IRi’s new space design was one that not only met future expansion needs but fostered interaction and a global outlook in an a mainly open planned environment.
The reception and waiting lounge with feature ceiling and signage panel highlights the company’s brand and a fresh modern direction. The use of double glazing with decorative film to adjacent servery provides necessary acoustic privacy off the reception but also a connection to the multi use space and access to light and external views.
The Use of 2 operable walls to the breakout allows the large space to be converted and used in numerous ways allowing staff to access the servery at the same time as various meetings that can occur.
To lift the atmosphere to the open plan environment this was achieved via use of IRi’s branding colour palette employed on feature walls to offices, their doors and slatted feature corner screens as well as in the open casual meeting lounge pods in its furniture and vibrant pixelated carpet tiles, providing a stimulating and refreshing break between desking and departments.
The meeting rooms around the buildings core and off reception were also employed as a feature by theming each meeting room after an IRi international office location. To create a unique point of difference with a touch of global flavour and a hint of funky quirkiness, bright large scale wall vinyls of iconic city sights and architecture were installed. Different stylised decorative pendant fittings and table base designs were used in each meeting room as a full door graphic applied to the doors to conjure up an eye catching snap shot of that city or global destination.
