This office for a developer needed a secured form of access. A central tube forms the crux of the organisation of the floor layout around which all rooms are planned. This tube not only allows access of people to and from different rooms, it also carries HVAC, electrical conduits and other services. This allowed us to drop the ceiling only within the central tube and have more height in the rest of the areas.
Natural materials were used in a way to create a welcoming space that conveyed a sense of luxury to customers and prospective home owners. Polished in-situ concrete flooring at the entrance and working areas, wooden flooring in the cabins and stainless steel cladding on the central tube is the basic materiality of the project.
