As part of a renovation and expansion of the headquarters for a design and engineering company in the medical devices industry, the pavilions serve as informal collaboration spaces within a large open office. Designed with SJET, in collaboration with Reverse Architecture, the two interior pavilions are intended as iconic anchors within the office, linking the first and second levels on the one hand, and serving to mediate between the 'working' space and the 'eating' space on the other. With two team meeting rooms in each pavilion, these semi-private spaces will be the primary nodes for collaboration. Consequently they will need to promote the kind of creative and intellectual stimulus necessary for a high level of design, research and product development. The pavilions will act as key geographic features, serving as points of departure as well as arrival. They carry a distinct 'weight', therefore, in providing a diverse range of important functions.
