We knew that the target demographic for the Innovation Centre’s entrepreneur programs were young and looking for a unique work experience. They wanted a comfortable work space that feels more like home. They wanted to be connected at all times, to be empowered to work where and how felt right for them and to be creative through collaborating with others.
By removing the original walls from the floor plan and starting with a clean slate, we were able to start to create a space that addressed these needs. We created concepts within the new plan such as “Idea Alley”, “the Launch Pad” and “Productivity Pods” which would enhance the work experience for both clients of the Innovation as well as the staff working with them.
By allowing natural light to pour into the space, providing choice for clients to decide how to use the space, while promoting collaboration, communication and learning would all offer a much more rewarding work experience. By simply adding glass walls to bring in natural light and visibility, using bright colours to inspire and add interest, and offering multiple places to meet and share ideas to increase collaboration and learning, we were able to transform the existing static space into a place where great minds come to share and grow.
