Aviva Digital Garage

With insurance being the last financial services market to be disrupted by the rise of fin-tech, Aviva issued a global directive to move its business from a traditional insurer to a purveyor of digital insurance offerings.

Central to this challenge was designing a space that would facilitate a complete disruption of how the business thinks, acts and develops solutions for customers.

"We're competing for talent with brick-and-beam offices. This is the cool workspace for the kind of talent we want to attract".

Different by design

Perceived affordances are signals within an environment that indicate something is possible. We make sense of environments – what they’re for, who they’re for, what type of activities they afford or enable us to do, and how they make us think and feel as a result - by both consciously and unconsciously interpreting all the perceived affordances they present.
