We mirrored the Open Text values of innovation, creativity and collaboration in their new space. They wanted the offices to convey a world class company with a touch of African scenery and culture. They wanted their interior to represent the company’s personality through a corporate, sleek but understated design.The brief was to create a workspace which allowed greater interaction between staff. We did this by creating an open plan layout with fixed workstations as well as height adjustable meeting spaces in between to allow for sitting or standing work.We introduced a variety of meeting and breakaway areas away from their open plan focused space, from a curved glass media scape room, to a brainstorm room, to the quiet phone booths, or the one-on-one meeting pods.The client facing areas were designed around the client experience. The spaces are inviting, spacious and contemporary. They include the reception waiting area (without a receptionist), a social hub area and hospitality corridor.
