Our exciting work with Norwich City Football Club continues.
We were recently asked to refurbish the offices at the Carrow Road stadium. They were starting to think – as well as play – like a premier league team, so it was time for them to up their game behind the scenes as well!
Their sense of drive and ambition was clear from the start. This refurbishment wasn’t just about sprucing up their existing offices, they were looking for a new environment that would help to bring the team together and energise their collaborative culture.
To bring this vision to life we literally broke down walls to create an open, flowing workspace that had a visual impact but also worked as a practical, productive workspace for their team. We created new breakout areas for informal meetings and chats, and we’ve installed 10 large digital televisions so that a screen can be seen from wherever you are in the office.
For an office refurbishment on this scale, we took a coordinated design approach that encompassed everything from the building work and regulation compliance to the refurbishment, redecoration and furniture supply.
We worked hard to give the space all the little details (and surprises!) that would bring the area to life and we’re delighted with the result. As well as adding club photographs and graphics, we’ve chosen a variety of different textures and finishes on the walls, flooring and bespoke furnishings which really deliver a personal touch to reflect Norwich City F.C.’s vibrant history.
We’re really pleased with the way the office has been upgraded by Bluespace. Jonathon and the team were meticulous in their attention to detail and the end result shows the difference between what it takes to create a good office space and a great office space. It’s clear to see how this new office has positively affected everyone working and visiting Carrow Road.

Our favourite addition is the entrance, which we’ve completely reconfigured. It now includes a lounge area and we’ve added a backlit stainless-steel quote from Delia Smith herself.
For us, the project has given the whole Bluespace team a huge sense of pride as we’ve all loved working for such a prestigious and well-loved club. This office revamp is part of a series of refurbishments that we’ve been carrying out for the club which includes the Team Dressing Rooms, Player’s Lounge as well as the restaurant and offices at Colney Training Centre. Keep your eyes peeled for further news about the exciting work that we’re doing with the club.
If you’re looking to refurbish your office to better reflect your company’s history and values, get in touch with our design experts.
The team at Bluespace are professionals from design right through to the installation team on site. Furniture decisions can be quite stressful but Bluespace led us through the choices, worked with stakeholders and kept within our budget. The Centrum on the Norwich Research Park was a challenge – the space performs lots of functions: a busy café-restaurant, a place for a private chat or to work on the laptop between meetings, a networking venue and presentation space alongside meeting rooms! Bluespace proposals made the space work for everyone. We’ve had lots of praise for the choice of furniture and I’m sure this has contributed to Centrum’s success. I look forward to working with Steve, Jonathon and Fran again.
