Design Statement:
This 120,000-square-foot project was prompted by the client's decision to consolidate their three existing offices into one location, moving quite far from the central business district. To overcome this, the client sought to create a world-class office environment that made the added commute for its employees worthwhile. The design brief from the client required the inclusion of the client's Global Workplace Standards. It lists out the space types, sizes, and specifications required for the office. There's a whole list of other performance-based guidelines to ensure that the client's technology is optimised. The design team was responsible for the design aesthetic and with the client's clear parameters it gave the design team an exact understanding of what creative boundaries could be pushed. With the company moving to a 100% mobility policy, the office had to provide employees (who were accustomed to the traditional assigned seating workspace) a sense of belonging. Departments would be grouped into neighborhoods but employees could sit anywhere. Senior executives were no longer going to be assigned offices; instead, there were to be audio privacy rooms for any employee to use. As you enter each level, the client's large-scale interactive "Virtual Hello" display screen greets you and indicates what the floor has in store. It allows the user to visually assess the occupancy of the workstations and book meeting rooms. This office has no shortage of collaboration areas to help people engage. An e-café on each floor brings people together and serves as an additional area to work, enabling work to happen anywhere. The design is forward-looking and uplifting, helping the client to attract and retain the next-generation workforce. The response has been overwhelmingly positive. This office is truly innovative and a unique expression of the client's Global Standards and is already serving as a benchmark for other locations around the world.
