ID21’s move to a loftier duplex unit in the same office block presented an opportunity to give the staff more generous and inspiring premises, as well as reinvent workplace design to showcase ID21’s creative capabilities.
A key design consideration was to maximise the double-volume height and enhance well-being through an airy, naturally-lit environment. To achieve the ideal balance of social interaction, collaboration, and individual concentration, department-based environments are carved out from whilst seamlessly woven in the flow of the open-plan environment.
A discreet logo on the entrance is laser cut and bent, alluding to the origami concept seen in ID21’s logo. Whilst subtle, the spatial identity’s strength comes from the visitor journey: from the outside, a heavy oxidized copper sliding door gives away a little of the space inside.
The concept of design contrasts was developed to create an inspiring and energising workspace: the rainforest-themed reception evoke tranquillity as visitors enter, before turning the corner to face a bright and vibrant office, stimulating the senses. This element of surprise continues around every turn, heightened by the experience of each distinct area and the energy of the teams themselves.
Designed to improve staff well-being, fun elements were injected into the space, incorporating game areas and an iconic pink neon “Keep Calm and Rock On” light emblazoned on a feature wall.
True to our vision statement, we transform spaces to bring out the best in people and it starts with ID21.
