To realise Tony Gee’s vision, we started by re-configuring the existing setup, which was cramped and uninviting. This entailed removing a partition wall and heavy storage to create a spacious area for the breakout area and adjoining kitchen. Additionally, we built a glass partition to separate the central office from the new breakout area to ensure greater privacy.
Next, we set about transforming the space to make it more comfortable and welcoming. With an in-house design facility, we were able to develop a modern aesthetic that included a stylish dining table with heavy duty steel legs, bright and uplifting wood vinyl flooring, and a new carpet that provides a bridge to the outside with its cloud-like tonal colour progression.
Another key part of the aesthetic were the decorative elements. To embody the Tony Gee’s identity, our Kent interior designers introduced a wall vinyl of Aylesford Bridge, a Grade one listed building that was a feat of local engineering in Kent. Furthermore, we printed bespoke manifestation of the company’s most prestigious projects on the glass partition, including White Hart Lane station in London.
Finally, to reduce clutter and mess, we implemented ceiling height storage units for coats and a new breakfast bar with integrated cabinets. The breakfast bar included pull-out bins for general waste and recycling to encourage a green mentality.
