Giving an office building’s foyer a facelift is not easy. Not only should the refurbishment improve the layout to facilitate ease of flow, wayfinding and functionality, it should also enhance the feeling of welcome for visitors and a sense of belonging for staff. For the redesign of the main lobby and typical floors’ public areas in 61 Robinson (formerly known as Robinson Centre) in Singapore’s Central Business District, Brewin Design Office has done that.  “The eventual overall mood and tone we wanted to create was to bring an element of hospitality into a commercial typology, to create a welcoming and energised space”, Robert Cheng explains.
