The unique feature of the overall design is the usage of brand colours in different ways as the design theme. A luxurious or classy effect to the whole office has brought by using veneer throughout & by maintaining the same or similar finish to have a sense of rhythm. When we talk about the planning approach, The meeting cluster in the island concept being the main attraction gave us an opportunity to make the curved glass edges for the rooms to have a sense of flow.
All workstations are been placed towards the external glazing side to have maximum natural light which has been proved to increase the efficiency or productivity of the employee working in the office. The workstation area also includes collaboration spaces as well to break the monotony & it acts as a refreshment zone or informal discussion zone with colourful design &greenery to change the mood.

The panels are used as a suspended ceiling with unique designs, Acoustic light fixtures are used in all meeting spaces which acts as a design element as well as serves the purpose. Panellingon partitions are done with a combination of triangular-shaped natural wooden panel & ACP panels including pop-up colours. Another major attraction of the office is the artwork & graphics highlighting branding & the office location being Hyderabad.
