The atrium street is the social hub of the building with retail units, 9 restaurants, an auditorium and multifunctional space, cash points and break out seating areas. The space also doubles up as a venue for product launches or events

Social collision zones on the atrium bridges link floor plates on either side of the atrium. Tea stations, print rooms and recycle areas are located here

Each floor is colour themed to aide legibility

Ceiling consoles contain low energy lighting, reflected by the concrete slab onto work surfaces for soft even lighting levels

A standard 1600 x 800 mm desk size is used throughout to facilitate efficient relocation. Screen heights are set at 1350 mm an appropriate height to dampen noise and provide an open environment.
