Increasing the people density on the floor puts pressure on the engineering – the need for more lighting and ACs for instance. We addressed this through clever interior design and strategic furniture placement. The collaborative furniture was designed to visually break the floor into smaller teams, without the use of space-consuming partitions. And then, with open workstations, lockers for all, and easy access to collaboration zones; we turned this into a highly-functional space that addresses the unique needs of varied teams.
A highlight of this project is the manner in which we negotiated spaces without building walls. We met the client’s requirement of acoustic and visual privacy without building enclosed cabins. Collaborative furniture was wrapped with acoustic materials to absorb 80% of the sound at source. By saving here, we invested in higher-quality chairs, better finishes that last long. And going beyond the client’s brief, we even helped the client save on energy bills for the decade ahead.
This was a project for 2 floors, at the end of which the client awarded us the project for 15 more floors.
