Design Award (Interior), Honourable Mention (Industrial)
This project demonstrates a new conception of clean industrial space. The atrium, as a dynamic space with visibility and accessibility from all other spaces, is the highlight of the project. It encourages collaboration and interaction between different workers.
What is impressive is how the architects worked closely with the clients to achieve a manifestation of their brand and philosophy.
The planning of the building is more conventional while the judges felt that the architectural expression is a missed opportunity to project corporate identity.
Recognising the success of the atrium space and its importance in the project, the judges decided to award it in the Interior category instead while giving it an Honourable Mention in the Industrial category.
