Qeerad is an Angel Investment firm that assists and facilitates budding entrepreneurs materialise their business proposals (and dreams!). This firm goes beyond capitals and provides coaching, market insight and even a venue for their clients to hold presentations. Our goal with this design was to create an environment that was conducive for start-up businesses and ventures to thrive yet playful to reflect the youthfulness and creativity of the company and its clients.
The look of a modern-day CEO’s office – open, approachable, and trendy!
The herringbone design of the carpet tiles offset by the vinyl wood tile are laid out at an angle and its use is not limited to the floors alone.
The staff workspace is organised as a communal work area and is the central space in the office layout. The decision to use flexible conduits to house wiring is to accommodate future changes to the layout as needed by the client. A laminate timber arch outlines the entrance to the CEO’s office from the staff work station.
An intricate partition separates the staff workspace from the finance department. Reflected in its design are geometric patterns synonymous to Islamic architecture
The function of this nook in not bound to a fixed programme but multiplies as a break out space for small group discussions, a dining area, venue for ad hoc meetings or a leisurely hangout at the end of the day. The furniture seen here is provided by ARDKrate.
The media room, used for in house and public presentations that is, for Qeerad clients to house their presentations to potential investors. The wall functions as a projector screen whereas the rest of the walls are painted with IdeaPaint which provides a large writeable space allowing for creativity to flow where the unconventional becomes the standard.
Clusters of Edison lights create a warm and inviting atmosphere. One of the distinct features in this space is the timber cladding on the walls which is reclaimed wood from wall panels of old Kampung houses in Kuala Selangor. Disclaimer: no villagers or villages were harmed in the process of beautifying this space!
The glass wall keeps the layout open and allows for daylight to stream in. Alternatively, the inclusion of roller blinds, allows for privacy when needed.
A cosy waiting area at the entrance. Also seen here is the laminate timber arch which is replicated in the entrances to the CEO’s office and media room to tie the design together with a sense of continuity.
This is the meeting room. The meeting table and pendant light fixtures are again made by ARDKrate. All we can say is, this room is ooozing out creativity !.
