The concept for the Georgian Partners office in Toronto, Ontario was to create an inviting environment that would allow for future growth of the company while maintaining its existing culture. The design of the office focuses on the potential for space to adapt and suit a variety of functions. Employees have access to both private and touch-down offices that can at times double as small meeting rooms, while the rest of the space is reserved for a variety of meeting environments that range from public to private.
A large oval boardroom acts as a beacon upon entering, surrounded by the signage of all of their clients for users to see as they move through the space. The material palette draws cues from a timeless yet transitional approach, where solid materials are applied in contemporary ways that will age with the space and last for years to come. Amidst this material palette, the space will use a monochromatic colour scheme with hints of the company’s signature blue accenting throughout. Glass enclosures contribute to the openness of the space as well as drawing light deeper into the building. Aged brass and warm metals add an element of texture and sophistication, showcasing refined approaches to design.
