In October 2017, 1st Main was born, and part of that process was reconstructing an office space that was almost 20 years old. It was located in Raheja Arcade, Koramangala one of the oldest office buildings in Bangalore.

Our goal was to create an open space that encouraged communication and collaboration. The changes were simple, functional and inexpensive.

A lot of work needed to be done.

We needed a meeting room that would serve as a way for the team to come together, as well as a formal-ish space for client meetings.

A small yet light-filled room to come together for meetings and discussions

This was going to be our first office, an extension of ourselves and our brand — so we were paying attention to the details from flooring to furniture to stocking the kitchenette.

The large space enables us to do shoots without having to rent out expensive studios.
