KHID Shortlisted for Designer of the Year for the 2020 Workspace Awards
We are honoured to announce we have been shortlisted for Designer of the Year in the 2020 Workspace Awards, for our MAB Corporation project.
The MAB Corporation project has been one of our most notable and inspiring projects to date. Designed to embody the MAB Promise and reflect the community, the refurbishment of the existing headquarters aligns core values with place, people and purpose. Creating a space that not only encourages clients to get involved and feel a part of the MAB Community, but enhancing the culture of its people.
Much more than just a physical aesthetic facelift or redesign, a deep understanding of the MAB culture, needs and processes was essential to creating a design response that captured the company’s ethos.
Central to the design is the MAB Communal area, breakout and flexible multifunction space. A space for the company to come together to collaborate, meet, relax or party. Although a large open area, there are many intimate spaces in which people can escape for focus work or just a breather by themselves without feeling on show.
As a project-based company, a previously divided workstation area was not conducive to the way they worked. By creating flexibility in non-fixed furniture means evolution of project teams could be achieved through simple rearrangement allowing for easy adaptation of the workspace.
