Two websites have consolidated into one modern, inspiring, and productive Caesarea workspace for Edwards Lifesciences, an area through which the story and essence of the healthcare firm exudes.
The location chosen for the brand new Edwards Lifesciences Innovation Middle in Israel is the Granit Campus within the lovely metropolis of Caesarea. The constructing itself is one in every of three, constructed round a park with a pond, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
RDA was commissioned to plan and design the inside of the brand new area, merging two firm websites within the course of, two and half flooring related by an iconic staircase. Our aim on the outset was to create an modern, inspiring, and productive workspace whereas reflecting the story and essence of the corporate.
Edwards Lifesciences is an American medical know-how firm specializing in synthetic coronary heart valves and hemodynamic monitoring. The design idea for the area was based mostly on two distinguished merchandise developed in Israel, one strives to shut whereas the opposite goals to open.
With a purpose to spotlight and infuse the story of Edwards into the work environments, the final morphology of the tempo itself and the weather in it are derived from the juxtaposition of natural shapes depicting the human coronary heart and physique, along with inflexible orthogonal shapes related to engineering.
These themes are expressed within the area by means of materiality, customized made components, shapes, and patterns. It may be seen primarily within the distinctive ceiling all through the workplaces which have natural formed openings permitting a look on the mechanical methods. One other instance is framework set up within the cafeteria which retraces the silhouette of the 4 coronary heart chambers. The three-dimensional piece creates a unique expertise within the area and fortifies the id and targets of Edwards throughout the structure, whereas concurrently inspiring staff and guests alike. As compared, the set up located in the principle entrance between two columns is impressed by the geometry and type of the corporate product moderately than the human physique.
One of many most important challenges on this venture was creating a fancy dress designed open area workstation. The workstation needed to adjust to the scale of the merchandise the engineers work with together with supplementary storage, all of the whereas offering privateness with out closing off the area altogether. The ultimate product is a results of rigorous work of the Edwards and RDA groups, culminating a sit-stand desk with exactly deliberate storage, together with industrial personalized partitions that permit privateness, a writable floor, and acoustic supplies.
Accenting the whole venture are murals, 3d installations, textual content, interactive components, and video artwork. This facet of the area is predicated on the corporate’s model, aiming to symbolize it within the each day lifetime of the workers, encourage and produce them nearer to firm’s targets and beliefs.
