Client Brief

To create a fun, collaborative and vibrant office space that reflected EPG’s company identity.

Our Office Interior Design

Following a CAT A fit out (completed prior to Rap’s arrival), we were called in to complete the office fit out works in accord with EPG’s spec and our design.

With fit out works required for the ground, first and second floor at Wallside House, our office designers created 2D plans and 3D renders for each.

Our client required two large breakout areas: one on the ground floor, and one on the first. The 3D design for both included a kitchen, dining area, corner sofa, flat screen TV and funky brick effect wallpaper. These elements were key in creating a fun, hospitable environment – as per the request of EPG.

For the office space itself (floors one and two), an open plan design with shared desks provided the perfect solution to facilitating a more collaborative environment. On the first floor, the design showed how the office would run adjacent to the large breakout area, which had a proposed glass partition to add depth and brightness to the room. For the manifestation on the glass, we worked closely with EPG to create a bespoke branded design.

To reflect EPG’s company identity, our office designers also proposed that their trademark colours of white, grey, green and purple were used throughout. The design for first floor office, for example, included green and grey chairs, purple mounted desk screens, a grey carpet and white walls.

Rap also provided 3D proposals for a smaller breakout area and manager’s office on floor two, and a meeting room and reception on ground level.

Our Solutions

There were a number of challenges to overcome during the implementation of our office interior design. In order to situate the reception and waiting area in the same space, a dividing wall needed to be taken down. Due to it being a solid bridge block wall with coving on one side and a lay-in ceiling grid on the other, this required an unorthodox solution to remove it, which involved installing a lintel to support a small section of course brickwork. With the solution in place, Rap were able to unite the reception and waiting area, making for a spacious, hospitable entrance to EPG.

Rap were also asked to install five TVs with a short time remaining on the project. For the boardroom TV, our client requested that the connectivity between the TV and the table be hidden. Our solution was to chase out walls and hide cables in them, with the wires then running underneath the floor and back up to return to the desk. Finally, Rap introduced wireless senders, which transmit HDMI signal and audio up to a distance of 10 metres.

EPG now have a modern open plan office which reflects their company identity, and offers both comfort and practicality to their employees. We are delighted to have worked on this project, which will help EPG to continue their rapid growth in the life science industry.
