The atmosphere created in the reception and meeting areas is more akin to a hotel than an office space.
Clean and simple, the emphasis within this area is on light pattern. The company provides the UK's airtraffic-control service, confidentiality is obviously important. Space within the reception area enables meetings to take place without visitors entering the office space. A circular downlight by Wila provides general lighting to the space. This gives a moody effect, while its opal surround adds interest. Within the meeting space, asymmetric lighting on the panels between the meeting areas gives a domestic feel.
A tube pendant - the cylinder from Concord: marlin - over the circular tables adds to this atmosphere.
A colour-changing wall runs from the ground to the second floor, adding to the visual impression.
