Housing Johnson Partners, a boutique revolutionary consulting firm, the city view becomes the bonus and interaction the main act. Circular feature lighting fixtures hang at considerably lower levels than the exposed ceiling and Louis Poulsen sconces line the corridor wall in couplets to create warm golden auras at head height.
The pandemic accelerated the hybrid concept of working from home so we created a physically comforting embrace akin to domestic settings with flickers of retro-futuristic flair. Carpet combs walls plus banquettes; lighting plus custom tables take on saucer-like forms.
The spatial strategy is non-hierarchical, reflecting the egalitarian ethos of the company. Circles and concave embraces including a rendered wall with elongated apertures cocooning a meeting table enhance fluid navigation around the open plan office.
Possessing a theatrical quality that is equally intimate, a draped custom-dyed linen curtain arc can instantly create private enclosure for solo work or draw open, producing an informal meeting space.
