Fitting Out ISF's Office for Collaborative Working
K2 Space was approached by the International Security Forum (ISF) to create a new hybrid working environment and integrate their new brand identity into the office design. The primary goal was to deliver a collaborative workspace that was flexible and modern while reflecting the new brand identity.
A Striking Brand Identity
To achieve this, K2 Space implemented several design changes, including new signage and branded manifestations along the glass panels. The reception area was given an immediate impact with a striking ISF logo in aluminum cast lettering, sitting boldly against a patterned wood wall. Illuminated by natural white light directional spotlights, the area is warm and inviting with grey cushioned sofas, timber style flooring, and a feature lamp in the corner.
Using Natural Light
The collaborative area was designed to maximize natural light while providing a flexible, hybrid working environment in line with the new post-covid working conditions. A high beam table with dual-tone seating is at the center of the area, illuminated by an elegant lighting rail lamp made of handspun aluminum.
Acoustics and Noise Reduction
ISF’s live podcasts required a room with a high level of acoustics and noise reduction. We designed an acoustic broadcasting room with acoustic paneling and double-glazed fronts, significantly improving the acoustic rating of the room. The room also features an “on air” sign to indicate when broadcasts are taking place, and blinds provide a layer of privacy.
Revitalising ISF's brand identity
Our team successfully revitalised the ISF’s brand identity by integrating it into the office design while creating a collaborative workspace that reflects modern working conditions. The new fit-out provided staff with flexible, hybrid working areas and a dynamic podcasting room, all while maintaining a consistent design aesthetic. The end result was a modern and flexible workspace that exceeded the client’s expectations.
