The challenge

The space now occupied by Smith Partnership looked very different when we first visited. It was dirty and stripped back, in the words of Claire Twells of Smiths "it felt like an underground car park". The client hated it.

But what the space had were two vital ingredients for any successful space - big spaces, and lots of natural light; our design team couldn't wait to get started on it.
Working closely with the landlord, our designers started shaping the look & feel to test Smith Partnerships appetite for a 'non-office' interior, and what a surprise we got when they returned saying they liked all of it!

Our solution

From that moment the focus was on creating a workplace which supported their staff, propelled their company forward and put Smith Partnership head and shoulders above the rest in this area. 

The client had a number of specific requirements to ensure that environment supported their business; plenty of meeting rooms, plus spaces for focus work or informal meetings, two separate waiting areas, a clear security cordon - and a tunnel!

We provided

  • Office Design
  • Office space planning
  • Office Fit-out
  • Office Furniture
  • Graphics

“We're so proud of our new office space. It rivals any space in Derby never-mind the East Midlands. It's a space our staff absolutely love.”
