Noisebox Solution

With no challenge too big nor too complicated for Noisebox, our team launched itself head-on into the creative process, collaborating with some of the GenisisCare professionals. The results are nothing short of amazing.

The old grain storage silos, which consist of  2 towers with 3 levels of offices in each, have been transformed into a fully fuctional and creative office environment for GenesisCare to do their amazing work.

The heritage constraints and the circular nature of the structure provided limitations, for cable paths and to the long established AV model (which would normally see all the AV equipment located in one, climate controlled room, with resourses being shared across multiple rooms), so we had to think outside the square (or the round, as it were ;)).

These constraints have lead to some very creative thinking, which in turn, has resulted in, one of the most aesthetically pleasing commercial spaces we’ve ever had the pleasure to be involved in.

The Boardroom was essentially a circular room  with no obvious or functional orientation. Within our design development process and in consultation with the designers a horseshoe table was approved which set the layout for the room’s orientation. The Boardroom supports the executive arm of the business encorporating sophisitacated  technologies within this working environment. The AV facilities include presentations to board members and executive staff, interactive collaborations and document discussions using three 65 inch interactive screens.  VC solutions include the Polycom Voice tracking Eagle Eye Director supported by in-table retractable microphones.Integration is managed by AMX along with room booking and resource management.
