Studio Malka Architecture Spatial Proposal For Pernod-Ricard’s New Office
Designer: Studio Malka Architecture
Project Name: PERNOD-RICARD OFFICE
Description: PERNOD-RICARD, world leader in the manufacture and distribution of premium wines and spirits, has commissioned Studio Malka Architecture to design its new office. B.I.G., literally Breakthrough Innovative Group, is a task force focused on researching innovative concepts, new products that change traditional codes, and the consumer’s perception of a product category, brand, or even of an industry. Located in Paris’s center, these two connected buildings still bear traces of their industrial past; Studio Malka Architecture had to carry out a heavy rehabilitation and a total remodeling in order to adapt it to BIG Pernod Ricard’s needs, while imagining new uses for this workplace. In order to investigate new ways of working, Studio Malka also has designed limited edition furniture.
The existing site has allowed clear and distinct assignments; a main building will embody the main working area, consists of three levels converging around a central patio. The second building, Big Hospitality is entirely dedicated to reception meet ups, bars and informal meeting spaces. With BIG Pernod-Ricard, Studio Malka Architecture keeps on exploring MuFu – literally Mutant Furniture – stretching design’s scales and merging different uses into one piece of limited edition or unique furniture piece.
