The design team at Cocoon & Bauer were asked by Middlesbrough Council to redesign the entrance area to their Boho 5’s offices. The building didn’t have the benefit of a reception area or receptionist and the existing facilities for people to wait comprised of a sofa in front of the lift lobby.
Using an existing office space, which had never been let since the building opened, Cocoon & Bauer’s brief on entering the building was to create a space which improved the outlook for both tenant and visitors. Below is a shot of the space before the transformation.
The design is a mix of masculine and feminine, with greys and pinks combining to make a modern waiting lounge area using furniture products from Ocee Design and Ebourcraft that now entices people to use it.
As can been seen the specified furniture and lighting which is more domesticated and familiar in its look and certainly creates a welcoming and friendly atmosphere.
“The furniture provided by Ultimate was of fantastic quality, which we knew would be the case as they had previously won awards for their furniture supply. The specifying, ordering and delivery process was very easy and the team were always on hand for questions” says Peter Turner Managing Director, Cocoon & Bauer.
