Companies are facing a huge challenge enticing staff back to the office. We were asked to address this issue by designing an office reception space that works harder than a simple pass through to the lift lobby. The brief was to create a space with the wow factor providing spaces to work, meet and socialise. A coffee area was included to provide high quality beverages to encourage staff to use the space. The space has been designed with sustainability in mind, with the products selected. There are no plastic water bottles, providing filtered water as an alternative and no single use cups. Connection to nature has a huge impact on wellbeing and extensive planting has been included in the scheme.
