Castle (EU) Ltd
Cleaning and hygiene solutions supplier, Castle, approached Axis House for a complete end to end office refurbishment package for their 3000sq ft. office space in Portsmouth.
Following thorough consultation to ensure proposed design and space planning would meet Castle’s expectations, strip out and refurbishment was completed in just 10 weeks, providing the team with a fresh, new, flexible space for agile and collaborative working.
The new space features traditional desking alongside collaborative spaces and quiet pods that the sales team find particularly useful for calls, a fully equipped canteen, ’resimercial’ style breakout area, meeting room and 8 seat boardroom.
An open plan layout was used to maximise natural light, using white furnishings with blue accents highlighted with fresh green planting and pops of bright colour.
To divide the open plan space, a feature carpet runs the length of the office with storage unit dividers and wooden panel screening to clearly define the different workspaces.
Industrial style LED light fittings and panels were selected for both their aesthetic qualities and improved energy efficiency to reduce long-term costs, whilst whiteboards and TV screens were installed throughout to maximise team brainstorming opportunities – key for Castle’s small but agile team.
To enhance staff health and wellbeing, a fully equipped canteen and ‘resimercial’ style lounge area was incorporated into the space, using low slung furniture and dark blue feature wall to create a calming space for staff to fully relax and recharge throughout the day.
The key to creating a successful work space like Castle is ensuring your partner fully understands business needs and keeps them central to the design and planning process.
Poorly designed work spaces not only cost more in the long term but also impact productivity and morale, affecting business performance and making staff retention and recruitment difficult.
Our experienced team worked closely with Castle throughout the process to get every detail right, delivering a space that really works for their business.
