The past decade saw the advent of new spatial organizations in office design in response to the growing transformation of the workplace as new tools & methods were introduced, largely driven by technology firms. Concepts of flexibility, working remotely, co-working, blending residential & corporate design solutions took root. Slowly however, our own perception of this trend was challenged as notions of permanence and familiarity seemed to have been sacrificed to benefit a less formal approach.
Our objective for this project is to create spaces that are here to age and not look obsolete as trends evolve. One way to accomplish this is to aim for a nuanced classicism and draw upon the great examples of corporate design over the past century. Connecting with past great designs not just as a show of admiration but also humility and strength, qualities that hopefully permeate and reflect a team’s remarkable values.
