Working conditions for weren’t up to snuff. Offices were warrens, split among three buildings. But the situation was remedied when the company consolidated its staff of 400 in a building in Chertsey, outside London, and asked to fit out the interiors.
Pringle Brandon Perkins + Will did more than just pull together snazzy furnishings; the firm proposed a whole new way of working, one centered on an open plan and collaboration. The 100,000 square feet are divided into two upper levels of work space and a ground-level “street” featuring the café, the auditorium, and meeting facilities both open and closed. Upstairs, desks are mostly unassigned, and each employee has a locker for personal items. Mother Nature inspired the vibrant color palette and large-scale graphics.
