The interior had to reflect Swiss sophistication without being opulent. The layout and design of their Ozmik House offices needed to generate a socially-accommodating, integrated work environment that encourages interaction between all building occupants and bridges the cultural differences between its tenants and visitors. The brief was complicated by the available space being spread over two levels without an apparent link. A dedicated lightweight staircase was introduced to improve collaboration and interaction. The interior focuses on functionality and features a neutral palette against which Swiss artwork is highlighted. Moveable partitions create a flexible workspace, whilst natural light is optimised through the use of glass. The architecture of Ozmik House declares that it is the user who animates a building and defines its identity. Visitors express a sense of comfort and specifically comment on the pleasant spatial experience. Tenants further express a sense of pride and ownership; a result of continuous user participation in the design and construction process.
