The scope of the works associated with the refurbishment of the building included provision of reconfigured office accommodation for up to 250 employees across six floors, ancillary areas such as meeting rooms, tea stations, canteen, cellular offices and breakout spaces.
Working closely with the occupier of the building – an agency providing child and family support services – we have gained a strong appreciation for their core values: responsive, inclusive and outward looking. This understanding has been achieved through a series of workshops that have given us an insight of how they would like to see their workplace. We are also well versed when it comes to the agency Guidelines and have worked closely with them to determine the appropriate workstation layouts and workplace ratios.
Adhering to an extremely modest budget, the new space takes its inspiration from the company’s bright branding palette. The general flooring and walls were in neutral subdued hues with the injection of bright colours in the breakout furniture and accent walls. Carpet tile pattern differentiates workspaces from the breakout areas. The extensive external glazing maximizes daylight and views, while a palette of fresh colors punctuate white walls and white workstations. The result is a clean, crisp office that harmonizes modern workplace design with the requirements of this particular agency.
