Category: Fit Out or Refurbishment Under €10m
Project: SONICA First Landings
Lead Architect: Roisin Lafferty – Kingston Lafferty Design
Leading international fit out contractor SONICA is no stranger to delivering award winning designs and inspiring ground breaking trends in interior workplaces. Their new HQ “First Landings” however, was born to be something very different.
Spread over 3-floors and extending to over 30,000 sq.ft., the First Landings project, as per the SONICA brand itself, was conceptualised and devised to be the most technologically advanced and innovative space in the country and aimed to redefine the benchmark for unique, world-class office experiences.
The finished product has already been featured in worldwide architectural publications (Interior Design Magazine, Dezeen, Living, OnOffice Russia, Yatzer, Yellowtrace) and is setting the bar for what the office of the future should be.
Funded and built entirely by SONICA themselves, it represents the physical representation of what SONICA are – one of the most creative and dynamic fit out contractors operating in the European market.
SONICA partnered with interiors architect Roisin Lafferty of Kingston Lafferty Design on the project:
From the outset, I was bowled over with how Roisin and her team brought the concept of First Landings to life. The attention to detail is phenomenal, you are compelled to want to touch and feel every finish. First Landings is not just a feast for the eyes, but also for the senses. The result is everything I envisaged and so much more. Our collaboration reinforces the fact that creativity takes courage and with First Landings, KLD’s bravery has created something very special.Donnacha Neary, Founder & MD, SONICA
First Landings combines co-working office spaces, office suites, and meeting rooms with a range of amenities including canteen, café, podcast studio, games room, Zen area, DJ booth and a 125-seat auditorium. Cutting edge and effortlessly sophisticated thanks to KLD’s design, SONICA’s headquarters is now the perfect showcase for their services.
