Philippines — Integrated marketing company in the Philippines, MullenLowe TREYNA, has unveiled its hybrid workspace and setup this February in the middle of softened social restrictions. According to the agency, by integrating learnings across different disciplines and work styles, the group prioritises results and culture-building as it rethinks a better way of working.

Vital to the renovation project, Mel Jimenez, client services director for MullenLowe TREYNA, commented on the purpose of creating a tranquil workplace, saying that work that requires focus and deep thinking can be done at home or anywhere. Jimenez adds that there’s nothing like in-person brainstorming to generate creative sparks and inspire lively discussion.

Mike Trillana, chairman and CEO of MullenLowe TREYNA, commented, “We found a great partner in One/Zero Design. They worked closely with us to make sure the space could accommodate meetings big and small, and be reconfigured easily, with modular partitions and mixed-use areas. And because we went for a hotdesk system, no one has to look far to find a power outlet.”

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

Simultaneously, Abi Aquino, chief creative officer of MullenLowe TREYNA, disclosed the importance of a fun workplace, saying, “Most importantly, we wanted The Ink Bar back. Being able to decompress and have fun together is what many of us missed while working from home. Those moments go a long way in making the day-to-day feel just that much lighter.”

According to the agency, hygiene and health considerations were top of mind in developing the new workspace. The open space design encourages ventilation, and air purifiers and sanitizing stations are appropriately placed throughout the newly-renovated office. Online booking and scheduling ensure that the space can work at different occupancy levels as the situation requires.

Recently, MullenLowe TREYNA also unveiled a series of key senior promotions.
