We are thrilled and honoured to announce that Aura has received a Silver A ‘Design Award in the Interior Space & Exhibition Category for our design work on Westland Insurance’s head office. The A ‘Design Award & Competition’s eminent Grand Jury panel, comprised of prominent press members, famous designers, esteemed academics, and noteworthy entrepreneurs from across the world, has acknowledged our outstanding skills, innovation, and commitment to exceptional design. This recognition serves as a testament to our team’s unwavering dedication and enthusiasm for designing engaging workspaces where teams perform their best.
With Inspiring and Approachable as the design concept, each floor has a uniform welcoming feel. An equitable workplace was developed by highlighting inspiring views by isolating them for shared communal use among staff. Repetition in materiality provides staff with the familiarity to navigate between floors seamlessly. A featured staircase joins the upper two floors, creating connections and allowing staff to engage in chance encounters. With an emphasis on flexible design, the seventh floor houses the reception area, conference center, bistro and catering kitchen and can double as an event space. Local materials native to Canada are featured to showcase the company’s heritage that began in British Columbia.
