This series of projects, 2 headquarters offices and the flagship store, was the result of an open competition won by HB Design in collaboration with architects HYLA.
The design proposal combined ‘high-tech” with “hi-touch”. Almost all elements were custom designed, from the typical workstations to the gull-wing uplights. A key concept was the introduction of informal meeting “pods” located within the open plan office landscape.
These were enclosed in cocoon shaped forms, a combination of plywood fins and lumasite (a composite of acrylic and fibreglass). Executive offices located along the perimeter feature extensive glazing to the central work areas.
