INTERIOR DESIGNERS OF ALBERTA – MASI AWARD RECIPIENT FOR:
OFFICE OVER $80 PER SQUARE FOOT
Location: Brookfield Place
A new-age office that is thought provoking and evolving with energy and flow. With a concept of Adaptation and Resilience, the project forged ahead despite the global events. Resilience morphed into Response, reflecting transformation and endurance. The project commenced in March 2020 and was completed March 2021.
The front of house represents dark industrial minimalism while the back of house is bright monochrome modernism. The design evolves, demonstrating the evolution from the dark to the light, signifying economical revival on the horizon. As a beacon of hope and connection, local artists were commissioned for one-of-a-kind murals, woodwork, tapestries and canvases to populate the zones with vibrant displays of human ingenuity. Transitioning to the brightness and promising outlook, a custom mural entitled The Future is Bright provides a preview of the hope and energy flowing through the space. An expansive theatre, lounge and custom 24-foot bar embrace a vision for a prosperous future where all can come together.
From the moment the elevator door opens, light and shadow play on the floors and walls; an integral experience that leads the occupant into one unique environment after another. A particular part of the space has 14’ high exposed ceiling and open expanse from one end of the floor plate to the other, where one’s imagination can run free in the intentionally raw environment. The 4th floor is situated to offer a unique meshing of the modern industrial interior to the energy and street style. The workplace as an ecosystem and part of it is the people bustling on the sidewalks below, while the neighbouring heritage buildings become wall-art, enhancing the textural character of the perimeter curtain walls.
