What was the biggest challenge?
The goal of our client was to rebuild the burnt down office. To redesign without deviating too far from the existing plan. The challenge faced by our design team was to fully understand the extent of the damage caused by the fire especially with the mechanical and electrical. Also, the damage to the surfaces created a lot of problems when we got to the finishing stage.
Due to the limitation of budget, scrapping the whole building wasn’t an option. We had to do a careful sorting of what can be salvaged from the debris and what we had to discard. We had to integrate a modern glass design into an existing plan. As part of the design, the space features interconnecting doors to private offices. These make room for expansion with the option of getting dedicated wings for added privacy, while still sharing the common areas.
What makes this Project Unique?
What makes this property uniquely collaborative is the three-floor plan that connects the facility. The first and second floor is built to offer extended services, including a virtual office with amenities made available to the community.
