Have you ever imagined working in an art gallery? How inspiring it must be to be surrounded by works of art that spark conversations, spark the imagination and are also a feast for the eyes. So much so that even a simple email can sound like beautiful prose.

Unless you are an artist or a curator, this might not be possible. But employees of Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) can get a taste of this one-of-a-kind work experience as Robinsons Offices transforms their offices into art galleries.

Showcasing Filipino ingenuity

RLC has always demonstrated Filipino ingenuity in all its developments. As part of their mission to showcase the immeasurable potential of Filipino talent, they have decorated their offices with paintings by some of the country’s talented local artists.

The paintings they handpicked were inspired by Filipino traits and values ​​that RLC also embodies: hardworking, industrious, enterprising, enterprising, big on sustainability and community building, to name a few- one.

These works of art were certainly not just an afterthought. They blend in perfectly with the Filipino interiors of the office which include touches of solihiya on the cabinets, pantry walls and chairs, Machuca tiles and Capiz light fixtures.

The paintings, showcasing different aspects of a Filipino community, also blend with the social features of the office, including gathering areas, billiards, table tennis, foosball areas, town hall, and room.

But even with these masterpieces and gorgeous interiors that make up RLC’s office on the 25th floor of Cyberscape Alpha in Pasig, stepping inside will instantly feel like home. As you cross the door, you will be greeted by a veranda and, adjoining it, the living room or Hello, as we would call it, it resembles that of a typical Filipino house.

Parts of the office will also be familiar to anyone who grew up in a Filipino family where medals, certificates and paintings are usually displayed by proud parents or grandparents on their walls. The only difference is that in the RLC office, the paintings made by local artists are the ones that are proudly displayed.

Art and productivity

These works of art bring more than beauty to the walls of RLC. They also aim to make employees feel more comfortable when they return to work in the office after more than two years of working from home.
