MR&A

This project concerned the layout of Electronic Arts new office within the scope of its establishment in Geneva. Based right in the city center, on Molard square, the specifications expected modern, comfortable and original premises.

MR&A is really proud of its intervention on this outstanding project. Spread on 7 floors, 3’000 m2 were affected by this workspace layout for 121 workstations, in a setting using all this video games company’s codes. Thus, the layout and the decoration create a serene, completely dedicated to the gaming universe, with 9 relaxation and spare time spaces. Premises favor productivity thanks to a layout in open-plan spaces which stimulate exchanges, livened up with 16 meeting rooms from 2 to 12 seats, and a media center with a capacity of 35 guests, in the basement. On the 1st floor, a cafeteria is made up of 32 seats and each floor has a coffee cart. The last element that adds comfort and aestheticism to the whole is the arranged patio on the 2nd floor.

Transformation of the existing space required partitions of corridors-offices separation demolition, as they were incompatible with the new layout of the place designed by MR&A. Space is mainly delimited by many glazed partitions and separations in order to preserve as much as possible natural light in meeting rooms, individual offices and open-plan spaces. This gives to the whole a modern and convivial finish. Security measures regarding distances, fire detection, lighting and markings were adapted and completed in order to conform with directives.

In charge of the project management , MR&A was responsible for its design, budget monitoring and space planning.
