winner qb award 2006 for best office interior under r5m
to plan, design and build on a turnkey basis, and procure furniture for an open plan office for staff and executives of a new subsidiary company of an existing and well-respected international brand. the office needed to reflect the association with the brand in a fun, fresh and dynamic way.
the design achieved both flexibility and economy in the use of the space. in planning the space, we used a series of sliding planes to delineate different functions available in specific areas, depending on whether a function required privacy or not. layers of screening allowed the client to achieve the desired control over the use of the space.
brand identity was a strong element of the interior, incorporated into the furniture and furnishings, and colour choice.
“ we wanted to give our office space a modern yet fun and inspiring face-lift that would infuse creative energy and stimulate a productive and uplifting working environment for our employees” (e gassner, ceo autobay , quoted from plascon colour magazine , issue 07 2007)
