A Green Space
The interior design of this building is a continuation of the concept created for the company’s headquarters. Natural maple wood is a dominant material, alongside large areas of carpeting. The colour scheme is kept deliberately simple: green in the main passages and grey in the open plan offices. The focus in breakout areas is directed towards furniture, fabric and lighting, which are essential in providing each area its individual style and mood.
The main entrance is given a more dramatic treatment; contrast created through use of materials such as metal and stone. Wooden beams and a glass handrail add warmth. Pendant lighting suspended in random layers breaks up the rigidity of the space.
