Croydon Office Fit Out Design
A new office for an emerging estate agency/ property lifestyle brand in Croydon. The office will serve many functions beyond just the agency; it will be a space for branding, events and meetings.
The branding for ‘Neighbour’ created by Parent, was about a feeling of going round to your neighbour’s house. Eradicating the outdated estate agency boards, the style of the space needed to match the aspirational aesthetic of the Croydon properties that the company sold.
Broken up into a series of zones – when entering, it should feel like stepping into a neighbour’s living room; soft furnishings, natural materials and soft ambient lighting will create the warm and luxurious aesthetic of a penthouse living room.
A paired back yet luxurious material palette of exposed concrete and timber, with accents of foliage and mood lighting, create a feeling of an inviting industrial penthouse suite.
Lighting plays a role in setting the tone of the fit out, with coloured and white LED strips across the edges.
The office zone will be made to feel like a penthouse dining room- a large dining table and statement chairs will be kept clear of the clutter usually associated with office fit outs, with staff operating on ipads and laptops.
Storage will be completely concealed behind full height timber veneer doors with light strips above and below.
The timber-clad bar area makes use of an awkwardly proportioned rear space, with a series of floating globe lights that multiply under the mirrored ceiling – a place to entertain local Croydon clients.
