This compact tenancy was quite unique, with a challenging angled façade that reduced usable space. Accordingly. MODE’s strategy was to utilise this angle as a feature, in the layout of the carpet, reception desk and its bounding wall and feature ceiling over.

A muted, refined palette of white, charcoal and natural timber was incorporated to enhance the feeling of size, and compliment the beautiful natural surroundings externally. A green wall takes pride of place behind the reception counter, further drawing on this theme. Timber battens frame the reception desk and green wall, and continue down the central corridor, drawing the eye to the offices beyond. This feature is further enhanced through the careful use of flush recessed down lighting and vertical mirrored panelling. The overall design creates a working environment that is stimulating and organised, whilst simultaneously complementing rather than competing with its picturesque surrounds; the primary reason for locating the office in Cullen Bay.
