Canon Canada’s new headquarters envisioned balancing privacy and collegiality in an open and serene environment. The new LEED Gold building would showcase Canon’s brand values of clarity, precision, and technological elegance while providing employees with a reliable and elegant work environment.
POI distinguished itself in its ability to demonstrate a versatile solution that could adapt to a changing environment in a clean and beautiful way. Lowering the panels and using lighter colours for finishes reinforced openness and connectivity, and a centralized filing system reduced paper storage to create efficiencies at individual work areas. Bright and colourful furniture was introduced to invite staff to meet in more informal and collaborative settings.
POI’s AV integration services received high accolades by the designer for its attention to detail, most prominently, cable management which reflected the same care and precision that Canon applies to its products. POI worked closely with Moriyama & Teshima to complete the furniture plan and meet the installation timelines.
