Great, modern working environment.
RFD once again had the pleasure to work with Allenby Commercial on a renovation development in a premium location of Hull.
Appointed by APD we have created a contemporary workspace
which drives creativity and productivity within the space.
Incorporating the vast number of structural beams and columns
into space planning has created a variety of different intimate zones that
supports the wellbeing of this modern working environment.
We have created offices that APD are proud to work at.
We have started by creating all the typical technical drawings. Once completed they were followed up with mood images, mood boards and visualisations.
Breaking the rules of ‘forever white ceilings’ has emphasized
and energized the interior design alongside other bright colours used within
Creating soft breakout meeting zones as well as quiet working spaces within the open plan environment was very important for the day to day working comfort.
Fully integrated white kitchen with bleacher seating that doubles up to a relaxed training facility.
Colours are given to have a major effect on how we feel within the interiors, this is why we have used a colour from the very centre of the colour spectrum.
It is the colour of balance – a very important concept in the meeting rooms.
Mint, it is said to represent tranquillity and has a calming effect, but really, whatever the explanations – we just love it.
Artworks and plant life all add to the environment.
The reception says a lot about a company, it expresses the company’s image and it is a great chance to make a good first impression, hence if not represented correctly it can be seen as a missed opportunity. This is why we took extra care of making this space work for APD.
It is a place to make visitors feel welcomed and comfortable.
‘Research shows that productivity under daylight is much higher than when only desk lamps provide the necessary workstation lighting. In addition, deprived of daylight our artificial hormone system releases more of the stress hormone cortisol, in the long term, the immune system suffers and you tend to become sick more often.’
In collaboration with Hacel lighting we have made sure that the light levels are ideal for the office environment. Not only the lighting system in the whole building is adjusted to all of the employees needs it has also become a design feature with modern pendant options.
