Repurposing the building for people at work
In a building originally designed for machines, the team‘s focus was to help Dyson reinvent it for people.
In doing so, it was essential to have a functional and inspiring space – a space to support the research, development and operations teams to work, meet and collaborate.
At the heart of this Singapore office design for Dyson is the former Turbine Hall – a dramatic four-storey industrial space.
Inspired by the quadrangles of academic campuses, this central space serves as a circulation hub, connecting all areas – an inner retreat for agile working and a community space for people to meet and connect.
On entering the Turbine Hall, people are greeted by a dynamic feature staircase.
This is the functional spine of the workplace, linking all four floors.
The staircase supports connection between departments and activates circulation in the busy, central Turbine Hall.
At the other end, adjacent to the Work Café, is the Amphitheatre – this is a destination for shared experiences, encouraging communication, experimentation and constant learning.
