I'm designing an interface for an application that is most likely going to sit within our intranet. Users will access it from our intranet and we feel that it will make their jobs easier if they have the intranet global navigation available so they can navigate to other areas in the intranet to continue their work.
However we're not sure if the positioning of the global navigation for the application conflicts with the global nav of the intranet. Here is a mockup of the design:
As you can see, there is a local navigation within the application. There are a few pages that have this local navigation that lets users browse content local to the context.
This app will set a precedent for future apps as we are trying to create a standard look & feel. Our app design follows the windows 8 UI guidelines & the menu at the top emulates the xbox interface behaviour.
My question is does this violate any UI/UX principles due to it's position, does it conflict with the intranet global nav, why/why not?, and if you feel that it does, do you have any other recommendations?
Please remember that there are two levels of navigation that need to be accommodated for within the application (global+local).
Update: Here is an image of the application with the intranet nav + its own nav It's not the final design, but this should illustrate how it will look and the difference in appearance between the global intranet nav and the application global nav.
