C.R. SHAREDALAL & CO.
While designing the interior of a chartered accountant’s office, we worked closely with modular furniture agencies to achieve the desired image for space and level of efficiency. The office premise has been visually opened towards the common areas viz. training space and conference. While use of low height partitions in the work place provide an open vision to the office, the glass partition at the peripheral cabins for the partners have been provided for a clean and open view, maintaining confidentiality and sound absorption requirements. All spaces have been defined amicably conferring with the design requirement.
