Roy David Studio has designed an office for the growing team of Windward, the global company best known for its data and analytics on the maritime domain. Located on the premium 35th floor in the 360 Adgar Tower in East Tel Aviv, Israel, the Windward HQ office measures 1,200m (12,917ft).
The overall industrial style that the architecture firm focused on is emphasized by the use of rough wood, untreated concrete core walls and bold rusted metalwork as main materials for the new headquarters. “The space is intelligently designed so that it mimics the environment the Windward company undergoes its activity in. We wanted to shift our design strategy so that the space would not reflect a luxurious yacht design but that of the harsh industrial ports.” explains the architect and founder of Roy David Architecture, Roy David.
The design strategy is well rooted in the planning of the space. Having a circular layout, the space presented a lot of challenges that the architecture team had to solve in a small time frame of just two months. As part of the overall design process the company wanted their layout to be open space. This strategy created a series of unique technical approaches designed in collaboration with the execution company, Shin Angel. From specially calculated open acoustic barriers to a supra-structure of 14 new rusted metal columns, each design element was added so that the companies brief was met fully.
