Highlands and Islands Enterprise have built a new business unit in Dunoon at Sandbanks Business Park and following a public competition on the Scottish Governments PCS webportal, Amos Beech were successful in winning with their interior design and furniture offering.
Interior Design Furniture Sandbank Dunoon
The design team carefully researched the building including visiting at an early stage to get a proper ‘feel’ for the space that allowed them to develop an interior design and furniture proposal that caught the attention of HIE.
The brief was to create a ‘front of house’ reception space that also could be used by any one of the multiple tenants who occupy the building. By asking questions and applying our experience we developed the space to a point where it has become an informal ‘town hall’ space at the centre of the building.
Amos Beech included a coffee station within their design and worked with a local commercial coffee machines and consumables provider to ensure that the only headaches were ones from too much caffeine!
The design encourages the creative staff from all the different business units to come together in the space and by sharing ideas and experiences, many new ideas come to light. This is very much in keeping with the very latest ‘café working trends’ that are proving so popular in the happening cities of the world.
A purpose designed welcome desk, greets visitors to the building and the tablet provides a very simple way of checking into the building and sends a message to the correct business that their visitor is waiting for them in reception.
The elegant furniture selected by the interior design team are complemented by a wonderful piece of artwork on the wall facing the front doors. A professional photograph taken before digital photography was an option has been digitised and enlarged and gives a timeless and dynamic presence to the space.
The Longo seating provides comfortable and relaxed seating whilst minimising the frame work required to support and this helps to maintain the light and airy feel.
To one side of the roof atrium there are a selection of coffee tables and chairs that offer a range of seating choices. With an elegant fusion of timber and solid colours in combination with the flooring detail, this is a space where visitors and staff are happy to linger, mingle and swap experiences and ideas over a cup of cappuccino.
A bookable meeting room is also provided within the space with a Verco DNA table and cantilever frame meeting armchairs.
The first tenant is already installed and BC Technologies selected Amos Beech to provide them with modern office furniture and Wilkhahn ON 3D task chairs.
The result achieved is reflective of this exciting and tech driven computing firm with a bright and funky office space that offers the staff an ideal working environment alongside the shared space the other side of their office door.
