The workspace for ambience was a playful yet carefully considered use of natural light, shadow and colour mixed with artificial light. The concept weaved ambience’s light-hearted branding & tone throughout and was based on creating ‘a workspace where people want to work’.

The creative execution was centred around optical prisms, which can break light into its constituent spectral colours. This phenomenon was creatively executed through the use of lighting, colour and angular lines that visually connect walls, floors and ceilings.  

It is designed to give varied visual stimulation at different times of the day, from mesmerizing natural sunlight, to mind-bending prism effects and arresting backlit colour gradients, with colours becoming denser and shadows more dynamic – depending on time. In fact, the workspace literally changes colour and light at every minute of the day. 

This layered and compelling design is perceived differently from every direction, allowing visual connections throughout and altering perceptions of depth and range. 

Working hand-in-hand with the dichroic film is the huge lighting feature; a custom-design backlit double layered acoustic panel in the ceiling. This was created to provide mood-calming and smooth illumination for staff, and to not clutter or confine the space with messy suspended fixtures. And it creates track-stopping and awe-inspiring moment whenever visitors or staff enter the space for the first time.

The project is almost like a playground or labyrinth with charms and illuminated surprises around every corner. There are more intimate zones scattered throughout, defined by bright pastel colours and glazed panels with a dichroic window film. 

Detail and decication was king. All downlights were custom painted to live harmoniously in their allocated colour zone and linear LED extrusion was painstakingly assessed to be placed for greatest effect and interaction with dichroic and seating arrangements. 

The result is a bold, highly visually, stimulating and vivacious workspace that inspires and impresses throughout the working day. It’s audacious nature is one that has met with wonder from staff, clients and visitors alike.
