28 Jun How we designed our new CodigoDelSur home
We wanted to design an office to match the personality of both the team and the gorgeous house we had so carefully selected as our new home.
About the house: A 1920s mansion that had been originally planned to be built in Paris, but finally constructed in colonial Montevideo. Many interesting things happened in this house, it even was a convent for a while.
About the team: 80 geeks passionate about technology, innovation and a fresh outlook towards the future!
Combining these two concepts, the answer to how we should decorate it became evident: nothing would suit us best than a Steampunk style, combining luxury and sophistication of the old mansion with the innovation and futurism of the team.
This is reflected in the combination of fine leather Chesterfield sofas and a grand piano, along with video art pieces emulating supercomputers from a post-apocalyptic future.
Such combination makes visitors, as well as the team, feel like they’re entering a surreal world of sophistication and technology worthy of a post-apocalyptic movie.
This is CodigoDelSur’s 5th office as the constant growth of the company has required us to continue moving to bigger offices. All the offices of CodigoDelSur have been in the “Prado” neighborhood of Montevideo, and from all of them it was possible to see the church that is around the corner of the house, called Iglesia de las Carmeliltas. Superstition alert here!
We’re excited to see what amazing projects come up in this new stage.
