Simply Business

Simply Business wanted to make their Northampton offices a hub for attracting and retaining local talent. With Rhino's commercial design and fit-out expertise, we worked together to create a fantastic space for their team.

Industry: Commercial Insurance

Size: 22,000 sq ft

The challenge

As one of the UK’s biggest commercial insurance brokers with a bold online presence, Simply Business requested a complete interiors re-fit and refurbishment of their impressively-scaled yet uninspiring building in Northampton. They desired a vibrant and dynamic transformation to correlate with their branding and website.

With an enviable reputation as a great company to work for, they wanted to develop an energetic culture to reflect this, fully focused on their employees, giving them engaging and eye-catching spaces to work within.

Our solution

A thorough consultation period resulted in an interior solution like no other – it allowed Rhino to fully understand how our client was willing to push the boundaries to gain a unique, leading-edge environment. This multi-phase project included a bespoke, fully flexible auditorium with interactive screen and café zone utilising a striking steampunk theme.

The lively palette fully reflects our clients multi-coloured branding, whilst an eclectic and unexpected selection of furniture and fittings all add to the dramatic, futuristic surroundings. There is also a games zone where hardworking staff can take time out.

Rhino fully incorporated Agile Working principles into the design strategy to make the workspaces adaptable and fluid, staff can move from one space to another and work in the environment they need in order to thrive. With no barriers between the ‘social’ and ‘work’ areas employees don’t feel part of a divided workforce.

“We selected Rhino as they and their design team got the vision we trying to create for our contact centre. We did not want to create a typical environment or simply have an upgrade on what we had before.

We wanted to create a space that was inviting and engaging, providing a wide variety of working and relaxing spaces to allow our teams to enjoy working here and achieve great results”
