wall’, where colleagues would grow their own plants from cuttings, moving them to the main working areas once matured.


Throughout, natural materials, colours and biophilic elements were chosen to encourage well-being, but when it came to supplier choices, although they went through the LEED process and are going for Gold certification, what was most important for the client was the social and environmental impact. ‘We had to put together a presentation to actually really investigate into those supply chains,’ Poerwantoro explains. ‘So we didn’t just accept a piece of certification, we needed to really understand what that supply chain was for each of the companies… and in some cases they


would rather go with a rug company that was hiring women that were from disadvantaged backgrounds, over a rug company that had LEED certification.’


The client has plans to share these stories behind these design choices with the staff to help them feel proud of their ofice space – perhaps with a system of plaques. The attention to detail throughout could be considered ‘trivial’, Poerwantoro comments, yet she believes the choices the client made were never about cost saving or eficiency, but ‘it was really about getting the most out of [the staff] as people’.


The resulting workplace delighted OSF staff as soon as they saw it, and has also


impressed OSF teams across the globe – in Jordan, Nairobi, Berlin, New York and Rio de Janeiro – the ofices of which tp bennett is also working on.


The project’s impact might also be measured by its effect on the design team. Mariachiara Dal Pozzo, senior interior designer for tp bennett says, ‘We’ve never had clients like them. We pushed each other... [us] with our design, yes, but they were pushing us with ideas of what they needed.’ Davies shared a similar sentiment, saying that this project really pushed the boundaries in how tp bennett designs for sustainability and mental health in the ofice – and foresees a significant impact on tp bennett’s work going forward.
