Spanning two floors in Capital Square Tower 2
BDO’s new workplace crafts an organic, interconnected and diversified sensibility to support the public accounting firm and its people. Drawing on elements of Satoshi Kanazawa’s ‘Savanna Principle,’ the workplace offers spaces of privacy, pause or quietness, considered moments of refuge, and spaces of collaboration and connection.
BDO’s striking reception, finished with perforated mirror ceilings, creates a bold impression on arrival. Orluna Suri downlights with black, low glare baffles are custom mounted above the feature ceiling, providing soft general illumination while maintaining an uninterrupted ceiling plane. A dramatic, rippled-mirror reception desk is offset by Louis Poulsen NJP task lamps, providing functional task lighting in a sculptural housing.
The adjacent business lounge combines diffuse and accent lighting to create a layered lighting effect. Modular Lighting Shellby fittings create soft general illuminance, while Modular Lighting Hollow fittings accent the room’s high level joinery. A rebated B4 S15 LED strip gently illuminates the kitchenette, offering effective task lighting while enhancing the textured finish of the stone. A bespoke, B4 pendant illuminates the stair and circular void beyond, creating a tiered, vertical arrangement of lights that visually link the two levels. The pendant creates a 360-degree diffuse glow to the building’s core, highlighting its striking double-height volume, curved forms and battened stair detailing.
