GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare MD's cabinless office
GSK Consumer Healthcare relocates to a new work space at One Horizon Center, the tallest corporate building on Gurgaon’s new corporate, residential and entertainment hub Golf Course Road. The design has been inspired by the GSK ‘heart’ which forms the core of the GSK logo and encapsulates the company’s dedication to improve the quality of lives by do more, feel better and live longer.  The smart office with its formal and informal spaces has been tech’ed up to ensure that work continues uninterrupted from any corner. The design comprises flexible seating and cabin less format that would encourage greater collaboration and strengthen engagement. Employees are empowered to select their own seats within their functional neighbourhood and outside of that. In a complete shift from the past, the functional heads now share space with their respective teams to drive greater teamwork. This is the second smart office from the ground-up within GSK after the North American Headquarters at Navy Yard, Philadelphia.Occupying the top floors of a newly designed building, the new office overlooks the green expanse of the Golf course on one side, the busy streets and the upscale residential skyline on the other. Aided by technology and cutting edge design, this smart office encourages collaboration, flexible and energetic work culture leading to increased productivity and performance.
The design of the space is inspired by the human body: the heart, the vein, the brain and the skin. At the core of the office is the heart which drives the energy from the lift lobby and the open greeting area of the reception. The vein outlines this section, creating the central circulation through the access controlled spaces for movement and connectivity that inspires conversations. The third layer is the brain – the space where ideas take birth in smart working meeting rooms, quiet rooms and small relaxed huddle areas. The final area is the skin – the space where work breathes and gives rise to collaboration and co-creation.
