Lighting Sets the Mood for Nature-Inspired Government Co-Working Space

[Photo Source: Mark Holleron] HOK Ottawa designed a stunning 9020 sq. ft. human-centric space, with a focus  on nature that enables workers to feel at ease and that adapts to a range of collaborative or individual situations.

What?
When the Government of Canada contemplated developing a co-working concept, they chose Orleans, a suburb of Ottawa, for its pilot project. The intent was to open a convenient and comfortable co-working office space closer-to-home than their current downtown location.

Where?
Orleans, Ontario, Canada

Who?
Architect/Interior Design: HOK Ottawa
Photography: Mark Holleron

When?
September 2019

Key Aspects?
The geometric shape enhances the moss walls and creates a playful first impression as you walk in. A powerful light source softened by a polymer diffusion dome, efficiently illuminates the tables and chairs while remaining gentle on the eye. Two small focus rooms are each illuminated with a Stroke wall-mounted linear Luminaire. Feedback from federal employees has been extremely positive.
