This is the office space of Cobalt Engineering, the offices are located in Vancouver, which is in British Columbia Canada. The project was completed by Perkins+Will one of the largest architectural firms in the world. The office design was centered around three primary goals – evoke a creative image, foster dynamic collaboration among staff and showcase sustainability through mechanical and electrical design.
The foundation of the design lies in the planning, with offices strategically placed and transparent to maximize site lines across the entire plan. Strategic planning, low panels and transparency maximize vistas throughout entire space taking advantage of the prime water and mountain views. A refresh center blurs the reception/workspace line, welcoming Cobalt’s creative client base. The space is an opportunity for innovative mechanical engineering with each meeting room demonstrating different solutions, coupled with tailored ceiling designs. A focus on daylight harvesting lowers power density and the custom plywood lighting fixture in the receptions speaks to the light and air of Cobalt’s core business.
