Bryte Insurance Company Limited is Southern Africa’s premier, proactive business risk specialist.

The Brief

An evolution of Bryte’s workplace needs in response to the changing dynamics brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, emphasising a new hybrid working policy and a focus on employee wellness.

Conduit Interior’s long-standing relationship with Bryte Insurance led to us delivering a series of transformative projects for them across three major centres in South Africa, with their flagship head office in Rosebank being the most recent project.

One of the key aspects that sets these projects apart was crafting unique environments for each location while maintaining a cohesive interior brand identity for Bryte Insurance. Whether it was the sophisticated and corporate ambiance of the Gauteng head office or the colourful and playful design of the Umhlanga office.

The selection of colours, materials, and textures also played a crucial role in achieving the desired aesthetic for the Bryte office spaces. Leveraging Bryte’s well-established brand identity, Conduit Interior expertly created inviting reception areas and collaborative workspaces that seamlessly integrated with the company’s ethos.

We believe that interior branding is not the literal interpretation of a company’s logo and brand colours into their space. The space itself becomes part of the brand by positively reinforcing and encouraging the culture of the workforce. The workspace is designed to encourage behaviours that are consistent with the brand.

Bryte has a beautiful, well established brand identify and this was an excellent starting point for us to interpret and build on. It lends itself perfectly to multi layering of finishes and textures which is right up our alley.

Conduit Interior’s design philosophy starts with placing the client at the core of the design process. By tailoring each environment to suit the client’s specific needs and brand identity, we ensure that every space is a true reflection of the client’s vision and functionality requirements.

For each of the Bryte Insurance projects completed over the course of the last decade, the standout design features include the striking receptions, breakout areas, and vibrant cafes that serve as social hubs within the office spaces.

Our expertise flourishes when we’re tasked with creating innovative and functional workspaces that prioritise employee well-being and organisational success.

Bryte’s workplaces need to support their new hybrid work policy. Globally, research has shown that the top three things employees want from the office are all productivity related: To collaborate with others effectively; easier access to tools and resources; and the ability to focus.

Taking the time to understanding the complexity of Bryte’s organisational structure and unique requirements across different locations, we were able to provide clever solutions through smart space optimisation whilst keeping a keen focus on promoting culture, social interactions, and productivity within the workplace.

It’s often what is not immediately apparent that we take the most pride in, in particular we measure success against the flows and usability of each completed space. With a team of 800 making use of their offices, it was critical that we ensured that all of Bryte’s operational needs were not only met but exceeded.

We have had a business relationship with Grant Johnson for more than 15 years and dealing with Conduit Interior has been truly exceptional since the beginning.

Our corporate identity and consistency across our multiple offices is extremely important and Conduit Interior have always ensured that this is filtered through to any aspects of all projects. Great attention to detail and their creative is always unique and dynamic and feedback on completed projects from both internal and external stakeholders continue to attest to this. Grant and his team set a very high standard for themselves and their attention to detail is exemplary.

I can highly recommend Conduit Interiors without hesitation on any design, consulting, and project management work.
