The Solution

This office refurbishment was commissioned to Meridian Interiors after a previous collaboration, where the team were chosen to install office partitioning.

Following on from this successful project, Meridian Interiors were briefed to deliver a commercial office refurbishment to improve a central, multi-purpose area. The aim of the project was to create a place where staff and visitors would feel at home to take breaks, informal meetings and sit quietly away from the central day-to-day workings of the office. Taking inspiration from initial 2D sketches provided by Purdicom, Meridian worked to bring these ideas to life. This Wantage office refurbishment resulted in a relaxed, central reception and breakout area that not only provided a welcoming feel for clients but for employees also.

This complete reception office refurbishment included:

  • Acoustic treatments
  • Decorating
  • LVT flooring
  • New tea point
  • Acoustic feature ‘Buzzishade’ lights from Muffle
  • Vinyl wrap and rugs

The area design featured break-out area seating, a new tea point and an established receptionist desk to create a dynamic, multi-functional working space. The functional elements to this design remained on brand and were in keeping with the overall feel of the existing office, while the client chose some of the most stand out features to tie the space together. This included the wall graphic that stretched across the entire back wall, with soft furnishings and rugs to bring a sense of calm and relaxation.

We worked with the existing colours and features of the converted barn to ensure the soft lounge areas and work areas blended well with the existing features. The natural hues and pops of orange were complimented by the use of acoustic lighting, rugs and cushions for the final look. Office acoustics were considered with the lighting to reduce din and unwanted office noise. The installation of noise-reducing lampshades featuring sound absorption design helped to ensure the space was fully workable and multifunctional.

Office Furniture was supplied by Meridian Office Furniture. Discover our office refurbishment services to find out more.

“We engaged with Meridian as we wanted to revamp our reception area to make it fun and vibrant for when people return to the office.

We contacted Meridian and put some simple ideas to them which they transformed into 2D mock-ups for us to look at, with relevant pictures and brochures of the furniture and design.

Not knowing what we could or could not do, Meridian guided us through it all and made suggestions that we encompassed in the final project, such as a feature wall, different shades of painting, rugs, and large hanging lights.

The result was amazing and was the reception area that we wanted, but our imagination did not stretch as far as their vision. 

Their team did an excellent job, and the project management was superb, with everything handled by Meridian, leaving us time to run our business.

The finished look is smart, tranquil and stylish and very much in keeping with us a company. 

I would have no hesitation in recommending Meridian, as this was a really exciting project that has been carried out professionally and has delivered far more that we could have imagined.”
