Avaloq chose Tanfield in Edinburgh for their new World Software Design Centre for Excellence for various reasons including the availability of highly trained graduates from Edinburgh’s Universities. What they also realised was that they might be able to attract the best staff but more importantly they needed to keep them too. Part of this vision was to create a working environment that looked after the health & welfare of their staff as well as being an inspirational place to be.
With gaming facilities, bean to cup Italian coffee machines and a full size pool table providing some refreshment and entertainment in the break-out zone, the serious bit in the design teams had to be something special.
Amos Beech worked very closely with Edinburghs' premier interior design team Cubit3D to seamlessly integrate all aspects of the design into the office fit out.
Office furniture supplied includes Samuel Bruce electric height adjustable workstations, Wilkhahn Trimension 3D ON task chairs, Humanscale M8 dual monitor arms, Wilkhahn Confair and Logon meeting room tables, Hitch Mylius reception chairs, Arper Catifa café seating, Tacchini Polar sofas and matching coffee tables.
Wilkhahns ON 3D chair was selected above some of the best known chairs in the world at evaluation stage and the Samuel Bruce height adjustable desking proved its quality and value for money along with a range of customer selected options that made sure that it was exactly the right solution of the client.
The dual monitor arms from Humanscale were rigorously tested by the client to ensure they would support the large monitors that had been specified. The integral cable management keeps the overall look very clean and uncluttered.
The panoramic views across Edinburgh’s skyline completed the picture.
