First United wanted to utilize the cool architectural elements that the building offered. To create some quiet space for staff, while without having to undergo major renovations in the building, hotelling stations and phone booths were perfect solutions. These options are movable, giving First United the flexibility to easily reconfigure their workspace layout in their new shelter.
Constructed in 1908, the two-storey property was the former home of Canada Bank of Japan before World War II. The building was transformed into a contemporary, charming space in 2008, boasting high ceilings, concrete walls, wood beams and a large vault storage in the middle. To keep the original look and feel of the building, CDI Spaces designers worked together with contractors to position the furniture around the existing infrastructure, making it a part of the whole workspace design.

To create a cozy ambiance, the orange tone of the wood and accent chairs paired with the pastel colours of the sofa gave the overall space a warm, welcoming and contemporary feel.
