Sovereign Wealth was expanding its head office in Leeds and taking additional space within Thorpe Park, Leeds. With a wide variety of private and corporate clients visiting Sovereign Wealth daily, it was important that this office – and particularly its reception area – should be prestigious and impressive, as well as practical and beneficial to staff wellbeing.
Ben Johnson Interiors designed a spacious, sleek, and elegant reception area in shades of charcoal and black with brown walnut trim and with smart yet comfortable seating. From here, visitors can easily be ushered to a large, adjacent meeting room for six, or choose from three further meeting rooms for four people.
The stylish, business-like colour scheme is continued into the open plan desking area, arranged in an L-shape, in four different formations – with plenty of space and screening for social distancing. This working area can accommodate desks for 20 people at any one time.
Sovereign Wealth was very keen to offer its staff a choice of working areas and collaborative hubs, so Ben Johnson Interiors has provided some upholstered booths within a large, comfortable breakout area and kitchen. These booths can be used for informal meetings or simply for staff to relax and eat together. More seating and sociable relaxation options are also provided in this breakout area, along with excellent, modern food preparation areas and cooking facilities.
The whole ambience of this new workplace is of a highly professional, efficient yet approachable firm operating quietly and successfully on behalf of its wide range of clients.
“I am delighted with the design and fit out work that Ben Johnson Interiors carried out from the initial interior designs through to the furniture choices and fit out. Nothing was too much trouble. I would wholeheartedly recommend them.”
