Hudl approached Rap Interiors to tender for the design and fit out of their new workspace in Islington. Their brief was to create a workspace which could facilitate an ‘activity’ based working style, where employees are given the freedom to choose how and where they want to work.
In addition to creating a space which facilitated activity based working, Hudl wanted an office that reflected their brand identity.
After receiving Hudl’s design brief, Rap’s London interior designers drew up 2D plans outlining how the space would be transformed.
To facilitate activity based working, the design included a multitude of ‘zones’ so that employees to choose a mode of working which worked best for them. Among the zones: a comfortable lounge for quiet concentration; private rooms for meetings, video chats and phone calls; and an open plan office space with shared and individual desks.
In order to create a space that reflected Hudl’s company identity, Rap proposed a sports theme for the commercial interior design. To achieve this, the final design included a bespoke ping pong table sporting the company logo, a football badge themed graffiti mural, gym lockers, a running track, and grass covered walls within the meeting rooms. Each room was also named after a UK sporting hero (Johnny Wilkson, Hope Powell, Bradley Wiggins etc.), and had an electronic display panel showing their image and information such as meeting times.
In addition to the above, Rap interlinked the meeting rooms with the new smoke alarm and emergency lighting systems; reworked the power, data and lighting for the electrical solutions; and created an expanding metal ceiling to achieve an exposed, industrial look.
Hudl now has a modern, state-of-the-art workplace that matches their company identity and facilitates an activity based style of working. We at Rap are delighted to have contributed to creating this cutting edge office space, which will help Hudl to grow their brand and move forward as a company.
