O'Leary Sludds Architects - Office Fit-Out, C.R. BARD
Office Fit-Out, C.R. BARD
A commercial interior office fit-out, with a central blue feature which “snakes” its way through the space in order to break up the large expanse of open plan office space. The ‘snake’ creates a communal zone of informal meeting, print, storage and water cooler areas where people will naturally come together over the course of a working day.
As the Project Managers and the Lead Architect, O’Leary Sludds Architects offered a turnkey service which ranged from the co-ordination of a full design team to procuring all loose & fitted furniture.
The blue ‘snake’ is located directly under the ridge of the roof’s portal frame which allowed it to become the main route for the M&E services. By putting the main service route in this location it allowed us to maximise the floor to ceiling height over the main open plan areas.
The desks are serviced from the ceiling via service poles as there was not enough height for a raised floor and the location of a cleanroom underneath the mezzanine prohibited us accessing the office from below the slab also as this would have affected production.
