Certificate of Excellence
in Architecture (Commercial, Retail or Office)
A boutique office building intended for small businesses, we sought to create an identity that blurs the boundary between work and living, and elevate the mundane day-to-day experience to one that carries a hospitality edge. From a base of stained timber veneers in combination with natural and reconstituted stone, we created a graphic that is part plant veins, part contour, and part fingerprint. Simple gestures taking cues from natural elements, rather than strict geometric repetitions, further enhance the bespoke and relaxed atmosphere not usually seen in the office typology. The result is an identity that feels luxurious and hip, attracting young entrepreneurs and creative businesses alike.
