Once again working with Local World to create a working news room for this busy regional newspaper title. Local World publishes more content on a daily basis than The Telegraph, Guardian, Daily Mirror and the Times combined, and needed a space in which staff could be in the heart of the city and also have a flexible and slick space in which to meet with members of the public and team members from other offices.
With rising real-estate costs, trying to make a space work harder without compromising on a healthy working environment has always proved to be difficult for large organisations.
Amarelle have worked with Local World stakeholders to provide comprehensive workplace analysis reports, which enabled informed design choices when they looked to consolidate offices but increase head-count at the same time.
Within this space we created a hot-desking solution with small areas of individual touch down spaces for sales people and vistors to work from. number of individaul offices and ,meeting spaces were created within this period property and an acoustic folding wall was installed to make these as flexible as possible.
A bright new break-out space was provided with Ipads installed, allowing staff to keep up to date with breaking news. New digital wall-coverings were designed by our in house design team, working with local imagery and corporate branding in order to create a warm and inviting working environment.
Staff images in the the style of polaroid photographs were installed at the office entrance to welcome visitors, and meeting rooms were deliberately installed to the rear of the main office areas to encourage clients to experience the buzz of the newsroom as they journeyed through the space.
