Most of the furniture and fittings were customised. Ergonomic furniture selections were motivated by product-space, space-people, and people-community relationships. The lighting, the angular forms of the furniture with solids and voids, and the choice of material, all added to the fluidity and expansiveness of the space. Clever zoning & orientation of enclosures created spaces that could be used for numerous work modes.
To achieve the desired finish and deadlines, we worked closely with the craftsmen. We ensured minimum wastage by doing a lot of shop drawings. The cutting of ply for formwork too was done in a way so that the rest of it could be reused. These are small big things that reduced the overall spend for the client.
A highlight of this project? We managed to address all the needs of the client within 10,000 sq ft of the 40,000 sq ft space allocated; the rest was eventually let out. We achieved this and more by spending a lot of time with the client's teams, in understanding their needs. And thereon, demonstrating expertise in coordination, communication and a lot of patience through briefing, material sourcing, and execution.
All, for a space designed to inspire, bring joy, and work for the people it is built for - as evident from SYNAPSE still working out of this chosen space.
