The Brief

The client wanted to relocate from their traditional office across multiple floors to an agile workspace with shared desk facilities and collaboration all on one floor. The refurbishment was managed by Rider Levett Bucknall who we worked closely with to deliver the project. We were required to design the floor to allow maximum capacity focusing on the flow of space, accessibility and natural daylight.

What we did

As the building was occupied, the team had to work around parking constraints and be mindful of noise that may disrupt staff. For the office fit-out we centralised collaboration zones within an open plan design. A folding acoustic wall provides flexibility as it can separate a room into two meeting rooms or be folded to create one large space. A mildly industrial design, inspired by the polished circular columns within the building, was achieved in the breakout and collaboration areas by removing the suspended ceiling. In the reception area, a timber slat wood feature wall incorporates a glass display cabinet which house historic fire insurance marks.

We created a range of working environments such as focus rooms for private meetings which are separated by glass partitioning to still allow full view of the space. We also included collaboration spaces and acoustic pods for quiet working. To add splashes of colour, we specified patterned wallpaper, graphics of local landmarks and a living moss wall. For the furniture, we selected durable and contemporary products such as our modular mobile meeting tables, banquette seating and collaboration tables with desktop power and colourful soft seating.
