Turning unused space into a bright, funky office breakout area

Great office design isn’t all about transforming big office spaces, we often think it is more challenging to turn small, previously unused spaces into something that staff and businesses treasure.

And, so, we are quite proud of this wonderful breakout area created by Source One’s Chloe on a project for Signature Flatbreads in Bedfordshire. This was an area at one side of a split stairway leading to an unused doorway, it had become dead space and now it is a bright, funky breakout space!

Flexible, informal & relaxed workspace

In term of design, we worked to utilise a previously unused area to provide a space to make phone calls, give the team time away from their desk and somewhere for a cup of coffee with a client.

We also introducing lots of new colour into the space to create a bit of energy. On this occasion we also moved away from corporate colours, that we have used in other design spaces for with Signature Flatbreads, as we wanted this area to feel less formal and more relaxed. A mixture of Gooseberry and Petal fabric finishes gave a warm and light feel.

We are delighted to say that the new breakout space is in constant use by the Signature Flatbreads team and has proved a popular addition to the workspace.

Focusing on the details

This new breakout space was created even though our team were also delivering a bigger project on the site, installing new air conditioning into 3 of the Signature Flatbread units.

In addition to these projects, over the last year or so, we have also worked with them on product tasting area, kitchen, meeting rooms and reception areas.
