As a leading recruitment company in central London, Aspire were looking for a space which reflected their values and attracted the right staff.
We Are Aspire were forced to relocate due to a lease expiry. Upon finding a central and sought-after location in central London, Aspire called on Rhino to help them fulfil their vision.
There were numerous challenges with this project. Firstly, the building was Grade II listed, even down to the flooring! This required careful and strategic design to ensure the old features remained an integral part of the new space.
Secondly, Aspire were actually downsizing due to a shift in work habits and advancements in technology. The space had to be supportive of agile working and appeal to the very young average age of the staff, to improve staff attraction and retention levels.
We undertook space planning to produce interior design concepts and 3D visuals where we could refine Aspire's ideas and produce exactly what they were looking for. By incorporating striking wall graphics, elements of biophilia and some quirky finishing touches, we could ensure the space was truly instagrammable!
With staff retention being a big challenge for Aspire, the new space undoubtedly helped address this.
