Since the last time we spoke about our new workspace, a lot has changed. Now that the workplace has a lived-in feel to it, we spoke to some of our team members to know how human-centric the space really is. They responded by telling us about the zones within the JTCPL Designs workspace that they most connected with. Each nook and every corner is special to different members for different reasons. Here are some of the JTCPL Design zones that took the first five spots:


  1. 1. Prathamesh Khandekar, Head, Strategic Initiatives: The Foyer

“As a strategist, I have an inclination towards spaces that create a great first impression. The entrance foyer to JTCPL Designs is what you see as soon as you enter the floor. And it sets a great tone for what’s to come – complete with the sculpture and the stark backdrop that makes our orange logo stand out in dramatic contrast. The play of light and shadow too is an excellent exhibit of what we’re capable of doing with spaces – irrespective of material.”


2. Vipul Tapke, Chief Architect: My Office

 “I’m perhaps partial to this cabin, owing to the fact that it’s where I mostly operate out of, at JTCPL Designs. It’s where I also brainstorm with other members of my team and sometimes interact with clients. The two paintings mirroring each other across the walls embody our intention to match our vision with our clients’ and to furnish them with something better than both sides imagined.”



3. Aakanksha Tayade, Senior Designer: : The Workbay

 “If JTCPL Designs were an organism, then this workbay would be the pulsing heart of it all. It’s where all the magic happens, with each of us ideating, creating and collaborating. The affirmations on the ceiling engraved in the JTCPL Designs colours are a great source of motivation.”



4. Siddharth Sukhathankar, Senior Manager, Projects: The Oasis 

 “Usually pantries are closed off areas, isolated into oblivion. But we looked at it as an opportunity for innovation. The green wall is visible to visitors too. For many team members, it serves as a respite and meditative zone in the middle of a busy day. The mellow lighting along with the greenery has an instant calming effect on us all.”



5. Ninad Tipnis, Founder & Principal: The Library

 “While every corner in my own office is in line with the JTCPL Designs vision, this book shelf is where I’ve added a slice of me. This little library works as a source of inspiration for me and my visitors too. This past year, I’ve added more titles to the shelf – some of them are mandatory reads for people like me, some are motivation for other facets of my business and some of these books are composed of tenets that can be applied to life itself.”

I would elaborate more on my own office within this space, but as Antoine Rivarol is quoted in Sales EQ, “It’s the dim haze of mystery that adds enchantment…”

    Great post Ninad!

    We are at our joyful best in places that blow our breath away! Usually at the edge of the unkown, uncertain and the dangerous a precipice, a mountain top, down snow clad mountains while skiing, when the immensity of the landscape in front of us is incomprehensible and so on.

    Will be great when work spaces take our breath away and at the same time bring us all together to express our collective intelligence to make our work an expression of art!.
