The design approach was to maximise the great location, views, and natural light to create an interior that is striking and a first for Cork. A workspace that is glamorous, eccentric and a one-of-a-kind experience. The principles of the contemporary urban design was, derived from the Downtown New York vibe, which is bohemian in style, slightly funky and nonchalant. A mid-century modern colour palette is seen throughout the design, which comprises of earthy natural tones like muted greens, yellow and tan, which is energized by punchy accent colours of olive greens, navy blue and wine/berry.
