Canada Foundation for Innovation is an organization that funds cutting edge research in all disciplines. They engaged Bryan Wiens, ARIDO and the team at LWG Architectural Interiors to create a space that reflects the professionalism of their organizational culture, with a focus on a clean, transparent aesthetic – unencumbered by extraneous design elements.

The foundation's gray and red branding is incorporated throughout the space via flooring and furniture, while pops of red add subtle sparks of interest.
