Commendation for interior architecture

A commendation is awarded to this project for the creative and thorough brief development, the consultation process, the design intentions and the outstanding results.

A multilevel low-rise working environment is arranged across an elongated plan, linked vertically by a glazed atrium inhabited with cafes, meeting rooms, and work and recreation amenity spaces.

The vertical integration of spaces contributes to the working relations of the various groups within the company, and the clusters of work areas within each floor further enhance this concept.

Perimeter zones on each floor have a variety of functions, including both dedicated and informal work areas, which provide happy environments for the pursuit of business.

Good environmental and sustainable design disciplines contribute to a stimulating and creative work place, and the design intentions and framework allow the normal clutter of the individual work point to be easily absorbed within a simple yet dramatic place of work.

This project provides an excellent example of what the office of the future can aspire to.
