HOST – IDEA 2020


Louis Kahn said that awareness of the architectural qualities of a utilitarian building often occurs after it falls into disuse. In this manner, Host was drawn to a derelict cluster of buildings and a vision for a future workplace. The architectural approach was restrained, mindful of the three buildings’ past and quirky nuances. Everything new stands alone and all the functional features are finely detailed elements that pay deference to their history. 
Furnishing is eclectic and relaxed, with thirty-metre workbenches as the centrepiece of a one-team culture.
