The Brief

Girls Day School Trust (GDST) is the UK’s leading network of independent girls’ schools. They wanted to refurbish their 3rd floor London office to create a modern, vibrant environment that would complement their corporate culture. Office Profile was awarded the contract to supply and install the furniture and to create an open plan environment and separate meeting rooms.

A key part of the project was to implement modern and convenient storage solutions within the office. This was achieved by placing low and mid-height steel cupboards which can be locked for added security. The cupboards featured space saving tambour doors which roll easily out of the way. The office also features a large StorageWall area incorporating lockers of varying sizes for personal staff storage. Different colours were used on the locker doors to create the sleek and vibrant environment that the client anticipated.

What we did

The open plan office area was fitted with bench desking systems that included fabric and Perspex desktop screens to create privacy within the individual work areas. The desks featured full cable management along with monitor arms to allow for a clear desk space and modern feel.

The offices featured several informal meeting areas. The first area included bespoke high back banquette seating to allow for an element of privacy while retaining the informal atmosphere. The second area incorporated several informal meeting rooms, created with a combination of glass and solid partitioning. These were furnished with contemporary sofas in rich colours and coffee tables, bright tub seating, and conference seating and tables. The meeting rooms also featured smart StorageWalls that co-ordinated with the minimalist appearance of the rooms.
