This innovative 6,000 square metre workspace spanning six floors is designed specifically to support and nurture a neurodiverse workforce. A variety of workspaces accommodate a full spectrum of sensory preferences. It includes spaces with complete acoustic separation for those sensitive to auditory stimuli and uses colour and texture to define each space's function, allowing for an intuitive experience. A centralized app allows smartphone-controlled entry, automated locker access and workspace bookings, accommodating a variety of interaction comfort levels. It also provides real-time data on space usage, enabling employees to choose spaces according to their preferences and comfort.
Lighting levels vary throughout the workspace to accommodate individual preferences, with 50% of workstations near windows and the rest deep within the floor plan. Seating on the periphery of social spaces offers a place for those who prefer to observe rather than engage directly.
