The architects used the existing walls to create a variety of vibrant, new private spaces, thus saving resources and money. They proposed an chromatic pattern that reinvents the 1,670 sqm space. Reminiscent of the company’s logo, blocks of colour saturate the walls and carpets creating a strong visual impact and demarcate different zones in a fluid progression. The open-plan workspace design adapts to small-group work sessions as well as large collaborative and creative atmospheres. A white corridor balances the strong colourful areas and acts as a spine, connecting the meeting rooms. White vinyl panels in the corridor define several breakout areas where employees can have a chat and rest from their busy schedules.
