Core and Perimeter Planning
Core and Perimeter planning represent a more traditional approach to workplace planning. Perimeter planning, centered on enclosed individual spaces along the perimeter and large open spaces found at the building core, is ideal for independent and structured work. Core planning places open spaces around the architectural perimeter, while private, enclosed spaces are planned at the building core.
Modular wall components, height-adjustable worksurfaces and multi-functional storage elements form a generous multi-use Reff Profiles private office with Generation by Knoll, Saarinen Table and Brno Chairs.

This will greatly enhance our veneer finishing offering.
