the idea of the "New Workplace" has created a demand for innovation in the design of office working environments. Many technology based companies are rejecting traditional fitouts in favour of solutions that reflect their position on the cutting edge of their fields and provide a space that stimulates and supports valued employees.

The brief for the project was succinct yet specific.

The client required a contemporary environment that facilitates interaction, communication and used high-tech materials in innovative ways to reflect the company's technology leadership.
