Imperial Tobacco Canada office

The aim of this project was to regroup the employees of Imperial Tobacco’s headquarters on two levels only (total area of 50,000 sq. ft.), instead of four previously, and to rejuvenate the corporate image by making it more open and modern. To achieve this, the space design and layout were important tools to facilitate the necessary changes to the existing workplace culture. It was crucial to create a modern work environment that would foster creativity, innovation and dynamism. The employees greatly enjoyed the predominantly natural lighting and the unique design, including some special elements such as the living green wall.
