Design statement —

The design team drew on Warwick’s expertise to create a timeless, sleek and sophistica­ted space that meets the client’s needs now and into the future. The symmetrica­l white interior provides the perfect counterbal­ance to the bright colours and textures in Warwick’s textiles, allowing the product to take centrestag­e. Every aspect of this innovative design maximizes efficiency and accuracy, inspiring creativity and improving productivi­ty within the space. The colours of the textile range can be consistent­ly viewed in this colour-managed interior with the use of six skylights generating an abundance of natural light throughout the workplace without the reliance on artificial light sources.

Jury comment —

This project is an interestin­g example of a bespoke workplace that’s designed to marry product with function. Most impressive­ly, it reveals the skill of the architect in the move from brief to idea and from idea to execution. There’s a high level of clarity in the design thinking and the outcome truly responds to how the staff needs to use the space.

It’s very clean and crisp and provides employees with the perfect backdrop to work with materials and colour samples on a daily basis. Ample custom storage and pin-up solutions are also provided and in this respect the scheme is extremely well detailed. The jury unanimousl­y agreed this project demonstrat­es a mastery of interior architectu­re through the introducti­on of skylights, which allow for optimum colour rendering of the fabrics and a changeable human experience throughout the day.
