Professional Products Development Academy for L’Oréal is a state of the art academy to train professionals and educate them in the latest product offerings by L’Oréal. The design by DCA Architects creates interactive spaces for these professionals to work in multifunctional zones that blend together seamlessly.
A proactive approach to sustainable design is demonstrated through water efficiency and energy consumption along with innovation in design, especially in creating a space which has the ability to transform itself into a huge space for promotional events and then re-transform itself into classrooms.
Parametric planning results in a focal space in the centre. With doors opening into this spill over area, the studios are defined by a series of sliding and folding partitions made in glass that help in augmenting the visual connection and ensuring that natural light permeates deep into the central space.
The moveable wall system when folded and parked, create a unified space which caters to a stage and seating for about 150 professionals. A cohesive approach to sustainability is adopted where all the parameters of the Platinum LEED Certification are met efficiently.
