The designers had previously worked on three other projects for the client but this was their first ground-up project for them. They sought to bring economy, relevance to business,  memorable images/personality and expandability to the project.

The client required an equipment showroom, two video conference rooms, a sales area, management offices, a secure inventory area and technical support area for machine repair.  The building was to allow for expandability and incorporate the signature recycled “paper wall” into the project.
