About Competition

Breaking Work briefed to design a coworking space for offices/small enterprises to hire only for a few months in a year. The need of this office is different from a solo coworking and requires some extent of customization to make this a tailormade office environment while keeping the good parts of coworking intact.

The design of this coworking space is particularly tricky since every company has its own specific needs when it comes to office equipment. But in this challenge, we are mainly trying to see how a single space can be transformed to perform an array of functions with smart design interventions.

The furniture will be the constant occupant of this space. Its dismantling and installation process must be made convenient, requiring less labor and time. Modular, convertible, compact, foldable, or any other type of furniture design can be used. They could be merged into the structural design or be removed and stored away, used only when needed. The participants can come up with their own ideas for these temporary workspaces. Despite the use of modular elements, the scope for personalization must be provided.


Convenience – The office must be functional and the transformation must be seamless.

Space Efficiency – The space available must be used efficiently and it’s capacity enhanced with smart interventions.

Ambiance – The workspace ambiance must encourage a good work culture.

Growth/Evolution – How will this workspace change with changing trends in office demands of the future?

About the Organizer

UNFUSE Serves as a unit block for UNI in the field of Architecture. It intends to break the fusion of traditional design barriers and methodologies by making it a platform for experimentation and conceptual exchange of ideas in architecture, urbanism, society, culture, and ecology. It is a research initiative dedicated to providing opportunities for designers from all domains to explore ideas that go beyond the boundaries of architectural discipline and enrich our built environment; thereby opening up possibilities for the promotion of architectural thought at a global level.
