Design Practice Location:
Cedar White Bradley (CWB), a regional legal services consultancy, employed Wanders Wagner Architects for the design of its new UAE head office. Located on the 47th floor of the Burj Al Salam Tower, CWB was looking to fit out the 1,125-square-metre full-floor office space for 55 employees. The client requested a spacious, representational reception area, a large café/canteen, and multifunctional breakout areas. The workspace was to be divided into open area with 26 workstations, 10 closed shared offices, nine managerial offices, as well as several meeting rooms. In addition to the inclusion of a large ‘green wall’, a particular design driver was the owner’s wish to have the entire office balanced to the principles of Feng Shui for positive energy.
