Zeal is a leading full service digital and creative agency who engaged with us at the very early stages when searching for their new Head Office in Leeds. Once the Platform was identified as their perfect location, the design and build partnership commenced.
Creating the design proposals, inspirations and overall feel of their new HQ was very much a collaboration between the Zeal and ourselves. Working with a very enthusiastic and forward-thinking client made the whole design process very easy as they just got it first time! The result: the client was thrilled with their new dynamic, energetic, collaborative and creative workspace.
Wanting an inspiring, fun atmosphere, Zeal wanted to break away from a sterile office environment. We kept the company colours in all areas including the carpet and furniture to create a vibrancy and a poured concrete wallpaper for an urban backing to the reception area with the offset of the timber panelling to tie into the garden area.
The office being on the 8th floor meant making the most of the amazing views with Crittall glass partitioning to allow light in and an open, fresh feel. Using different floor finishes to separate spaces within the office and cool, clean colours and graphics to represent Zeal’s brand.
Although the views are great there was a vast amount of concrete, so Zeal wanted to bring some more colours and outside textures in. This included the fake grass and timber trellises in the garden area with a resin panel brick effect wall to add another outside texture. We also installed the Audio Visual equipment and created write on magnetic walls for collaboration and fully retracting acoustic walls to break up some rooms. We also turned he Boardroom into a new conference space.
Work included architectural folding wall, glass partitioning, wall finishes, floor finishes, kitchen and tea points, acoustics, bespoke joinery, AV, loose and fitted furniture.
