MadeSimple’s business plan is to rent desk space at a fraction of the cost of owning your own office space which is perfect for new and small businesses. So when you think of MadeSimple you think hotdesks, fixed desks, private offices and meeting rooms all in an innovative, quirky environment in the heart of London’s startup scene.
Walking into the building you are met with a light, airy and modern reception area. By changing the position of the disabled toilet immediately behind reception the space was opened up allowing for extra room for printers and pigeon holes behind the desk.
The brief also required the MadeSimple office environment to be an extension of the MoneyPenny brand which wants to “blow the socks off every single one of their customers” by “giving you the very best people, engaged in a happy working environment that are inspired to deliver excellence on your behalf”. The reception area communicates what kind of business you are to people as soon as they enter the building and at MadeSimple the message is clear - the neon sign is on trend, the planting is fun yet alternative and the organisation of the reception space portrays professionalism and delivering excellence.
The office space is vast and comprises of 2 meeting rooms, 3 private offices, communal work spaces, mail handling and print areas, multiple breakout areas, a canteen, a communal kitchen space, shower rooms/bathrooms and outdoor terraces. A space this big meant special attention was paid to how the areas can be distinguished.
Using high and low seating, seating booths, shelving and planting has helped group their facilities and distinguish their work spaces. To cope with a busy work environment and the noise that it will bring, acoustic panels were installed in the booths and phone booths.
Workhub’s goal is to motivate and inspire. That’s why every detail was covered, from how the space has been designed through to the little extras such as artwork with motivational quotes.
The meeting rooms are fully equipped and can accommodate up to 8 people each. These are private, bookable spaces which offer excellent connections including charging points, WIFI, TV screens and USB ports.
The Hotdesks offer the same exceptional connectivity in a collaborative space.
Overall the MadeSimple offices give a good impression to visiting clients, the different working zones make bold statements and the facilities are world class. Concorde BGW have helped Made Simple to develop a structured, professional image that inspires confidence and loyalty.
