We were briefed to create a space that showcased our client’s market leading position, while consolidating the space from two floors into one with more colour, texture and interest on a very tight programme.
Tétris delivered a hybrid floorplate that merged both traditional and collaborative spaces to ensure a better office experience for employees. We focused the colour and texture in the client-facing areas and collaboration zones, while keeping the workspaces more muted and in line with their corporate ethos.
Multi-functional spaces ensure maximum utilisation, avoiding dead spaces and supporting the hybrid working policy. The pantry area has power within the joinery so staff can work there as well as enjoy lunch with colleagues. Alternative work points in addition to traditional workstations boost capacity.
Furniture is utilised in a strategic way. Sedus booths create private meeting spaces in the broker’s lounge, a flexible alternative to built-in rooms. Meeting offices with height adjustable desks and adjustable monitor arms allow for easy transitions from meetings to office work.
Adaptability and mobility were important: Sedus se:cube enclosed pods support quiet work in the lounge spaces; the Fourlikes seating range by Ocee Design is a fully mobile alternative to joinery in the pantry and lounge. 100% sit-stand desks by MDD create a healthier working environment.
We focused on finishes and longevity: all meeting room tables have Fenix worktops with antimicrobial materials and self-healing properties. Camira fabrics were chosen for their recycled material content. Lockers with Bisley DigiLock touch pads provide keyless access, keeping lifetime costs down.
