movement created an office made from the energy of total energy Spain.
The energy industry is constantly changing. total energyis a multi-energy company that has undergone a major business and cultural transformation, choosing flexibility, transparency, intimacy and sustainability as its key values. movement We have designed our new headquarters in Spain to reflect these values.
A venue designed to facilitate a flexible and collaborative model of work, offering a variety of meeting places to meet formally and informally, a place for socializing, or a place to concentrate and perform individual tasks. There are places to find places. Most of these collaboration spaces consist of two intersecting bays to organize the neighborhood and control the size of the open plan.
The new post-corona office is primarily a place for collaboration and strengthening the culture of the organization. To do this, use the void where the old escalator was to join both floors with a multi-purpose staircase central to the office. It’s not just an aisle, it’s also a space for meetings, informal work, and collaboration. Accommodating events from 12 to over 80 attendees, it has windows overlooking the tracks and litmus glass railings that change color depending on where you look, recalling the energy pathways of TotalEnergies.
This project was carried out in collaboration with a construction company elsa Also involved were numerous TotalEnergies employees who participated in the design. The project was completed in a short period of nine months from initial sketches to launch.
The steering committee and CEO were involved throughout the decision-making process led by the HR team.
With over 40 employees actively participating in the design process through interviews and co-creation workshops, The Move was able to learn not only their expectations, but also their ideas for the new office. As a result, the design incorporates the company’s perspective and the headquarters reflects its values.
The Move design team wanted to ensure that all workstations had natural light, so they were plagued with the layout of the space. Thus, the team created the ‘Plazas de la Energia’, which consists of 10 spaces that serve as activity centers for the headquarters. Each space is dedicated to an energy type, conveying the company’s new multi-energy orientation to users and visitors.
The square was carefully designed with a backlit textile ceiling and overhead lights passing through perforated acoustic panels patterned according to each type of energy. and, together with the lighting design, help compensate for the lack of natural light in the center of the floor plan.
A major highlight of the office is the multi-purpose staircase that serves as the heart of the headquarters and represents TotalEnergies’ new value energy pathway.

Overall result of the project
The office’s response exceeded all Total Energies expectations. Our daily occupancy rates far exceed our expectations, with far too many employees choosing to come to the office on a regular basis despite having a completely flexible model.
Employees from other TotalEnergy locations, satellite companies and partners are seeking permission to work in the new space.
The function space is not only the heart of the office, but also a space that represents a relationship with the community, as events with external attendees and participants are held regularly. Other prominent civic groups in Oviedo have requested space to host their own events.
