THE CHALLENGE

Symantec’s Toronto location needed to be revived to meet the latest workplace guidelines and emulate the company’s mission-driven culture. We strategically designed interactive areas to take advantage of the large windows and views while providing for privacy and focus in the workplace. The project needed to be built out in two phases to allow employees to continue to work as the renovation took place.

THE SOLUTION

We layered materials and graphic elements onto brand guidelines to reflect Toronto’s unique energy and style. Brand colors were paired with a strong interiors palette to evoke an urban, industrial atmosphere. Custom wallpaper patterns pay homage to local architecture and weave local imagery, company values and iconography throughout the space. All of these elements came together to provide brand continuity and rationality that worked holistically across both construction phases.
