The main focus with Standard Bank Auditorium space was to think about those times before, after and between the keynote address. The design solution were to create a space that ensured that

in-between time is not wasted, while allowing for various needed functions. A combination of a coffee bar, booths, couches, stools, and cafe seating promotes accidental meetings and productive collisions between colleagues. 

The aesthetics aligns with the general aesthetic developed for Standard Bank over several projects whilst embellishing it with a more local flavour from the region. The local flavour informed decisions regarding materiality, colour and as far as possible local makers and artists for furniture and art installations.
