Taking inspiration from the movement and fluidity in Tag’s logo animation, we developed a concept called the ‘wave wall’, where the organic strokes strategically divide the floor plates horizontally into two distinct zones: a dark zone at the rear side of the building with black finishes, minimal dim lighting, and no natural light; and a light zone at front of the building, with amble windows and natural light. The corrugation of the wall doubly iterates the wave concept, as it weaves its way through the space.

The shape and size of each side of the wall was dictated by the number of desks required in each section, as well to incorporate existing rooms, resulting in an efficient space shaped entirely by function. The flow of the wall enabled us to cleverly integrate nooks of spaces, such as breakout spaces or a quiet space to take calls.

One side of the wall was kept open to expose the metal stud work, sprayed black in the dark zones, reflecting that the nature of creativity and innovation is a constant work in progress, never finished or complete, but always evolving.
