work - Nortel work - Nortel

Nortel, an international communications giant, knew exactly what they wanted for their Asia-Pacific offices, and turned to world-class architecture and interior design firm dwp to realize that vision.

dwp designed their NOC and switching centres in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang with finesse. Working closely with Nortel's Asia-Pacific Directors, dwp customised a palette of colours, graphics and finishes that resulted in a dynamic, yet comfortable environment for Nortel staff. Rich, deep colours similar to those found in traditional Vietnamese painting were used as accents for furniture and fixtures, against a white and earth-toned backdrop for carpets, walls, and work surfaces. Abstract photographic images were applied for a taste of local culture. Images of 'ao-dai' clad women with conical hats and beautiful Vietnamese agricultural fields provided inspiration for staff and a grounding image for the colour theme of each area.

One of the most remarkable features when walking through the Nortel Vietnam offices became the feeling of home, even though it was clearly a place of work.
