Screens of translucent polycarbonate shape the various program spaces for this model agency: reception, private waiting room, central booking area, executive offices, storage and workspace. A dynamic, eye-popping feature wall using lenticular sheets was designed as the backdrop for a custom card display.  Limited light penetration due to the location of windows on only one end of the long narrow space was the catalyst for the choice of materials and color palette – bright, white, translucent with pops of color to brand the agency. The booking room is only partially visible from the entry allowing the vibrant green back wall, referring to shimmering chic fabric, to make a strong first impression. Support spaces, where images are reviewed on computers, portfolios are reorganized, tear-sheets are catalogued, are located at the rear for privacy and away from the busy booking area.
