With a pending lease expiry offering the opportunity to exit their ageing office building, Denso Sales UK called us in to assist in putting their own personality into the proposed Coventry office relocation.

Industry: Automotive

Size: 20,000 sq ft

Lead consultant: Howard Barnes

The challenge

Having already work with Denso on their London offices, our team had a good idea of what was needed to create a space uniquely Denso.  But as the space was substantially larger than the London office, a creative approach to costing was needed to ensure there was sufficient budget available to accommodate the aspects which add the personality. 
Much of the partitioning was retained and modified, as was the carpet and tea-points – but with features added.  The lighting and air conditioning was upgraded, and the whole space was dressed with eye-catching graphics.

Our solution

The office spaces were dressed with full height images of the iconic landmarks in the region.  The ground floor meeting room suite was further improved with sliding operable walls, and all rooms had graphics installed with a very corporate theme, as was the reception area.  The staff kitchens retained the existing fittings, but the addition of feature walls, decorative splashbacks and warm, pendant lighting made them into rooms to linger in.

But the jewel in the crown is undoubtedly the Japanese Garden.  Modelled on Central Park – the garden at the head office complex in Japan, this space wraps around the reception with raked gravel beds, bamboo walls and shoji screens and relaxing vistas of trees and blossom.  It provides the staff an area to relax in, and for informal meetings whilst showing visitors the scale of the corporation thanks to a huge graphic of one of the HQ buildings shot from Central Park.
