On the 19th of June 2019, PwC launched its experience centre, which was developed in partnership with Spacefinish (a design consulting company) on the 3rd Floor of CCP Place, Chief Abiodun Way, Oniru Estate, Victoria Island, Lagos.
The Experience Centre features an enclosed Augmented Reality room, with a functional custom-designed QR code allowing visitors to have an immersive digital experience enabled by their Augmented Reality headgears. This is expected to facilitate the design of user-centric products and services by PwC.
Speaking on the Experience Centre, Uyi Akpata, PwC’s Senior Regional Partner for Africa said: “The Experience Centre is an important part of our broader drive to transform how we engage with our clients, our people and our community in a fast-changing and competitive market. This Centre will drive our thinking around disruption, providing us with a platform to support clients to co-create solutions that meet today’s and future business challenges.”
The design of the Experience Centre pays homage to Africa featuring African artwork and fabrics and provides a modern spin on some cultural reference points. It features a modified script of Nsibidi (an ideographic script originating from Eastern Nigeria), which has been dubbed as Nwabidi, meaning offspring of Bidi, by Spacefinish.
Remi Dada, CEO Spacefinish, believes the design of the Experience Centre aims to solve a core consumer problem while ensuring that users are empowered to be more innovative, collaborative and productive.
This is the latest addition to Spacefinish’s portfolio of modern workspaces, they’re responsible for other notable workspaces such as Google Nigeria, Andela and Venture Garden Group’s Vibranium Valley.
Over the past couple of years, there has been an increased interest in occupying modern workspaces by “The Big 4” accounting firms in Nigeria, the Experience Centre reflects an additional investment in modern workspaces by PwC, after moving its Nigerian Headquarters from a block of flats on Muri Okunola Street, Victoria Island to 4 floors translating to ±4,000 m² in Landmark Tower, Victoria Island, Lagos
