Design and Fit Out Hermes’ new Tech Hub in Leeds to create a vibrant, homely office, focused on increasing employee wellbeing, retention and productivity meanwhile steering clear of traditional office design to create a truly inspiring workspace.
The design intent was to welcome all into the Hermes family and deliver an experience for all visitors. We utilised the latest innovations in moving walls and AV technology throughout the design as well as incorporating hot desking to facilitate flexible collaboration throughout the office. Capitalised on Hermes' bold and striking branding to create a vibrant space, using custom joinery and angles to pull your attention into the space meanwhile creating an experiential journey to leave a lasting impression on visitors. Attracting and retaining talent was a key priority for Hermes therefore we designed areas where employees could work and socialise, such as the bar, games areas and the terrace, resulting in a space that feels homely yet promotes collaboration.
"Due to the innovative nature of our business, we recognised that we needed a space that would enable us attract the best people to help us fulfil the demands of our clients. The team at Officeinsight worked with our project team including our CIO to bring the vision to life in their design work going on to deliver the construction of the design. We have already seen a considerable improvement in recruiting local talent, accomplishing our high level objective for the space. The feedback we have had from our people and clients has been fantastic and we are looking forward to working with Officeinsight on further projects."
