White Oak is a boutique investment management and investment advisory firm, which was looking to grow and expand its existing office space.
Taking inspiration from the name of the firm and the colors in the logo, the colour green and other form-based aspects of the White Oak tree are introduced in different features of the design.
The wood look-alike Aluminium baffle ceiling is a striking feature in the office space. The baffle system gives the office a warm feel and it is relatively hassle free to install.

The office plan is a combination of open work spaces, cabins, meeting rooms, this allows for both collaborative working as well as privacy. Along the longer walls, acoustic wall paneling is used, so that in a small office like this, sound is not transmitted from one space to the next.
An important aspect of this project is that most of the existing furniture – conferences tables, workstations, office tables were refurbished to adapt to the new design concept.
ABM also worked towards changing the environment of the office by adding wood, foliage, customized details, decorative lights and graphics on walls. The endeavor resulted in a contemporary, transparent and stimulating office space.
