Tuesday 2nd June 2017 was a big day for the Dynamo UK office. We moved out of serviced offices to our own premises on Fenchurch Street! The lead up to this move consisted of multiple swatches: blind material, chair fabric, partition textures, kitchen tops… you name it, we probably looked at it! All of which Alice took great pleasure in picking which was best for the office.
We designed our office with the help of David and Amy from CCWS Interiors. They were a great pleasure to work with and made the whole process extremely enjoyable. If you ever need an office refurbishment we highly recommend them.
We wanted to create a relaxed environment for our Dynamites to work in. Comfortable chairs, which suited the likes of Issy and the giant that is Marc. A breakout area by the kitchen for those who want to be away from their desk and a meeting room to host our clients. We also have the added bonus of being on the 6th floor, which means we have our very own terrace looking out towards the Leadenhall building and the Gherkin. However, there are downfalls of being on the 6th Floor; Adrian found that out when the server cage arrived and it didn’t fit in the lift. At about 8.30am Alice looked on whilst Adrian and a workman manoeuvred the cage up 6 flights of stairs. We can now tell you that the width of the stairs get smaller as you go up.
After being in the office for a week we were already pulled away from enjoying it to travel to Italy for our annual company Indaba in Florence! Once we were back from Florence we started to settle into our new surroundings. The one part we wanted to make sure we did was get our company colours out there. If you have visited our new office you will notice we have lots of orange chairs, orange tea towels, orange coffee & tea holders and a fancy orange teapot!
The new office was also a chance for Issy and Alice to add their feminine touch. A trip to a garden centre was made to buy flowers, cacti and greenery. If you ever see an orchid as you walk through the lift doors note that they have been trying to grow it for a year!
We are thoroughly enjoying our time in the new office and can’t wait to show you the final results in person. However for now, take a look at these images of the new Dynamo UK headquarters!
P.S. We are still looking for artwork for the office so if you have any recommendations please let us know!
