Creating visual interest
The circle was adopted as a central design motif, one that represented continuous and organic movement. Drawn primarily from the company logo, this shape was also derived from the nature of their business in air and sea logistics.
Providing for rest and connection
Showers, restrooms, ample shoe closets and plenty of personal spaces offer opportunities to reset and recharge. A diverse range of areas through the space foster productive meetings, lively discussion and meaningful socialising with colleagues.
We identified a range of sustainable materials, lighting types and live plant selections, all of which contributed to the softer palette and ensured material choice had minimal environmental impact.
Delivering a successful space
This is a modern, thriving workplace that combines movement, calm, connectivity and focus, through informed thinking and functional design. It offers great flexibility and a strong sense of community, to support its users in productive and social contexts.
Each of our projects places trust and relationship building at the core, and the Kuehne+Nagel team was totally engaged throughout the design journey. We encouraged them to think differently and question what they wanted. They were guided by us right through the process, creating a distinctly better outcome that demonstrates the critical importance of mutual respect and understanding in any project.
