TECHNICAL DESIGN TEAM
LIGHTING SOLUTION EXPLORATIONS
Using Kitchen utensils, other metal vessels to make lights. These lights could act as space fillers. The idea is to have lighting solutions which are reasonable.
The Primary workstations have bright white light. White light helps in being alert and awake while working. The secondary seating and some liesure zones have warm white(subtle yellow) lighting so as to retire to these comfortably lit zones.
ELEMENTS OF INTERACTION IN THE SPACE
1. Appreciation Bell : The use of the bell is for marking the events in the working of individual teams that makes difference to the company. The ringing of the bell marks an announcement for everyone to know about that major development and applaud the team/individual for their efforts.
2. Timeline : Stories are important and better when shared. The timeline of the company runs down the space into the meeting room.
3. Brainstorming zones: Each team has a wall (with black board and white board) dedicated to all group discussions and brainstorming sessions. These come in line with the thought of giving each team more space to think collectively.
