Office Fit-out in Cambridgeshire – EA First

Working with design partner Optrys, Meridian Interiors were excited to utilise a wealth of experience to complete this amazing Cambridgeshire category B office fit-out. Starting with a blank canvas, the brief was to turn this workspace into a functional office, incorporating three stunning features; a biophilia themed quiet space, a staff break-out area and a stunning collaboration space, using inspiration from the Central Perk Coffee Shop, from the hit TV show ‘Friends’!

The Solution

Recreating such an iconic TV set within a work environment was really interesting.

Working to the designs, Meridian set about assisting the client with the selection of specific products to mirror images from the ‘Friends’ Central Perk set, with incredible results!

The bespoke counter bar, wall displays, chalkboard, brick effect wallpaper, feature lighting and ‘Central Perk’ glazing graphics were combined to present a collaboration space individual to EA First’s requirement. The results illustrate Meridian’s skills in delivering this design, down to the smallest detail.

Creating a ‘Quiet Space’ within this Cambridge office environment, was completed with faux grass and acoustic cloud shaped ceiling panels, to which biophilia was supplemented through the addition of real plants. A complementary waterfall was added to create a therapeutic space, for EA First employees to escape to, when they need to relax and recharge, before heading back to work.

The staff break-out space was fitted with a fantastic bar area, complete with glass fronted fridges, a Hydro Zip-Tap, luxury vinyl tiles, ceramic wall tiles and feature lighting.

As an amazing first for Meridian Interiors, a bubble wall was installed. This impressive design feature has a glass sealed tank to hold the water and the bubbles work well with the coloured feature LED lighting. A truly mesmerising feature that has really brought the space to life!

“When I was choosing who to work with to do my office fit out, I did a lot of research.  I came across Meridian and Optrys, I looked at their portfolios and I was impressed by what they did.

The process of this project with Meridian and Optrys was seamless. Communication was brilliant. No request was too big, and importantly, no change was too much hassle for them.

Some of the biggest benefits of creating this type of office is reputation and recognition. Our clients that come here are wowed and it helps us stand out from our competitors. We are leveraging off the quality and uniqueness of this office.

Working with the team was a great experience for me and I will work with them again!”
