Text description provided by the architects. The design for the headquarters of 21 Cake, a popular gourmet cake franchise, relies on the interaction of the three primary colors: red, yellow and blue.  Selected walls of the office, namely those along circulation areas, are made of laminated colored glass. These glass panels of primary colors are ‘layered’ to create a full spectrum of changing colors.

As one walks through the spaces of the office, changing vantage points in combination with natural and artificial light and reflections produce dramatic effects.  A double height central atrium topped with a skylight brings in light through the layers of color along the staircase and glass bridge on the second floor.
