The brief was to design spaces staff could relax in, capable of hosting small catch-up style meetings.
Amarelle successfully pitched to redesign and fit out four floors with staff breakout spaces in Royal London’s Bath offices.
The brief was to design a space with two specific purposes: to cater for those wanting to get away from the desk, eat, drink and relax; and to cater to those wanting to host small informal meetings. With little space in the open-plan office, Royal London were keen to encourage staff to conduct meetings in the new breakout spaces.
Aden high back chairs by Orangebox offer an informal refuge for individuals and small groups when privacy is required. The design is focused on the increasing need to achieve privacy within open areas. The formed upholstered structure has a second layer of fixed cushions to enhance the comfort, creating a chair that’s easy to use for both meeting and working.
With limited space on each floor, Amarelle’s in-house design team worked hard to maximise its potential. The small space was cleverly divided into many different settings while maintaining the open plan feel. With smart use of glazing, we were able to divide the space while maintaining the natural light throughout.
Amarelle were tasked with developing a scheme that allowed for continuity between the other group sites around the UK while also adhering to Royal London’s strict brand guidelines.
