Walking into Due Point, your first impression is the raw stone dominating the entrance with clean static lines, with offsets of white and greys. Taking into account the seriousness of their business, Due Point gave us the mandate of an office space that communicated reliability, connection and strength.
“A neutral palette gave us the base to expand from, glass provided the necessary surface to reflect the design and witness the evolving business dealings happening in the area. Transparency was key, with the line between the areas obscured by using various mullion details and tinted film” explains JP.
White and black contrast is a recurring theme throughout the Due Point offices, with suggestive colour accents warming up the space. Clean asymmetric lines, guide you and follow you throughout. It was important that raw materials such as walnut and leather were brought into the space to still offer comfort and reassurance to visitors and stakeholders.
Clean lines and materials in contrast to the wood and leather, suggest clear direction - with the combination reiterating the evolution of their brand and the financial services industry.
