We spend a large amount of our working life in our workplaces, which is why office design and architectures needs thought and consideration. Working in crowded, dark and dingy offices can provoke higher stress levels rather than those working in more modern spaces. Essentially, offices should be both pleasant and enjoyable to be in.
Office Design at The Tannery
Office design was one of the biggest considerations when setting out The Tannery in Woking, Surrey. Aimed specifically at creative industries such as architects, designers, agencies, artists and developers as well as forward thinking digital businesses, the layout needed to reflect a modern way of thinking. There is a range of open plan, light airy areas to choose from.
High ceilings give a feel of space and avoid team members feeling hemmed in. Instead of the boxed in cubicles typical to the 90’s and cramped kitchen with an old kettle and microwave, everything is clean, airy and spread out. There is a choice of modern office furniture to choose from and the offices are built for collaboration with meeting rooms and shared working areas.
Office Architecture at The Tannery
The Tannery has Bauhaus German inspired architecture, bare concrete bare exposed portal frames and huge windows and glass ceilings. It’s a really clean and modern feel, but the stunning views of the surrounding countryside, canals and the River Wey gives it a friendly country feel.
The amazing office architecture is an amazing background for digital communications as well as in person meetings, and the light is perfect for the additional facilities offered such as the green room and recording studio.
Outside space is also brought into the office architecture, with outdoor meeting spaces to enjoy the rural feel of this state of the art shared office facility.
