OUR RESPONSE : 

  • The floor plan maximizes the flexibility and day light penetration and fosters collaboration of varying work styles and efficiency.
  • The work tables are made 3\” less in either dimensions without comprising in efficiency, but allow wider passages and greater sense of openness.
  • Glass partitions separates different groups while retaining visual link. The wood strips on the glass partitions hide the joints and give character to the space.
  • Privacy and identity are evident in the more secluded break-out spaces, where the contemporary pine stripe lines appear in several iterations in ceilings, partition walls, wooden screens and other visual cues.
  • The colour palette of the space is neutral with the furniture, accessories, cement sheet wall panelling of varying thickness in the working zone and splashes of texture paint in the passage area.
  • The coldness of polished concrete in the passage are is softened by white paint on the right side wall and glass partitions on the left side.
