Newswire office interior

CNW crfigure3 designed this newswire's office located at one of the top floors of WaterPark Place. The reception area features a copper screen that wraps as a floating ceiling into the divider screen between the board room and the reception desk. The design draws inspiration from the ticker tape which were used to carry digital messages prior to computers. Eventscape helped turn this vision into the impressively warm and organic element that envelops visitors as they enter the space. Being on such a high floor facing the lake grants breathtaking views inside the alluring board room where one is always inspired by our beautiful waterfront off in the distance. Custom designed environmental graphics were used to inspire and communicate the corporate value.
