Afro-futuristic interpretations for an African workspace
PwC, a global consulting firm partnered with Spacefinish to create a unique space where clients could come to experience and immerse themselves in their innovative tech solutions. PwC wanted the space to immediately be recognized as a tech space in Africa and for visitors to leave the space with a piece of the continent in their hearts and an understanding of the quality of solutions PwC is dedicated to providing.
Size: 600 square meter
Completion Date: 2019
Scope: Design Build
Creating a space that showcases PwC’s solutions.
The Demo Lab was designed for visitors to experience PwC’s innovative solutions in action. We included an enclosed Augmented Reality room designed to give the best Augmented Reality experience and custom-designed QR code functionality engraved in the floors, where visitors can trigger to get a digital experience via their Augmented Reality headgear.
One of the innovative feats to come out of Africa is the ideographic script Nsibidi, comprising of nearly a thousand symbols, Nsibidi originated from Southeastern Nigeria and was used as a means to effectively communicate the human condition across ethnicities. We modified the Nsibidi script and created a sister script called Nwabidi (meaning the offspring of Bidi). This script can be found around the Experience Centre used to express some of PwC’s work ethics such as “work together” and “act with integrity”.
Tailoring the space to how PwC works.
Insights gained from our qualitative and quantitative research with PwC showed that their preferred way of working is together. To encourage this, we designed the Infinity Workstations which is a continuous stretch of workstation surface with no divider barriers.
"Spacefinish understood our vision for the space from the start and they were able to bring it to life flawlessly. We have no hesitation in recommending Spacefinish to others."
