Design & Space Planning
When it came to creating an industry-leading new European HQ from scratch, technology company Verifone challenged the AIS team to create a bold, fresh workplace design that would reflect their dynamic company culture and keep pace with its rapid expansion.
The brief was to create an industry-leading workplace design for their employees; a space that was collaborative, dynamic and design led, as well as crafted to showcase their wealth of technological products within their new “Client Experience Centre”. Our design team spent time analysing the building’s architectural envelope and cycle of natural daylight. Above all, we were inspired by the unrestricted panoramic views and the sense of space offered by the building, developing a scheme that would enhance it.
We worked on developing a design scheme that offered comfortable and flexible accommodation and a comprehensive programme of working environments, from individual workstations through to open and closed team areas, meeting rooms to multifunctional meeting facilities. All meeting room suites were fitted with the latest in VC and audio technology to enable the Verifone team to communicate with their global partners. As staff comfort was really import to Verifone, our in-house furniture team worked closely with the client team to select ergonomic and adjustable pieces for throughout the
A fresh, vibrant workplace design for nurturing talent and welcoming visitors. At the core of the office fit-out is a cutting-edge client experience centre that brings together the best gadgets and tech that Verifone has to offer. An impressive suspended ceiling provides acoustic support and linear feature lighting, and the space offers a demonstration facility, board room and individual meeting spaces, as well as comfortable seating for visitors. The adjacent refreshment zone offers a range of facilities including a function space with bespoke serving area and catering facility, and a number of drinks points are scattered across the space for all staff to use. The clean colour palette is accented by the signature blue of Verifone’s branding. By incorporating Verifone’s global brand guidelines throughout the space, each facet of the office embodies the company values.
