Space Design

Spicy Life considers space as an interface
in order to assign meaning and quality of use.

Spicy Life deals mainly with two kinds of spaces: public spaces (reception area, exhibition, public building...), and professional spaces (workshops, hospitals, workrooms...).

Although use goals and users typologies differ, approaches and issues are similar: location lisibility, sensorial comfort matching the activities, movements savings and organization efficiency, atmosphere and spaces meanings.

We begin by identifying usage goals through a process of User Research and Service Design.
In situ observations notably provide an indentification of the limiting factors of the current spaces.

We then think of the spacial organization of the functional processes. This phase may be accompanied with models and user-tests.

Furthermore, we provide fitting-out specifications (perceived atmospheres, lights, acoustics...).
At this stage, an architect partner is involved to advise building processes and materials matching the preset specifications, and to rationalize the project cost.
Finally, the architect partner may lead the transforming work.

Functional Analysis

The functionnal analysis aims at precisely identifying the uses of the current spaces with their limitations. We compare this first study with the features of the new uses to implement. We provide a synthetic document presenting recommandations of global organization, management of flows, and specific spaces features.

Work Stations

Our user researchers and ergonomists analyze the workstations to propose layout recommandations. According to the specific issues to address, we improve comfort and work conditions, performance and productivity, we propose layouts and organizations improving relaxation and creativity. We also work to adapt a workstation to an handicap.


Spicy Life works in partnership with an architecture studio to identifiy and quantify the technical means: structure, materials, networks.... We can then manage the transformation works.
