The design was based on a new trend in image and architecture for offices worldwide. Its concern for the social and environmental elements, as well as the wellbeing of its employees has led it to implement strategies of global sourcing and start readapting its offices. The centre or heart of the design is interaction. This is achieved through dynamic furniture, informal sofas and mobile seats, visitors’ reception, coffee, copiers and printing stations. The space was adapted with high-technology, such as videoconferencing facilities, to facilitate communication and teamwork.

The new space emerges from an intense analysis of the representation of each of its business areas; groceries, perishables, consumables and pharmacy, general merchandise, self-service and online purchases. The business’s corporate colours – blue, yellow, purple and green – as well as other brand elements feature throughout.
