To create an interesting workspace, comprising of an open plan desk arrangement for 14 people; a resource point; a meeting room for 12 people; a meeting room for 4 people; and an informal area where staff could work away from their desk. The building’s structure, including an atrium which formed part of the workspace, many columns and the position of existing mechanical and electrical services – had to be carefully considered when planning the layout.
We worked closely with the client to achieve an optimal layout within this challenging footprint. The meeting rooms were positioned so that Millican Law can welcome their clients straight into the smaller meeting room from the large shared atrium space, which is filled with natural light. To encourage this natural light into the workspace, both meeting rooms have internal glazed partition fronts, providing a perfect elevation for branding. The bench desks and bespoke resource point, which has built-in storage, were positioned diagonally to prevent the space feeling too uniform and formal. Snippets of colour can be found within the details of the furniture, with more of a playful approach in the larger meeting room. The informal touchdown table in the open plan area provides a high level work and meeting space for staff to use spontaneously.
“We were keen to base Millican Law within an impressive and interesting space, which would offer private meeting areas as well as collaboration zones. Ben Johnson Interiors have certainly achieved that for us.
The end result is a stunning, welcoming office which conveys friendliness and warmth as well as offering a good, business-like ambience. The natural light, glass walls and bold snippets of colour add individuality and character to the interiors.
The Ben Johnson Interiors team were very pleasant from initial concept to final sign-off and nothing was too much trouble.
Everyone from visitors to clients and new and existing staff love the new workplace. We would highly recommend Ben Johnson Interiors for any kind of workspace design project”.
