Microsoft’s Branding Colours

The branding from Microsoft, 4 colours of red, green, yellow and blue, allowed our interior designers to include pops of colour into the office’s interior design with a colour scheme of grey tones, white and oak.

The bleacher seating was designed as a bespoke item to have different coloured seat pads that reflect the 4 branded colours.

4 large glass wipe boards were installed to cover a whole wall that resembled the Microsoft Windows logo providing a think tank space.

Bleacher Seating

It was made especially as the focal point within the interior design of this workspace, incorporating the oak to coordinate with the rest of the wood features.

As well as the colourful seat pads, the structure of the seats has built-in power to allow for employees to charge their devices while in meetings or testing the Microsoft products.

The bleacher seating will be used for the demonstration of Microsoft’s products as well as for larger office staff meetings. It provides great versatility for an office design with a large team.

Scandinavian Influence

The use of oak had a large impact on the design to accommodate the Scandinavian interior design brief:

  • An oak luxury vinyl tile (LVT) was used as the flooring in the office meeting area in a circular pattern under the large circular wood meeting table and chairs. The circular pattern was cut into the new carpet tiles that were laid in a fading pattern of blue into greys.
  • A feature wall of oak timber slats was installed as part of another meeting area of the workspace. The Microsoft logo and “The Hub” signage was mounted onto them too, seen as you enter the workspace.
  • A timber partition was installed as part of the office refurbishment to encapsulate a poseur table and high stools to create a meeting space. The partition separates this meeting area from the main corridor that is directly adjacent to this area.

See what this London office space looked like before it’s refurbishment. Our office interior designers bought their breakout space design it to life with a 3D render. Then the Rap Interiors projects team refurbished the office into a Scandinavian inspired design.

A word with XMA’s Head Office Marketing Manager

What did you hope this new design will do for the XMA office?

We really wanted to make a modern, collaborative working environment with inspiration from the Microsoft offices, and the Scandinavian feel. We wanted the space to be somewhere our staff could work in teams, to inspire collaboration and creativity and demonstrate the flexibility and capabilities of Microsoft Surface devices. It was also great to have an amazing new space for our staff to come back to after the Coronavirus Lockdown. We are really excited to start using the space, it looks amazing, thank you team Rap Interiors.

Did Rap Interiors fulfil your expectations you mention above?

Yes, they took the design brief and created a range of visuals and options for the office design, keeping in line with our budget and initial ideas and inspirations.

Has the new space been well received by the team at XMA?

Everyone is really excited to see the new workspace in our St Albans office, it definitely makes coming back to the office an exciting day post lockdown.
