Officescape’s operations and sales office, situated north of Cambridge on the main commuter line into Kings Cross, required a full refurbishment programme due to headcount expansion and an increased need for more focused space within the office.
As thought leaders in Agile Working Environments, we already knew the Demographics and Profiling of our current team – and knew intimately what requirements needed to be factored into the new office space to achieve the best outcomes.
Despite this working knowledge – we had several constraints facing us; – the current office is on the small side to suit our expansion plans, the building only has a limited shelf life before we will have outgrown it, and the location is less than perfect for what the business needs going forward into the future.
We knew however – that by adopting a Smart Approach to the design, investing into I.T. and creating the right balance of alternative spaces (a move away from the traditional desk based / cellular environment that we had) – we could maximise the use of the available square footage – pushing the desk sharing ratios harder as the headcount increases.
Mainly due to the limited life span of this building – we set the design team a challenge to achieve a high performing, ABW design, whilst making the space ‘ours’ (adding quirky features like our exploding head, reception graphics, jungle wall) – all on a shoe-string budget!!
From the initial concept design, we had to compromise on some of the design label products, and re-cycle some existing furniture to bring the project in on budget, however the resulting finished space, has delivered on all counts!
The new studio has brought the team closer together, increased productivity and collaboration whilst giving us breathing space to grow over the next 2-3 years. Our home now truly embodies the culture of the company, whilst giving our clients a unique insight into the way that we really do live out our Core values as an organisation.
