The client, a holding company for e-commerce and internet ventures, wanted to locate its corporate staff away from its operating companies in an effort to provide their employees with an environment that would allow them to focus on creating and nurturing new start-ups. R3A’s objective was to provide the users with a work space that would sufficiently stimulate them while conveying a sense of being an established, though not conservative, organization.

The interior architecture and design of the space is a juxtaposition of warm and cool materials, textures and colors, using an amalgam of materials and finishes that attempts to be perceived as adventurous and edgy, without being jarring. This was achieved by employing a vocabulary of materials that were familiar, but detailed in a non-traditional and interesting aesthetic. This approach extended to decisions regarding pattern, detail and color, for the flooring, ceiling, casework, lighting and furniture.
