A PIONEER of flexible working arrangements in the industry, MullenLowe Treyna (MLT) officially launched its hybrid workspace and setup in late February 2021. Integrating learnings across different disciplines and work styles, the group prioritized results and building culture by reinventing a better way to work.

“Work that requires focus and careful thought can be done from home or anywhere,” said Mel Jimenez, director of client services. “But nothing like in-person brainstorming to generate creative sparks and inspire lively discussions.” Jimenez took on the added task of overseeing the renovation of the hybrid space, from presenting the interior design brief to selecting vintage mid-century accents.

“We have found a great partner in One/Zero Design,” added Mike Trillana, President and CEO. “They worked closely with us to ensure the space could accommodate meetings large and small, and be easily reconfigured with modular partitions and mixed-use areas. And because we opted for a system hotdesk, no one has to look far to find a power outlet.”

“When the initial idea for the space was presented to our studio, there was a particular focus on designing the office as a ‘social anchor.’ The world has adapted to working from anywhere, but maintaining a strong office culture is a priority for Mullenlowe Treyna,” said Arts Serrano, founder of One/Zero Design Co.

Hygiene and health considerations were at the forefront. The open space design encouraged ventilation, and air purifiers and sanitizing stations were tastefully placed throughout.

“Most importantly, we wanted The Ink Bar back,” added Abi Aquino, MLT’s creative director and in-house mixologist.

The MLT group was on the 15th floor of the Rufino Tower in Makati. For inquiries (and Ink Bar cocktail recipes), email [email protected]
