The Union Swiss Office Interior by Inhouse Brand Architects

Union Swiss, the maker and global marketer of “bio-oil” required a completely Eco-friendly office environment that allowed for their expanding growth, a space which illustrated their funky fresh work ethic whilst “living the green life”. A logistical challenge:- we demolished, core drilled, constructed and fitted out floor by floor whilst maintaining the air of mystery (Not one employee saw a glimpse of what was happening in the offices until the final unveiling)

The “green”brief fulfilled every design aspect, from sustainable bamboo joinery pieces and a self sufficient bamboo garden to low energy consuming Led lighting and a mechanical skylight allowing natural air flow . No drywalls were used in the open plan office area:-Partitions were created from joinery pieces and glass, enhancing spatial connectivity and a familial feel. The polished entrance with spiral staircase is contrasted with the unapologetic parking lot creating a visual impact on entrance, alerting the client they are about to enter something special.

The love was in the detail for this project from custom made letter in-trays, quirky specialised clocks to implementing the ‘bio-oil’ box barcode as the signature vinyl application to all glazing work- thus reaffirming that the Union Swiss brand breathes subtly and easily in their new ‘green’ home.
