APL is one of the world’s leading ocean carriers providing comprehensive global container shipping services in over 70 countries via their global network. APL’s commitment to service delivery is led by a highly qualified team of professionals equipped with extensive management experience and industry expertise gained across the international transportation sector.

To cater to such caliber we devised an innovative open office concept with an open floor plan in accordance to the company identity and branding. Exploring the very essence of the client; transportation and tracking, we conceptualized “the barcode” to appear in terms of space and ambiance to provide a contemporary office space that functions day and night. Overlooking the port of Colombo the openings of the office space has been designed to explore an infinite visual connection to enhance “global tracking” signifying the spirit of the trade.
