The project entailed the upgrade of the under-utilised employee canteen on the ground floor of the Standard Bank head office in Rosebank. The lobby were turned into a place focused on people interactions, both internally and externally.The overarching strategy that guided the design is the under-standing that Workplace is becoming the new retail, which subscribes to the need for the workplace environment to be more than just office and desk design, but is about providing great work experiences supported through a great environment. 

The space and services provided were designed around the changing needs of users through the day, i.e. from morning coffee to lunch to after works drinks, without these being segmented. These spaces includes casual dining, formal private dining, a grab ’n go deli and a fully licensed bar for after work drinks.
