We envisioned a place that sparks imagination, innovation and enables integration of all aspects of life.
When presented with the opportunity to design a new office from the ground up, we thought about how our vision and core values could be translated into a design concept that goes beyond function—a place where imagination and creativity come alive, an integrated place where people feel at home, a place that is truly designed from the inside out.
We believe the real purpose of our work involves challenging imagination, creating inspiration and developing integration.
We began the design process by dreaming of the kind of space we wanted and why (the purpose), and then uncovering the underlying needs of the people who now call this office space—also known as Net Singapore—home. This process may sound familiar to some of our clients; we believe in walking the talk, and applied the same rigorous process of translating the intangible (vision, values) into the tangible (the new office).
We needed a space that integrates areas that matter most—work, family, health, spirituality, learning, and community.
Ultimately, we distilled the needs down to the following purposes:
Work & Collaboration: Creative and open office spaces. Writable walls. Customizable spaces for different needs.
Learning & Development: Space that develops character through values-based content
Community: Open event space to host community events that aim to foster creativity and encourage genuine connection; space for families and children
We wanted this to be a co-working space with other organizations, which share similar visions and values.
Net Singapore is part of the broader, global Net Collective.
