Finastra is a global provider of financial software applications and marketplaces, and launched the leading open platform for innovation, FusionFabric.cloud, in 2017. It serves institutions of all sizes, providing award-winning solutions and services across Lending, Payments, Treasury & Capital Markets and Universal Banking (digital, retail and commercial banking) for banks to support direct banking relationships and grow through indirect channels, such as embedded finance and Banking as a Service.
The brief was to design and build a new workspace for Finastra’s new office in the ICD Brookfield building in the heart of DIFC, that enabled a dynamic, and flexible environment, while representing the company open platform for innovation and collaboration, and to unlock the potential of people, businesses and communities.
Designed in-house by the Summertown team, the design adopts an open concept system to facilitate easy communication between departments, continuous flow access to common areas and client dedicated rooms, with an innovative and technological integration approach. Abstract shapes, gradients, bright color tones relating to the Finastra logo and the Finastra’s brand identity.
This contemporary new workspace incorporates a continuous and soft evolution between zones, from the reception area to the main boardroom, meeting rooms, workstation area, towards the casual open pantry and break out area.
