Fox International Channels was looking for something different than a corporate office in the design of its Guatemalan headquarters. Local firm Studio Domus wanted the connect the company with the urban environment of Guatemala City, so it created a space designed to invite pedestrians in off the street.

The office incorporates two art galleries and a sports bar, which are open to the general public. Outside parking spaces were removed, allowing access to nearby Plaza Cristobal Colon and providing a space to host outdoor activities such fair and exhibitions. Employees interact casually in recreation areas that include a basketball court and ping-pong tables.

The existing building was stripped of its masonry and renovated with clean lines and fresh, vibrant colors in an open office layout. Instead of air conditioning, the building uses a passive cooling system based on natural ventilation, skylights and chimneys.
