The design of a workspace plays a crucial role in creating a productive and enjoyable environment for employees. Truly Madly, India's largest dating app, understands this importance and has crafted a refreshing and innovative office interior. Let's take a closer look at the unique features of this exceptional workspace designed by Studio Wood.

Embracing Openness and Unconventional Spaces

With a growing team of 60 employees, Truly Madly wanted to foster a sense of openness and collaboration within their office. The 5000 square foot space was divided into three distinct zones: "UnRavel" at the working area, "UnSingle" at the conference area, and "UnWind" at the basement cafeteria. The concept of "finding love anywhere" served as the inspiration for this layout, creating an outdoorsy ambiance throughout the office.

Bringing Light and Energy Inside

Upon entering the building, visitors are greeted with a street-like view, complete with greenery, vibrant signages, and a strategically parked bicycle. Turning right, one is met with a double-height room adorned with Shakespearean English words on the wall, reminiscent of an art gallery. To infuse the space with natural light, full-height windows were opened on two walls, transforming the area's energy. The linear arrangement of work desks, along with a mezzanine library, now basks in ample light.

Unleashing the Potential of Space

Intriguingly, the office design incorporates a 15 x 7 foot mezzanine and a step-down area dug into the earth. The mezzanine serves as a library and break-out space, featuring a custom-designed metal bookshelf. The step-down space accommodates the accounts and HR teams. This corner of the office showcases the potential for loftiness within the overall design.

A Ceiling-Scape of Rapid Growth

An outstanding feature of the Truly Madly office is its ceiling-scape, inspired by the growth of the dating app. Depicting a growing tree, the royal blue structure supports acrylic pendant lights, spots, and tracks. The work desks below are custom-designed and manufactured in chipboard, metal, and laminated boards, all following the blue color theme.

Interactive and Playful Touches

As one walks through the reception, a playful corner immediately captures attention. Inspired by the game of Scrabble, a wall adorned with letters provides interactive fun for guests before and after meetings. This engaging touch adds a touch of creativity and interactivity to the workspace.

Seamlessness and Collaboration

The conference and break-out space features a floating box constructed with chipboard and glass, serving as the main boardroom with seating for 12-14 persons. A 14-foot-long modular-conference table, finished in metal, chipboard, and epoxy, adds a modern touch to the space. Additionally, a gallery with glass walls and three smaller conference or breakout rooms enhances the sense of seamlessness and collaboration. The flooring pattern, designed with twin-colored carpet tiles, further adds to the cohesive atmosphere.

A Room for Subtle Design Experiences

Within the conference space, a bright and sunny corner houses a semi-casual meeting area for 4 to 6 persons. The main wall of this room features a subtle design experience with 4x3 grid letterboxes painted in white, perfectly blending into the white wall.

Cafeteria as a Rejuvenation Spot

At the end of the conference space, a striking bright yellow staircase leads to a 1500 square foot cafeteria. This space incorporates a snack bar constructed with brick tiles, cobbled floors with green patches, and graphic framework lights. The snack bar serves as a buffet counter during lunch hours and also offers a relaxing spot for employees to unwind or enjoy a few beers on the weekend. Cane haystacks provide a park-like feel, encouraging relaxation and rejuvenation.

A Non-Office, Office Space

The Truly Madly office design aims to create a non-office, office space. With its fresh and energetic ambiance, it provides a welcoming environment for the team to thrive and excel. From the greenery and natural light to the interactive elements and playful touches, every aspect of the workspace design contributes to a vibrant and productive atmosphere.
