Overcoming Design Challenges with Innovation

One of the primary hurdles in creating the Command and Control Centre, as navigated by ODD, was designing a space that supports the staff’s daily routines, shift timings, and circulation. The solution lies in an interior design that prioritizes the flow of movement, allowing staff to navigate the space effortlessly, thereby enhancing productivity and minimizing disruptions. ODD’s expertise in optimizing spatial layouts ensures that every corner of the environment is functional and conducive to efficient workflow. This philosophy is exemplified in their transformative work at Gloria Jeans Murree, where Eden Residencia turned it into an architectural landmark.

The Command and Control Centre’s design considers the psychological impact of the working environment on staff performance. The choice of colors and materials, carefully curated by ODD, is aimed at creating a space that is not only functional but also psychologically supportive. The result is a workspace that feels professional and welcoming, where staff can perform their duties with a sense of calm and focus.

Safety and Security Measures:

Prioritizing Protection
