BJSS is an IT consultancy specialising in software delivery and IT advisory experience. They operate offices and project centres across the UK and US, with clients including some of the world's largest investment banks, retail banks, government departments, retailers and commodity traders.
After a pitch process, Amarelle were appointed to design and build BJSS’s new office in 90 Victoria Street, Bristol. The brief was answered by creating a contemporary space that worked aesthetically and functionally to maximise staff well-being and productivity.
The new office boasts more than a dozen agile and collaborative working spaces designed to bring individuals together in an informal way. We integrated tiered seating within the kitchen area to cater for more than 40 people, with a ping pong table as the centre piece, creating a centre court to add a fun element to the environment!
We specified slim line bench desks to accommodate the 65 staff moving in on day one with future planning to seat a further 25 staff as the business expands in line with its business objectives. The entrance from the lift provides the visitor with subtle reveals into how BJSS works and the boardroom is positioned within the middle of the office to engage with all aspects of the office at all times.
The 6 week build delivered a space that BJSS proudly call home, embracing their working methods and creating a distinct visual language that echoes throughout the office.
