About KMS Facilities Group - Commercial office interior design
RFD work as consultants in the interiors industry creating modern and serviceable interiors for the commercial marketplace. KMS Facilities Group wanted to showcase a modern working office and stores environment by the clever use of interior design.
The project sits in a new build steel portal frame building and the design has been approved and welcomed by both the client and the building control officers who have admired the clever use of internal space, natural finishes and maximised use of existing natural light.
RFD modelled the building on a 3D computer platform to illustrate the overall concept and to sell the ideas to KMS. Our plans and submissions were then approved by building control and the project implemented. RFD have designed this full build project from concept to completion, take a look at how we have followed the design through from an empty shell to a modern cool office interior as a real working showcase for KMS Facilities Group.
RFD advised a high mezzanine structure within the building to add both functional floor space and a sharp architectural feature within the space. We visualised the mezzanine and glass balustrade on CAD to make sure the finishes would gel into the industrial themed environment. This structure proved a real centrepiece once installed and was finished in steel and clean white paints to complement the building and work within the modern scheme.
We specified a hardwearing Karndean floor against some quality Desso carpet tiles to create some clean lines and subtle material finishes to warm the hard industrial shell of the building. We also made a decision to leave all of the skylights exposed, pouring as much natural light into the space as possible which has proved extremely valuable in energy efficiency and the light level visual ambience.
Clean, white bench system furniture was specified which works well with the sharp lines to the architectural interior features and is balanced with all contrasting black and grey seating combinations. We also designed the HVAC system to be exposed allowing this polished steel ducting to become a real focal point and visual statement to the upper mezzanine areas. This neatly sits adjacent to the suspended lighting modules and high bays creating a true feeling of open space.
Typically these steel portal framed buildings are not used to their maximum capability both aesthetically and functionally. At RFD we always belive in using the architectural features of any building to gel with the interior scheme by clever uses of commercial interior design.
