Select Interiors were invited by Kate Yates of Territory Interiors Ltd to design and refurbish over 2000sqft of commercial offices, reception, atrium, communal corridors, WCs and executive offices at the Design Works in Gateshead.
Our intention was to create a flexible space centred around a creative, communal co-worker space within the atrium area.
The idea to provide as much variation in the way people work as possible – sitting at a desk, a high table on stools or even in the co-worker inspired breakout area.
The palette includes materials to give a bright and airy feel with colours from the client’s updated brand guide,
along with a sympathetic nod to the buildings look and feel. Working with striking Aluminium curtain-walling and existing Maple flooring and cantilevered concrete staircase and structural columns
The gazebo feature that runs through the middle of the atrium is unified by the client’s new brand palette, houses meeting spaces, break out areas and design workshops. A fundamental part of the business providing flexible and economical spaces from 200 – 1000sqft. The rapid expansion of this dynamic property company that has identified a market catering for small to medium businesses is helped by innovation and investment in design and refurbishment of their estate.
When instructing a commercial designer, it is useful to consider the following:
Objectives: Clearly communicate your goals and desired outcome for the project.
Brand guidelines: Provide any existing brand guidelines or style preferences to ensure consistency in the design.
Target audience: Consider the target audience and what will appeal to them in terms of design and messaging.
Budget and timeline: Discuss the budget and timeline for the project and ensure the designer is aware of any constraints.
Reference materials: Provide any reference materials or inspiration for the design, such as examples of similar designs you admire.
Feedback and revisions: Clearly communicate your expectations for feedback and revisions during the design process.
Final deliverables: Specify the final deliverables you require, such as files in specific formats or resolution.
By keeping these points in mind, you can ensure a smooth and productive design process with clear expectations and outcomes.
