Bellchambers Barrett Auditors recently made a strategic move, transitioning from their previous location in Barton to Civic. The decision was prompted by their substantial growth in staff numbers, escalating from 30 to 100 employees.
For their new office space, they had a specific vision in mind – a blend of formality and informality, ensuring both clients and staff felt at ease. The primary focus was on creating an open-plan office layout for workstations while strategically placing quiet rooms and meeting spaces in a central location.
Upon entering the office, visitors are greeted by a beautifully designed fluted joinery reception table serving as the main point of contact. The client meeting rooms showcase intricate detailing and exude sophistication, offering a range of sizes to cater to various client meetings. Soft and linear lighting enhances the overall ambiance, while textural upholstery complements the timber elements, adding warmth and a welcoming touch to the office.
The formal client spaces are thoughtfully positioned near the reception area and seamlessly transition into internal collaboration and breakout spaces. One of the highlights of the office is the spacious kitchenette, which not only serves as a hub and flexible space but also provides stunning views of the city. Its design incorporates curved forms, a combination of timber, stone, and plants, adding a touch of nature to the setting.
