Tech firm Collins Aerospace recently hired architecture and interior design firm ID21 to design its new office in Singapore.
“The core inspiration for this new office design is a variety of ‘aircraft hangars’ that serve as different work areas for staff to land for formal and informal meetings or to focus on their work. It is an open airfield with Similar to an airplane’s turbine engine, each team area is designed to act as a “propeller” for department heads to spearhead collaboration and creativity.
Built on the idea of space optimization for employee well-being, our designs focus on maximizing daylight and smooth human flow. We designed User Routes to connect different spaces that cater to different needs, from quiet work to collaboration and meetings. Fostering cross-departmental synergies was also a key objective, achieved through open and semi-enclosed collaboration zones dedicated to informal touchdown meetings.
Sustainability was prioritized indoors with moss walls and greenery such as planters along the sidewalks. Energy efficiency was ensured through lux calculations and the use of sustainably sourced furnishings, textures and finishes. Collins Aerospace’s brand identity is clearly visible through the use of bold environmental graphic walls.
Collins Aerospace is an energetic brand with movement at its core, embodied in a dynamic work environment. The new floorplate incorporates various work environments such as fixed and hot desks, concentration and collaboration zones to help employees perform at their best. “
