"A well-orchestrated collage" is how the jury described these offices for a post-production editing firm serving advertising agencies world wide. The design incorporates the latest production technology within an open plan that emphasizes a more home-like feel for the hardworking, creative clients.

The office is infused with a translucent quality that fosters interaction by exposing the activity within. This focus is most apparent in the "great hall" adjacent to the reception area where staff and clients meet in a comfortable setting. Moving away from this central gathering place, sliding screens modulate visual and audio privacy as needed.

The jury also appreciated the deference to the existing structure and the immaculate detailing of the interior architecture.
