About the project

The Norton Rose Fulbright office, envisioned and brought to life by Allen Architecture Interiors Design, is a true contender for the Interior Design of the Year – Offices award. Nestled within the iconic ICD Brookfield, this expansive 9,700 sq ft space stands as a testament to our ability to elevate office environments into realms of unparalleled sophistication.

The project started with a thorough understanding of the client’s requirements through comprehensive surveys and insightful interviews with department heads. The task at hand was to harmonize global standards with local sensibilities, all the while adhering to the client’s paramount needs. The resulting design had to marry professional elegance with approachable warmth, creating an environment that was not only functional but also reflective of the brand’s identity.

Allen Architecture Interiors Design design narrative was rooted in an architectural nod to the past while maintaining a contemporary perspective. Drawing inspiration from the Arts and Crafts movement, as well as influences from adjacent eras including Art Deco, our creative canvas was rich with layers of historical significance. This blend of heritage and modernity was further expressed through bespoke ceiling baffles, showcasing a reverence for traditional craftsmanship.

A pivotal principle guiding our design philosophy was the constant evolution of both layout and design. Architecture took precedence as form harmoniously followed function, resulting in a symphony of purpose-driven elements. We introduced subtle yet impactful detailing to soften the inherent linear language, thereby achieving an ambiance of sophisticated comfort.

Contrasting black and white finishes were thoughtfully offset by the welcoming tones of walnut flooring and the inviting textures of warm acoustic paneling. Our focus extended beyond mere aesthetics to prioritize utility, ensuring that the space catered to the diverse needs of a broad clientele. This approach resulted in an environment that seamlessly blended visual appeal with approachability.

Designers selection of materials epitomizes elegance through simplicity. High-quality, unpretentious materials were carefully curated to establish a harmonious coexistence that exemplifies the essence of the space. The juxtaposition of contrasting materials, accompanied by minimal branding, served as a testament to our dedication in striking the perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics.

The challenge posed by compromised ceiling heights was met with innovative design solutions that underscore our commitment to delivering excellence even in the face of limitations.
