With a motto that promises to transform Internet code writing into “incredible magic”, Visual Lizard is a web development company with a distinct appreciation for functional modern design. When the company purchased an office condo with prime street frontage in the heart of Winnipeg’s Historic Exchange district, they embraced the opportunity to establish a strong physical presence within the community. The objectives for the tenant fit-up project were threefold: to design a space that reflected the Visual Lizard brand, to create a flexible and desirable work environment, and to expose their creativity to the public at the pedestrian level. The writing is literally on the walls as many of the walls, doors, and moving partitions function as surfaces to sketch ideas and plan assignments. The end result is a collage of off-the-shelf materials, readily available hardware, and strategic blocks of colour that work together within the space that drifts from work to play, that blurs the function of archetypal elements, and that invites the curious to just come in for a look.
