Our Favourite Commercial Interior Design Projects
Interior design is a massively important part of any business and has been proved to be directly linked to employees’ happiness, well-being and productiveness.
We’re always sharing our favourite interior design projects over on our twitter, so we decided to put together a blog with some of our ultimate favourite commercial designs.
Insights, Innovation House
This office space is home to 65 staff, including sales, technology and creative teams so the refurbishment needed to be practical for all parties involved. The renovation involved creating a workable open-plan layout with meeting rooms and phone booths for sales staff.
Space Solutions undertook the interior design and fit our services, as well as providing all the furniture and managing the move.
They achieved the practical open-plan layout by adding glass portions to create bright offices and added touches of colour from the companies’ logo throughout the office and new social space.
This whole renovation took around four months, including two months of design planning.

Next approached Chameleon Business Interiors with a brief for their new office space. They wanted the space to encompass the strong brand identity while optimising space for discussion areas and desks.
Feature walls are utilised throughout to break down larger areas and define team spaces to create a private feel to the areas.
One striking feature is the large bookcase which separates the break out area from the office space without creating a segregated feeling.

Hugely successful fabric supplier, Camira, needed their new space in Clerkenwell designed and so contacted Spatial Office Environments, who collaborated with Ingo Interiors, to take on the fit out.
The space itself was relatively small and oddly shaped, so the design would have to maximise it’s potential. Because of the lack of floor space, a custom designed mezzanine floor was built.
Because they’re such a massive fabric supplier, the majority of the furnishings within the fit out were bespoke to ensure there was no element of perceived favouritism.

Beacons Business Interiors were employed to completely fit out the new Network Rail offices. Because the whole office was relocating, it was vital these new offices fit the brief perfectly to ensure the employees’ move was as smooth as possible.
The design itself featured a number of bespoke pieces, including a bespoke kitchen, reception desk and central meeting area – all of which were designed, manufactured and installed within 7 weeks.
The glass enclosed meeting rooms allow for transparency throughout the company whilst making the office itself look modern and up to date.

Diamond Interiors supplied and installed all furniture and fittings when one of the largest car rental firms in the world, RentalCars.com, moved to a 38,000sq foot space.
The client wanted their space to be practical but fun for the employees, so Diamond needed to supply furniture and equipment to support every floor’s individual theme.
The space has been referred to as the ‘coolest office in the city’ by Manchester Evening News.

When they were approached by award-winning technology start up CloudMargin to design a new workspace within the tight deadline of 10 weeks, Space & Solutions rose to the challenge.
The space which was created allows the tech start up’s team to work collaboratively and more effectively than in their old office space.
Featuring sturdy wooden surfaces and metal additions in the form of chairs and table legs, CloudMargin’s space has an almost industrial feel to it, especially when paired with the exposed ceiling beams.
With touches of the companies signature blue dotted throughout the office space, they managed to brand the office without it being too overbearing.
Sofas and big arm chairs create snug break out areas, great for informal meetings.

Confidential Executive Retreat
This customer approached Ribbon Projects wanting an exciting, stylish and fun space.
The most unique part of this whole interior design project is the glass floor in the heart of the space that allows the workshop below to be on full view, exhibiting the customer’s portfolio of vehicles.
Keeping to a minimalist colour scheme, splashes of colour and rich textures were incorporated through key pieces including a striking pink couch and bold coloured workshop equipment.
Space to unwind after a busy day was a must in this project, so a pool table, plasma screens and a bar area were included in the design.
