Astellas, a leading pharmaceutical company, appointed us to work with Pringle Brandon Perkins+Wills on the design side. The New iconic building designed by Norman Foster is set perfectly next to a lake and in beautiful Woodland and lent itself to a creative concept Outside Inside.
The main glazed front opened up into a 2 storey high atrium which has been cleverly divided up into 3rd Space Work settings allowing staff to utilise them in a manner of different ways.
The different work settings allow for concentrated work, meeting space, café and lounge style areas that utilised the elegant Swan chairs from Fritz Hansen and Alcove Sofas from Vitra being the key pieces.
Throughout the building screens were utilised heavily to help create the work settings whether they be in ‘The Street’ Atrium or on the work floors.
Screens from Buzzispace and the Viswall from Sedus, which has fins that can be used to block the space off or open up to other areas, all give flexible work areas that can be cleared quickly and easily as the company expands.
Also included was a bespoke package where we worked with Hands of Wickham on the CEO office, Desk, Credenza and AV cupboard and Main Boardroom accompanied by the Fina High back Chair from Brunner.
