The office spanned three floors and included various facilities like a gym, wellness area, prayer room, client-facing spaces, an employee restaurant, and a 175-seat auditorium. Area, a renowned design and fit-out company, was entrusted with this transformative project. Synergy Creativ was brought on board to provide innovative lighting solutions that would enhance the aesthetics and functionality of this cutting-edge workspace.
