Norwich City Football Club are the pride of Norfolk, and the only professional football club in the county. With their official grounds in the heart of Norwich at Carrow Road, the Club also has a training centre in Colney, South of the city.
Bluespace Studio have been working with Norwich City Football Club over the years to transform the stadium’s changing rooms, offices and the Colney training centre. As a result of becoming a premier league team, our brief with the client was to create a new environment that would bring the team together and energise their collaborative culture.

Across the board, Bluespace worked to create open, flowing workspaces with subtle nods towards the football club at all locations. For example, frosted Norwich City Football Club crests on the glass doors at the training centre, a steel quote from club shareholder Delia Smith in the office entrance at Carrow Road, and slight use of the club colours throughout the offices.
Outlining the benefits, Head of Performance Chris Domogalla explained: “We’re very thankful for this extraordinary room. When the players work hard, they need a space to recover. I totally believe that work plus rest equals success. We take care of the physical training and the load but we also wanted them to have a space where they can relax mentally and physically. It will have a huge impact for the players from the mental side.”

Bluespace are immensely proud to have been trusted with these projects, being it’s their hometown club and a well-loved, prestigious club for the local community. The space has been very well received and we look forward to working with Norwich City FC again in the future.
