DS Smith is a leading provider of corrugated packaging in Europe and a specialist in plastic packaging worldwide producing customer-specific packaging with emphasis on state-of-the art design and local service close to customer facilities.

Officescape were requested to come up with a design for the first floor of the Newmarket office to incorporate the new company branding; “The Power of Less”. We devised a plan to keep the office fully functional throughout the refurbishment process.

The design brief was to lead the visitor through the space from the main reception entrance, then through the entire suite whilst enjoying a consistent visual and spatial experience.

Modern, bright primary colours have been carefully used, whilst the frameless glass, uncluttered solid walls and light wood veneer door leaves retain a contemporary feel.

The end result is exactly as requested; a bright, stimulating workplace, successfully accomplished within the planned timeframe.

This project included:

  • Complete strip out
  • Bespoke flooring
  • New lighting throughout including bespoke feature light rafts
  • Power and data system design and installation
  • Washrooms
  • Bespoke graphics
  • Furniture throughout including bespoke boardroom
  • New ceilings with acoustic insulation
  • Mixed partition system
  • In situ refurbishment, keeping office fully operational throughout
