Keen to move away from an austere and corporate look and feel, and towards a more relaxed and welcoming environment in order to appeal to a broader range of potential tenants, the client wanted to create a space that was commercially appealing but also set the standard for their portfolio going forward.
‘kin worked closely with the main contractor TMT to ensure every aspect of the design was implemented to the highest standard. The team held a series of workshops with TMT and the various subcontractors to talk them through each part of the design. ‘As a result, we built a great relationship with them – which definitely made for a better end result,’ Matt comments.
Connecting with the user was at the heart of the concept, making them feel comfortable with a sense of familiarity, fostering the sense that the space is theirs to use as they wish. ‘From the way we designed elements such as the chandelier through to the finishes, we wanted to excite and enthuse people that visit the building. It was important that no matter what time of day or even year you visit the space, there is always that familiarity.’
