Exotic Food (XO) is public company whose business involves exportation of Thai food and flavors to countries worldwide. Foundation of XO’s success lies in their potential to constantly be adaptive to changes. The decision to improve and expand office, especially, in this particular time, coincides with our belief that ‘office space will remain and become more important, even in the time when people no longer need to physically be at an office in order to work.’ The current and future offices will therefore not only cater to work practices like it had been in the past but are expected to represent and communicate an organization’s corporate identity while facilitating collective goals and unity among employees.
The colors red and black, and other elements conveying XO’s identity are utilized to create strong, unified image, discernible to both company’s personnel and visitors who have a chance to visit the actual office or see it online.
XO is divided into four sections. ‘Support Core’ is designed to improve staff’s work efficiency consisting of small meeting rooms, phone booths for online meetings, managers’ offices, workshop room and storage. ‘Main Core’ comprises main office space and other functional spaces like canteen, bar and amphitheater. ‘External Core’ is created to accommodate visitors and made up of two main meeting rooms that can be partitioned or connected into one large conference room supporting various functionalities from formal meetings, group workshops or class lectures. ‘Internal Core’ is casual workspace designed to encourage team-working environments.
Front part of ‘Main Core’ when combined with ‘External Core’ and ‘Internal Core’, creates a large, connected functional space referred to as XO Core. This particular part of program is used to host activities representing organization’s corporate identity, especially the ones with a large number of attendants such as Town Hall or company parties.
