On plan this is one of those projects, that when viewed in 2D, seems rather dull. There’s some open plan space, a few meeting rooms and a staff tea point. However, add the the Merck brand and the design aesthetic for these new offices suddenly becomes rather bright.
Their unique culture is expressed through the Merck brand personality. It shines through in their distinct look and feel, they are bold and fresh and not afraid to go against the grain (or use a HUGE amount of colour).
It’s not often that we struggle with using a bright, bold palette…this project however was a challenge and had us worried at moments that the space might look like a rainbow had exploded on it. Thankfully, working alongside the Merck branding team we not only managed to stamp the company brand onto the office, but we think we also achieved a rather fun work environment.
