PrizeHonorable Mention
Entry Description

GoGo squeeZ is a young company producing squeezable applesauce. In their expanded office space, the client sought to create a fun, approachable, open environment in line with their branding. Architecture and identity was pushed through material and informal-formal meeting spaces. The application of a spine in this project scales down to a storage-full ‘Playwall’ complete with felt shape cut outs referencing the youth of many GoGo SqeeZ consumers. The client felt strongly that an open office was vital for light and promoting democracy within the company. Luca Andrisani Architects was able to combine branding with the occasional need for productive privacy: pixelated apple trees screen floating meeting rooms called pods while logo-perforated felt panels slide on glass perimeter conference rooms.
