The challenge

The challenge was to design an efficient office with improved aesthetics — an office where brainstorming sessions could flourish, innovation foment, and productivity thrive, all in a collaborative setting with their clients.

The brief to us was to make the space unique in the sense that exhibited a badge value of being the best collaborative space to work from. This meant a shift from the stereotypical panels, a shift from the straight partitions that demarcated the general workspace. The floor, ceiling and workstations and chairs had to meet the same.

The results

We demarcated each area based on the collaborative activity it needed to facilitate. There was a huge makeover and facelift in terms of lighting, focusing singularly on comfort and high standards of dynamism. The lighting on top acted as leading lines connecting one from the tertiary areas such as corridors to the primary areas which were the meeting rooms and the secondary areas such as the conference rooms and customer lounge areas.

The customer lounge areas specifically ensured that comfort, spacious seating and auxiliary facilities that enhanced the interiors such as coffee machines, the palette of fabric, and themes of trust, dynamism and integrity was manifested.


Ankura was happy with the outcome. The newly-designed office space reflected the brand promise of Ankura’s highest standards, systems and performance that a client would encounter when they walked in the door. More sales were closed a result. The sales team were proud to invite their clients to discuss their on-going projects and as a result, employee satisfaction was at an all-time high.

"Our clients, their experience, impression about the brand , It all starts from the corporate office and the The way we showcase, the way we maintain, the way we raised our standards of styling and designs at our office. And we required a design Build partner to achieve, The lookout for this ended when we met Rubenius,"
