Education First (EF) is an international language teaching company. We helped its new sales offices in Samborondón Business Center from the very beginning—including conceptualization, design and plans, construction budget and implementation. As with most international companies, it required direct communication with its foreign representatives, both remotely and in person.
Functionally, the 140 square meters of space were divided into two areas. The first area is the ground floor—a public space—intended for the sale and promotion of its student programs. The second floor is the mezzanine—a private area where corporate offices are located. The general aesthetic of this project is characterized by having open spaces with few divisions of glass, floating laminate flooring in oak finish to add warmth and an industrial aesthetic collaborating with the facilities seen in the mezzanine. Its main clients are young students so the color palette includes pastel and cheerful tones.
