Located in a totally banal, 1970’s office building in downtown Calgary, the interior office space was “colonized” in the same way the Romans founded their “castrum”. The metaphor is effectively extended throughout the design through the creation of a hierarchy of spaces, clear and wide circulation “roads”, “plazas” for meetings and, at the heart of the complex, a cafeteria that is like a modern-day “forum”,.
