Gjirafa is the first browser in Albanian language. Even though it was founded in America, the work is done in two main centers in Kosovo, in Prizren and Prishtina. Gjirafa gains its success according to the communication of interpersonal relations. This communication is achieved due to the coordination of the work and the socialization of the team work.
The work coordination, as a priority has the organization of the space. For this reason, Maden Group, during the design process of the working space, puts in the first place the functionalization of every corner. The working-day begins at the personal bar of Gjirafa, which is made of organic wood and continues to the relaxing space after the release of the final product. The organization of the work and space starts from the waiting area, the meeting room and the working part. The bean bags, the brain-storming zone, the mini-library, are working areas without stress. A unique element which besides the usage, the function and the relax is also the most highlighted part of the facility. The orange-metallic shipping-container, as a recycling material, integrated on the interior, comes as an out of the blueobject which intrigues the curiosity for its whereabouts. The inner space is used as a meeting-room while upon the container there is a hammock to rest and relax.
The inner function, the work coordination regarding the chosen design, makes the environment more comfortable for the team and their socialization. As you stand up from your working desk, you go through a bunch of bean bags placed in front of the TV, to read a book in the library, to relax on the rocking chairs as well as take a nap on the hammock; nevertheless, this would increase the socialization of the workers.
