Jaguar Building Services envisioned a workspace designed around their people – an environment where their teams could thrive. They had a clear vision of what they wanted from their new office and presented Oktra with their own ideas for the look and feel of the space. The refurbishment was prompted by a need for increased privacy, better kitchen facilities and a comfortable and inviting breakout area for their staff.
Oktra held regular meetings and workshops with the client to develop the design from the initial concepts conveyed in their brief. Bespoke illuminated signage and timber slats distinguish the reception area within an open plan office and create a sense of arrival, while shielding the main office floor from visitors vacating the lifts. The new layout uses crittal-style glazing to separate the desk areas from the main circulation corridor and provide definition while retaining a feeling of transparency and openness.
Natural oak finishes, plenty of plants and a moss wall add warmth and a touch of domesticity to the space. The overall effect is a modern and inviting work environment that is as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing, and will help Jaguar Building Services to attract and retain talent. With an upgraded meeting room and waiting lounge for visitors, furniture to support agile working and ergonomic workstations, employees now have a space designed with their work styles and job satisfaction in mind.
