MINT is an entry level employment agency. It focuses on getting young people, aged between 16 and 25 years old, who have a barrier to work, into sustainable paid employment.
Our design team came up with suggestions to partially refurbish their offices to give them a fun, modern new look. We specified new floor coverings, wall colours, signage and new furniture comprising bespoke and upholstered elements.
The challenge was to create a fresh look for the space but without modifying key elements of the area that define the environment as being part of The Forum.
New furniture from Orangebox and Bralco were used resting on Laylines carpet tiles from Milliken.
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.
