Billed as a 21st century media office, this project was an exploration into an interactive public threshold for the country's largest multi-media and publications group. The components of the project were a publicly accessible media centre, a publicly visible news room for the group's largest local daily newspaper and a security foyer for access to the other subsidiary business located within their existing skyscraper head office. The project made extensive use of interactive electronic terminals and display panels set in a sleek yet "zen-calm" environment which acts as a counterpoise to the potential information overload on display.
