The combination of creativity, proactive attitude, and the overall concept meant that Conduit Interior were the clear choice for our project. From the moment the project began, they exhibited a wealth of knowledge, and exceptional organisational skills and professionalism.
Korbitec, a prominent player in the SA property industry, is home to several leading real estate software development brands.
The interior design brief was to “refresh and refurb” the existing communal staff break-out areas, without undertaking any major construction work. These “Third Places” act as a leveler and bring together the brilliant minds from various developer teams into one neutral territory, and the design was required to enhance this.
Conduit Interior’s design enables staff to feel encouraged to share ideas and experiences by providing a palette of spaces to suit all types of interactions. It creates a playful, relaxed mood and encourages a stream of regulars to engage in conversation.
A key design feature is the use of shards of striking colour on the walls, floors and ceilings. Although seemingly random when first encountered, they align perfectly to create Korbitec’s “K” logo when the viewer walks over a designated spot. This cost-effective feature created a buzz of excitement among staff from all levels who queued up to take a cellphone snap from the given spot, further encouraging interaction within the space from day-one.
