Pigeon Investment Management is a property investment and management company based in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. They came to Bluespace looking to refurbish the top floor of a building next to their existing offices. The project included designing the new space with glazed partitioning plus a full height storage wall and decoration using the company’s corporate colours.
The new area, the full length of the top floor, had limiting vaulted ceilings along either side, lower in some places than others. Spaces with particularly low ceilings will be used as archive space, meaning the most can be made of the more open areas.
Bluespace designed the mixture of open plan offices, meeting rooms and a boardroom around the sloped ceilings to create open spaces that take advantage of the natural light. Our in-house design team provided the client with various 3D renders of the possible layout and design.
A mixture of glazed and solid partitioning was used to create new rooms for meetings and a tea room with breakfast bar break-out area. Two shades of Desso carpet tiles were used to reflect the corporate colour scheme.
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.
