Creating a cosy, comfortable appeal to the office

Altico, Mumbai

Altico is a non-banking finance company focusing on senior secured lending for real estate projects in India’s Tier-1 cities. For its new office, the firm wanted to create a tactile work environment to attract talent and support organisational growth. Our design strategy focused on creating a comfortable and familiar setting to capture the connection to home.

Altico has established itself as a strong brand with a solid foundation, reflected in its slogan, ‘Financing India’s Future’. To translate this identity, we established a home-office design concept with materiality inspired by mid-century industrial architecture. The theme nods to Altico’s roots in lending to the real estate and asset-backed sectors and is expressed through raw bricks, concrete finishes, and exposed ceilings.

To capture a residential aesthetic, plants and greenery bring a natural look-and-feel to the space. Even the smallest details express the overall design concept. In the washrooms, interiors have been revamped in a mid-century style that continues the overall interior design language and supports the user experience.

Because Mumbai has the highest rental prices in India, the efficient planning was another key element of Altico’s workspace design. Totalling 6,000 sq. ft. across a single floorplate, modular planning, helped optimise efficiency for the office. The layout balances collaboration spaces with the need for privacy, encouraging a productive environment that connects the Altico community.

This new office represents our ambition to be a leading financial firm driven by global standards shared by our world-renowned foreign shareholders.
