We created a story to support the design inspiration. The concept was centered around the idea of ‘traditional trade commodities’. Each department was allocated a different commodity, which informed the theme of the space. The overall design was consistent with the elegant atmosphere of a financial institution, however it featured subtle elements that hinted towards them.
The different themes were portrayed through – textures, colours, and shapes emulated them. Emphasis was also placed on employee well-being. An abundance of natural light, and open circulation paths informed and pointed out meeting areas and spaces for collaboration.
