The office’s material palette is a strategic interplay of new and old: white and pops of colour are introduced through graphics, seating and signage, in contrast to the neutral palette of the historic textured red brick walls, aged wood plank ceilings, newly installed honey-blonde maple floors, and darkened rough steel columns and beams.
According to principal Heather Dubbeldam, “The design of Azure’s new office preserves and accentuates the factory’s original character, instilling an authenticity to the space by revealing its past.”
