is organized around a large volume housing the main incubator. On either side, two zones with warmer tones welcome different uses. The lounge supports informal work and meetings, and the acoustically separated glass space is reserved for BoxOne staff. The entire office offers maximum flexibility, through reconfigurable furniture and movable partitions. The generous contribution of light, woodwork and plants infuse warmth and life into the predominant industrial aesthetic.
