Rackspace is the world’s leader in IT hosting and cloud computing. But when they wanted to create a brand new office space that was out of this world, they gave us a call.
The client needed an office that would both inspire their employees and be a reflection of everything the business stands for. We knew that Rackspace call themselves the ‘home of fanatical support’ and that gave us an idea.
We gave every floor a different theme, inspired by the family home, but with a bit of a twist. The ground floor represented a garage, complete with its own personalised mini cooper. The first floor became a 70s- inspired lounge for meetings, with chairs situated around an artificial fireplace. The second floor, also perfect for meetings, turned into the library, including dark leather chairs, long mahogany tables and bookcases. While the garden, decorated in decking and fake grass, was situated on the third floor, along with the boardroom - a replica of Number 10 Downing Street.
The offices building stayed true to their values and the variety in workspace means they will never lack inspiration. For the energetic and creative staff, it’s a place they can come to every day and always feel at home...literally.
The project was completed with incredible attention to detail and environmental design, achieving a SKA Gold rating on completion
