Inloki Plays With Indoor/Outdoor Space for an Outsystems Office in Portugal

PROJECT NAME Outsystems
LOCATION Proença-a-Nova
FIRM

The global optimized IT services and solutions company has offices everywhere from Boston to Dubai, each embodying a flexible, open-space approach and an industrial spirit. For their new office in Proença-a-Nova, a small town in central Portugal, Inloki founder needed to capture that character on a smaller scale and budget.

“It was an investment shared by Outsystems and the municipality,” Pinto says, in an effort to employ local workers and residents. First, Inloki added a new volume to an existing three-story building for social areas, with an open-air patio on top. Then, inspired by the firm’s logo, they added a steel staircase. “It was a huge challenge,” Pinto says, “to concept and build and assemble in situ the different pieces.”

The steel staircase, illuminated by Climar lighting, connects three levels of work area. Photography by João Morgado - Fotografia de Arquitectura.

After all that work, though, came the play: a slide suggested by Outsystems employees, stadium seating to watch the fun, and a charming graphic wall designed by the Portuguese street artist .
