The designers prioritized sustainability and agility throughout the renovation process. They carefully selected low-impact and recycled materials, ensuring that the office’s fit-out would have minimal environmental impact. Timber framing and OSB board were the primary materials used, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere.

One of the standout features of the office is the movable wall panels. These versatile modules, some of which are equipped with whiteboards or magnetic surfaces, allow for flexible workspaces that can adapt to the company’s needs. Whether it’s a small team meeting or a large brainstorming session, the walls can be adjusted to accommodate different functions.

As visitors enter the office from the lobby, they are greeted by a stunning timber-covered entryway. This space houses the reception area, waiting lounge, and gallery-events space. The reception desk itself is a unique creation, covered in spools of recycled denim that serve both an acoustic and tactile function. Upholstered benches line the main circulation path, providing comfortable seating for guests.
